More from the world of Entertainment:


“I heard the news about the sad incident that has happened to two actors of the Kannada film while shooting a stunt. I am shocked, sad and angry at the same time! I saw the video and there were no safety precautions taken for those actors. I think it’s a purely criminal act by the producer and action director; who make them jump into the water when they didn’t know how to swim! I think it is unpardonable,” Sonu told IANS.

The actor who has worked in Indo-Chinese collaborative projects like “Kung Fu Yoga” with Jackie Chan and “Xuanzang”, a film that has been selected as an official entry for the 89th Academy Awards, says their makers took greater care.

“They are very high on taking safety measures while shooting a stunt. They have an ambulance ready on set, doctors are always present there whether we need it or not, it is so well structured.

“Though in our Bollywood, we take certain precautions but we can learn a lot from them as they are very well-equipped,” he said.

Sonu, who has attempted many stunts in his films, to queries if he ever felt fear while doing any stunt, said: “If I am not comfortable doing something I don’t attempt it. As an actor, we have all the right to say no if not confident, and I do the same.”
