We have often seen actors and actresses risking their life for a mere scene of a movie. No doubt acting is not everyone's forte. But still, actors and actresses struggle to get the scene right at even the cost of their own life.


One such dedicated actor who is known to perform hard-hitting stunts is Vidyut Jammwal. We have already seen his action and stunts in the movie Commando. But Vidyut nearly risked his life for a scene in his upcoming movie Junglee.


Talking about the scene Vidyut told a leading daily "The scene originally had me running alongside Bhola and the other elephants but it wasn't working because they don't run in a straight line. After a few takes, I knew that to make this work, I had to run between them. I just took the plunge without thinking about the danger I was putting myself in. In that moment, I felt like the world around me was closing in on me. All I did was follow my core instinct and focus everything on finding my way to the other side."


Talking about how he escaped the scene he said "Elephants are just incredible creatures and when they run in herds, nothing can stand in their way. I was guided by my heartbeat and the sound pattern created by the herd as they ran. As I closed in, I saw a narrow space between two elephants and slid my way through, and that's how we got that shot."


Junglee marks the debut of Marathi actress Pooja Sawant in the Hindi film industry. It also stars Asha Bhatt. Directed by Chuck Russell, the film will hit the theatres on April 5, 2019.
