Stunt choreographers Anbu and Arivu are thrilled after working with superstar Rajinikanth for the first time for his upcoming movie Kabali, which releases in cinemas this Friday (July 22).
Talking about the action sequences, the duo has said, Rajinikanth performed each and every stunt with his own style and panache.
"At first we demonstrated the stunt scenes to Rajini sir on a slow and lighter vein without applying any force. Sir asked us to demonstrate the stunts with the required force and performed them with perfection. From that moment we got the confidence and went for the take without having any rehearsals," they told IndiaGlitz.
No body doubles were used during the making of the film.
"We have not used any body double anywhere in this film. Because the stunts are realistic and with the way they are choreographed, they will look good only if the original actor performs them," they have said.
Even a dangerous car drift, shown in the film's teaser, was performed by the Enthiran actor himself, according to the stuntmen.
"There is a particular car drift shot and we thought of using a dupe artist for this. But Rajini sir insisted that he will do it himself. During the take we were highly anxious but sir pulled it off excellently. This particular scene will be enjoyed by everyone while watching the film in theatres," they told the online news portal.
