Ajay Devgn Performs All His Stunts In Baadshaho
It’s no news that Ajay Devgn does almost all of his stunts himself, but in Milan Luthria’s Baadshaho there was one stunt that he found extremely challenging and complex. Designed by German action director Ramazan Bulut, the stunt required him to slide under an armoured truck. Though all safety precautions were in place, the stunts were quite challenging.
There was a gap between the bottom of the truck was just enough for him to fit in while on the other side of him were rapidly rotating tyres. Right next to his face were the jagged rotating edges of the differential of the truck, an engine element prominent in armoured trucks of the 70’s. The sequence required him to simultaneously drag his feet on the ground, pull himself towards the front of the truck, and look up towards the camera which could have him injure his head.
Though Milan was insistent he tilts his head up only as much as was completely safe, he was not prepared for the extent Ajay would go to. He gave a terrific shot with superb presence of mind, which is the most essential thing in action. But because of the narrow gaps and the rotating wheels and blades, Ajay was having a claustrophobic attack. He was getting very uncomfortable and also beginning to get disoriented.
