Prakash Jha is always found in midst of the action on his film set rather than sitting by the camera in his director's chair calling out action.
He is known to be one director who takes on challenging subjects with his films, seems to have taken a few during the shooting of his next film AARAKSHAN. One would always find Prakash Jha with the film camera on an edge of a bridge without support, or on a crane 50 odd ft above the ground, amidst of a chaotic crowd or under a running bulldozer to get a shot just right. Amitabh Bachchan who is working with Prakash Jha for the first time, rightly dubbed him as a "Khatron Ka Khiladi."
Being the daredevil director, Prakash Jha escaped a few accidents during the shoot. It happened twice during shooting, while taking a shot under the bulldozer, the driver didn't hear the command to "Stop" from the action director, almost running over Prakash Jha. Second time, he wasn't as lucky as he rode a scooter by himself during a location shift, and met with an accident. Unfazed by the injury Prakash Jha jokingly remarked to his crew, "You've made me fall, but don't think I have fallen from grace."
