Being one of the most fittest and hottest actors in the industry, Ajay Devgn is also one of the most celebrated action heroes in Bollywood. Naturally, everyone is looking forward to watching his power-packed scenes in Prabhudeva‘s upcoming film, Action Jackson. Not to mention, his martial art sequences have grabbed our attention ever since the flick’s trailer and promos aired.
So when director Prabhudheva was asked to reveal what went on behind Ajay Devgn’s stellar martial arts sequence, this is what he had to say:
Ajay sir has a two and a half minute fight sequence where he will be seen in a bare body look, performing some stylish sword fighting. When I told Ajay sir about the sequence he readily agreed for it and in fact just for this fight scene he lost 17 kilos. Sword fighting has not been seen in the films for many years and that is one of the reasons why we introduced sword fighting, especially the Ninja Sword fighting which looks extremely stylish.
Prabhudheva further goes on to add how methodical and strict the actor was with the shoot:
For this sequence, Ajay sir underwent a lot of training as the posture and the technique had to be correct. He would even exercise on the sets before the sequence and was on a strict diet. One day, he was down with a fever and in spite of that he insisted on working out and shooting for the fight sequence which was extremely difficult.
Well, with such a strict regime and rigorous training routine, no wonder he managed to achieve the unthinkable in such little time. We are sure the fight sequences in Action Jackson are going to be nothing less than a treat for all action lovers!
