In his more than decade and a half years career, Akshay Kumar has performed some of the most dare devil stunts. Making a list of these stunts would indeed turn out to be a lengthy and elaborate exercise. Now as he features in CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA, a full on action comedy that has Kung Fu at the center stage, Akshay Kumar has yet again performed some unbelievable stunts.

"Yes, I had to train hard for these sequences in CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA", says Akshay Kumar who is returning to action after a long break, "The film has Kung Fu as an integral part of it and we all had to make sure that we get it right on screen without making any compromises."

On being asked which was his most difficult sequence in the film, he smiles while replying, "Balancing Deepika (Padukone) on just a forearm of mine was the toughest thing to do." In the film, there is a sequence during one of the training sessions where Akshay is required to jump from a tree. Similarly when Deepika jumps from a tree, Akshay (who is standing underneath) stops her fall to the ground as she lands on her feet over Akshay's arm as be balances her standing act.

There are quite a few other stunts that Akshay has performed in the film, one of which involved breaking pots with his head. Also, he is shown jumping over multiple sacks lying on a river while making flying strides, though that has been done with the use of invisible cables.
