So on the subject, we ask director Prabhu Dheva what went behind Ajay Devgn's stellar martial arts sequence, he said “Ajay sir has a two and a half minute fight sequence where he will be seen in bare body look and performing some stylish sword fighting .When I told Ajay sir about the sequence he readily agreed for it and in fact just for this fight scene he lost 17 kilos. Sword fighting has not been seen in the films for many years and that is one of the reasons why we introduced sword fighting, especially the Ninja Sword fighting which looks extremely stylish.”
Prabhu Dheva further goes on to add about how methodical and strict the actor was with the shoot. “For this sequence, Ajay sir underwent a lot of training as the posture and the technique had to be correct and to the mark. He used to even exercise on the sets before the sequence and was on a strict diet. One day he was down with fever and in spite of that he insisted on working out and shooting for the fight sequence which was extremely difficult.”
ACTION JACKSON also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Manasvi Mamgai & others and is set to release on 5th December, 2014.
