Big B calls Prakash Jha `Khatron Ka Khiladi`

New Delhi: Filmmaker Prakash Jha doesn`t believe in only saying "action" behind the camera but he is the one who can go to any length to get a perfect shot. This is why even Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan often calls him ‘Khatron Ka Khiladi’.

The 68-year-old star is working with Prakash for the first time in ‘Aarakshan’ and he saw the filmmaker shooting on the edge of a bridge without support and on a crane 50 feet above the ground just to get the perfect shot.

But this daredevil attitude did get Prakash into trouble twice during shooting.

Firstly, while taking a shot under the bulldozer, the driver didn`t hear the ‘stop’ and almost ran over him and second time he had an accident on a scooter.

This didn`t dampen the spirits of the filmmaker who jokingly told his crew: "You`ve made me fall, but don`t think I have fallen from grace."

‘Aarakshan’ is based on the controversial policies of caste-based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions. Apart from Amitabh, it features Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpayee and Prateik Babbar.

The film will hit theatres Aug 12.
