Ajay Devgn returns to action with ‘Tezz’
Mumbai: Bollywood’s tall, dark and handsome actor Ajay Devgn, who returned to action films with ‘Singham’, performed some adrenaline rushing stunts in his upcoming release ‘Tezz’.
Apparently, the promos of ‘Tezz’ mark the return of the vintage Ajay Devgn, who started his career as an action hero. In ‘Tezz’, Ajay performed amazing stunts designed by ace Hollywood stunt duo – Gareth Milne and Peter Pedrero (both known for the Bourne trilogy).
Talking to a daily, Ajay said, “It’s a fabulous mix of international action and Indian emotions. Films work only if they connect with the audience, and ‘Tezz’ has that emotional element. It has been presented in a very stylised manner with some fabulous action.”
In fact, Peter Pedrero, who was all praise for the actor, said, “Ajay has done a lot of his own stunts and was very focused. He is a very good student; when we demonstrated something, he would listen carefully and then within a couple of attempts perfect the shot. One day we were doing some test shots on a jet ski at very high speed and close to the riverbank. Priyan asked me, ‘Do you think we could get Ajay to do something like that?’ Just as I was about to answer him, we looked over at the man doing the tests and did a double take. Who we thought was a stunt driver actually turned out to be Ajay!”
‘Tezz’ is slated for release in April 2012.
