Akshay Kumar & John Abraham shoot stunt for song sequence in Desi Boyz

Mumbai: With Akshay Kumar and John Abraham on board, there is bound to be some breathtaking action in Eros International’s Desi Boyz also starring Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh.

For a song sequence in the film, the two actors  shot a helicopter scene without a harness. In an attempt to make the shot look even more realistic, Akshay and John decided to shoot for the title track without a harness as it would show against their white clothes. Shot over a crowded city near a helipad under the guidance of stunt coordinator Mahendra Varma, the  shot involves the  actors standing against the open door of the chopper minus any strapping.

Eros International producer Krishika Lulla says, “They were at a height of about 30 floors. Rohit (Dhawan) was a super stressed director but Akki and John were confident they’d pull off the one-take shot that was needed for the title track.“
