Megastar Akshay Kumar is renowned for stirring the emotions of his fans worldwide with his films. The filmmakers of the upcoming courtroom comedy drama JOLLY LL.B 2 – the sequel to the National Award winning movie – have released another behind the scenes video, this time showing Akshay Kumar becoming emotional during his first ever visit to the holy city of Banaras.
Akshay Kumar tweeted the video with the following message: Banaras was definitely the highlight of #JollyLLB2‘s shoot for me – first visit, dip in the holy Ganga, couldn’t get better!
Bollywood’s very own Khiladi Akshay Kumar is renowned for performing his own dare-devil stunts without the use of a body-double.
The film required a scene where Jolly had to jump into the river however director Subhash Kapoor was conscious that the tide was very high in the river given it was immediately post the monsoon period. In the video, the megastar is seen refusing to use a body-double and performs his own stunt by jumping straight into the river.
He says, “Although my director has requested for a body double to do my stunts, I refuse to do so and will perform my own stunts.” He goes on to reassure his director by saying “Don’t worry, I’m a good swimmer!”
Produced by Fox Star Studios and directed by Subhash Kapoor, Jolly LL.B 2 starring Akshay Kumar, Huma Qureshi, Annu Kapoor and Saurabh Shukla is slated to release on 10th February 2017.
