Bollywood films pack a lot of action. The high-octane action sequences in movies like War have always left the audience in awe. Fans love it when their favourite actor appears on-screen and stereotypically knocks out all the antagonist’s henchmen before facing him in a final brawl. However, in Bollywood there have been many actors who like to perform their own stunts. Let’s take a look at some of these actors:
Akshay Kumar performs his stunts by himself. He also does it for the sport. He is a trained martial artist and it does show in his films. Akshay has a black belt in Taekwondo and always chooses to perform his own stunts. He often refuses any body double. Akshay’s dedication shows in Khiladi 420 in a stunt involving on top of an aeroplane, the face of the performer was not going to be seen and could have easily been performed by a double. He still insisted on performing it himself. He even performed live stunts when he hosted a season of Khatron Ke Khiladi. The actor has earned the name Khiladi.
Hrithik Roshan is not only about his Greek God looks. The War actor is also aesthetically fit and flexible and that is why he chooses to perform his own stunts whenever he gets an opportunity. Hrithik has performed stunts in movies like Krrish, Dhoom 2, Jodha Akbar. He even got injured himself while performing stunts for the movie Bang Bang and Mohenjo Daro!
