Action sequence is one of the most intense moment in a film and
when the action is between Bollywood hunks, Akshay Kumar and John
Abraham, then one tends to expect some real fights. While shooting
for a fight sequence in Sajid Nadiadwala's next production,
Housefull 2, in London, the actors literally choked each
John and Akshay were enacting a fight scene where in the verbal
fight between them is extended to throat clutching. The shoot was
so intense that the actor ended up hurting each other. Director
Sajid Khan, confirms that news to Mid Day, “The idea was to give
the audiences a dose of face-offs between the heroes. Like Amitabh
Bachchan and Dharmendra, or Vinod Khanna in the older films, which
we don't get to see on screen these days."
The director also explained that the shot was a tight close up
of the actors faces, which demanded the real expressions and
reactions from both of them. After the shot John was left
suffocated with watery red eyes and marks on the neck, while Akshay
was left red faced, gasping for breath for a few minutes.
The shot finally turned out to be the best shot of Sajid Khan in
the film Housefull 2.
