Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has named Prakash Jha, the director of his forthcoming film `Aarakshan`, as `Khatron ka Khiladi`.
One would always find Prakash Jha with the film camera on an edge of a bridge without support, or on a crane 50 odd feet above the ground, amidst a chaotic crowd or under a running bulldozer to get a shot just right, sources close to the filmmaker said.
"Amitabh Bachchan who is working with Prakash Jha for the
first time, has dubbed him as a `Khatron Ka Khiladi`," a source said.
According to insiders, Jha has escaped a few accidents during the shoot of the film.
"While taking a shot under the bulldozer, the driver didn`t hear the command to `stop` from the action director, almost running over Jha. Second time, he took off on a scooter by himself during a location shift, and had an accident," said one.
"Unfazed by the injury Jha remarked to his crew jokingly `you`ve made me fall, but don`t think I have fallen from grace`," they added.
