Sanjay Dutt the dashing actor has done some unique sword fighting action stunts in a never-seen-before avatar, for director Soham Shah’s upcoming film Sher. To everybody’s amazement Sanjay Dutt did not require any training to execute the sequence and even completed it days before the planned schedule. How he did that is some other story.
Obviously, the actor had mastered the skill of using the Samurai sword long time ago, even before his first film Rocky. Very little is known about this talent of the actor as he never got an oppurtunity to exhibit it. Dutt’s late father, veteran actor Sunil Dutt had sent Sanjay to Japan to learn this form of martial art for a year even before his career began.
Now, years later when he was informed about the sequence in the film, Sanjay Dutt place everyone at ease on the sets allowing them to know that it’s a piece of cake for him and that he would do all the stunts himself.
As a matter of fact director Soham challenges young generation stars to accomplish the kind of perfection and body language that Dutt Saab has. “He has done a lot of cable work and sword fights. He applied the Samurai with such ease and comfort. We owe this to Sunil Dutt saab who had the farsightedness to send out Sanjay Dutt to Japan to learn the art”, gagged the director.
The upcoming film Sher, is produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Pvt Ltd., and is 95 percent complete with only a coulpe of songs and patch-work remaining. Vivek Oberoi, Humaima Mallik and Karishma Tanna are also part of the film along with Sanjay Dutt. Action director Kanal Kannan has choreographed the action sequences, who has done a large body of work down south.
