It was an helicopter scene in Billa and a car chasing scene in Arrambam that showed Ajith Kumar's desire to perform action sequences on his own without using body double. Now, he seems to have raised the bar as in his latest movie Veeram, he has done a stunt sequence on a train.
Director Siruthai Siva has spilled the beans over the action sequence in forthcoming Arrambam. The filmmaker himself was tensed when Ajith Kumar performed the stunt sequence. Even though he knew that Thala was pushing his limits, the director couldn't stop because the actor was eager on doing the action scene on his own.
It was a two-minute scene where Ajith Kumar was flirting with danger. Ajith Kumar also told Siva not to change his concept of filming the scene just because he was performing. Siruthai Siva says that such scenes would give shivers to action directors too, but the Mankatha actor confidently performed it.
On the other end, Ajith Kumar, who injured his right leg during the shooting of his last release Arrambam, will be undergoing a surgery soon.
Veeram also features Tamanna Bhatia, Santhanam and others in the cast. It will hit the screens in January and the audio of the flick will hit the stores in December.
