At 68, Amitabh Bachchan does his own stunt

No slowing down for this superstar

Amitabh Bachchan can be adamant at times. Filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi is discovering this while filming Power with the super star.

At the age of 68, when the bones, marrows and cartilage are wearing thin, any actor would prefer to not strain his body for fear of causing some permanent damage. But no such apprehensions for Big B.

This came to light during the shooting of Santoshi’s film Power. The director had roped in a body double to do stunts for Big B. The idea was to keep the body double on standby and let him step in quietly when the stunts were to be shot.

However, Big B knew of Santoshi’s plan and wouldn’t let a body double step in.

“Amitji tricked us. He continued doing the stunt and went further than he was supposed to,” Santoshi is quoted to have said.

Santoshi isn’t revealing anything about the ‘dangerous’ stunt that Big B has pulled off. He says people will see it when Power releases.
