Shahrukh Khan, who will be seen as a dreaded gangster in Don 2, has done some mind-blowing stunts on his own in the upcoming Hindi movie. The superstar, instead of using body double, opted to do some of the action sequences by himself.
The King Khan was initially feared to do the action sequences but decided to do it on his own after director Farhan Akhtar encouraged him. "I was very scared to do the stunts. I did have a body double but there are certain stunts that I did myself. I had to jump from a building and when I was standing on the edge I wondered, 'why am I doing this and not some romantic film?" The PTI quotes Shahrukh Khan as saying.
"But Farhan (Akhtar) helped me a lot. He has skydived some 99 times and that is amazing. In the end it was fun," said Shah Rukh, who was in the Capital last night to promote the film. Hollywood stunt director Wolfgang Stegemann of the Inglourious Basterds fame has choreographed the action sequences.
Don 2: The Chase Continues is a sequel to the 2006 blockbuster movie Don: The Chase Begins Again, which was remake of Amitabh Bachchan's yesteryear blockbuster of the same name. The forthcoming movie is directed by Farhan Akhtar and also features Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Lara Dutta, Kunal Kapoor and others.
