Saif Ali Khan has turned action king for his forthcoming Tips film RACE. It is a known fact that actors have been using body doubles for doing complicated and dangerous stunts but Saif refused to do so.
RACE is an action film directed by the duo Abbas-Mustan. According to Abbas-Mustan "RACE being an action film has many dangerous stunts in it and all the stunts had to be shot in such a way that it looked dangerous as well as real." In one of the scenes Saif had to jump down from a 22 storied building and Saif refused to use a body double for the scene. He wanted to do the scene himself.
Though Saif was tied to a harness it was very dangerous as it was not a child's play to jump down from a 22 storied building. Says producer Ramesh Taurani, "We are thankful to Saif for doing this stunt. He did this not just once but thrice just to okay the shot. Everybody on the sets would get frightened and our hearts would stop beating as soon as he jumped down."
All the necessary precautions were taken while shooting the scenes. A doctor and an ambulance were kept ready on the sets as a part of precautionary measures. Hats off to Saif for being such courageous person and doing such difficult stunts.
