Mumbai: Akshay Kumar might be Bollywood original action hero, but Saif Ali Khan is itching to change all that. The actor, who is known for his romantic image seems to be craving a makeover. And believe it or not but Saif is going to great lengths to change his image from a lover-boy to a macho hero in his upcoming film ‘Agent Vinod’.
Saif will reportedly perform a death defying stunt in the movie. As per reports, a special trainer has been flown down so that Saif Ali Khan’s action sequence in a helicopter goes as planned. And that’s not all, for the climax of the film, Saif will undergo rigorous training.
Confirming the news, director Sriram Raghvan said, “Yes, we have a major chopper scene and Saif will undergo a 20-day training session for it. George A Aguilar (of ‘The Scarlet Letter’ fame) and his team from the US are designing the sequence. “
“We had the option to shoot the normal scenes in Mumbai first but we thought that we will finish the action sequences, which will take 15-20 days of shooting first, so that the difficult part is over,” he added.
