Small stunts can also kill you: Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar has jumped off a building’s terrace and engaged in a violent fist fight for his forthcoming film  Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty. But he believes that small or big, one needs to be cautious while doing any stunt as it can be fatal.

When asked if agile body, sharp memory and rational mind are required for doing risky scenes, he said, ‘I agree, but it’s not just for difficult stunts. Even a small jump from a stool requires all of that. We can’t take small stunts for granted because the biggest stunt doesn’t get you hurt. It’s the small stunt that can kill you.’

For the forthcoming actioner, directed by A.R. Murugadoss, the makers roped in popular British stuntman Greg Powell, known for his work in Hollywood's super hit franchises such as Harry Potter and  James Bond, to ensure that each stunt is executed well. And Akshay says that the action sequences will certainly surprise the audience.

‘My director loves realism. That’s why when you will see the fight sequences, you will be surprised. It’s all real fight. I got to do AKIRU (a form of martial art),’ said the 46-year-old, who plays an army officer in the film.

The realism doesn’t end with a few action moves. He says that the entire movie, shot in Mumbai and the capital, was filmed outside studios.
