John Abraham, who will be playing the baddie in the much-awaited Race 2, has gone through extensive martial arts training in order to perform believable stunts. According to John, the first few days of training, he had tears in his eyes and was screaming out with pain – but his trainers continued to push him and he pulled through. Here’s what he said – you gotta take a look at his list of injuries! *phew*

According to TOI:

John Abraham says: “My back was bleeding, I had a 14-inch gash. I cracked my shin bone and navicular bone in the ankle area. I had to take a two-week break from action. My orthopedic surgeon joked about putting me on a retainership in his hospital, given the number of times I visited him.”

Why is he doing this, you wonder? John says he wants to set the benchmark for raw action in Bollywood and wants to ensure that his stunts are always believable. He’s done one cage fight scene in particular for the film (sans cables) and claims that this is his item song. *lol* So are you looking forward to John’s “item song” in Race 2?!
