Taking his love for action to a deadly high, John Abraham is back to the zone he reins in, performing some adrenaline pumping stunts, including a highlight cage-fight that pushed his body to its extremes.

The hand-to-hand combat scene left John with an injury but the actor continued to push his body to its limit, with as many as 540 air-kicks, for which professional Vietnamese trainers and African fighters were flown down to train the actor.

Producer Ramesh Taurani says, ''It was a cage fight sequence and is one of the biggest highlights of the film. In fact, even John ended up with a minor injury but we shot the scene till 2 am and completed it.''

What made it even more challenging for the actor, was the fact that he had to stick to a liquid diet to maintain his look in the film.

Admitting that it's one of his toughest scenes to date says John Abraham, ''What made it more grueling was the fact that I had to survive on a liquid diet for one whole week. The look is a tricky combination of beefy and lean.''

Says a source, ''John Abraham gave it his best and pushed himself to the extreme limit both in training and his diet. The entire scene was an expensive affair for the producers since foreign professionals had to be flown down for a single scene but John gave it his best and ensured the scene looks as deadly as it's meant to be.''

Produced by Tips the action thriller RACE 2 starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel is scheduled to release on 25th January 2013.
