Priyanka won’t use a body double for her stunts in ‘Don 2’
Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra seems to be taking a cue from daredevil Akshay Kumar, for the actress has decided to perform all her stunts in ‘Don 2’ by herself. What’s more is that the gutsy lass will be doing all the action without the help of a body double even for a single scene. And this will see Priyanka doing high-speed summersault jumps and plunges as she takes on the bad guys in the flick.
Confirming the news, Priyanka said, “The stunts in ‘Don 2’ will make the action scenes in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Don’ seem like minor rehearsals.”
What’s interesting is that the actress is giving in her cent percent to the role. And sources state that the actress even told director Farhan Akhtar that he should not keep her gender in mind and let her stunts be as tough as the ones her co-star Shah Rukh Khan is performing.
“I’m not revealing details, but yes, ‘Don 2’ would have far more complicated stunts than the first ‘Don’ or anything else I’ve ever done,” added the actress.
“The whole idea of doing action scenes is to make them look convincing. Today’s audience doesn’t fall for body doubles. Leading men or women do their stunts themselves in cinema all over the world. What’s the point of being coy about stunts? If I’m doing them then I go the whole hog,” said the actress.
