Deepika Padukone will reportedly be performing her own stunts in Yash Raj Films’ upcoming action-thriller, ‘Pathan’ co-starring Shah Rukh Khan.
The actress, who previously did something similar in ‘Chandni Chowk To China’ (2009) quite earlier in her career, is expected to do some daredevil stunts in ‘Pathan’.
‘Chandni Chowk To China’ director Nikhil Advani recalls, “There were some scenes that we thought to be too dangerous. But she insisted on doing away with the body double and also the wirings. She’s very athletic, it runs in her family. Then there was Akshay Kumar to inspire her. Akshay had done so much on-screen action. It was a novel experience for Deepika. And she sailed through the action. She worked really hard to get the posture and power in the action scenes.”
