Bollywood filmmakers are returning slowly back to resuming their pending projects after the coronavirus lockdown. One such film is Abhishek Dudhaiya’s war drama ‘Bhuj: The Pride of India’, which will be among the first to return to the floors.
It has been revealed that Ajay Devgn, who stars in the film, choreographed two elaborate fight sequences between him and Sanjay Dutt in the film. Mid-Day reports that South stunt coordinator, Peter Hein was unavailable for the shoot prior to the lockdown.
A source told the publication, “The sequences come at a crucial juncture in the narrative. In the first set-piece, Ajay is seen attempting hand-to-hand combat as he fights the spies sent by the Pakistani army. The other segment, an outdoor shoot, has Sanjay Dutt and Sharad Kelkar take on the baddies. While Peter Hein has handled the remaining action scenes, he was not available in mid-March when these pieces were to be shot. Since producers Ginny Khanuja, Bhushan Kumar, Vajir Singh and Kumar Mangat Pathak had booked the Powai studio and got the combination dates of the concerned actors,they requested Ajay to take charge. Anyone who has worked with the actor has noticed his ex pertise in mounting a high-octane fight scene, like father Veeru Devgan.”
The film has around a week’s worth of shoot left.
