Amitabh Bachchan Severely Injures Himself In A Stunt Sequence In 'Teen Patti'
The sixty seven year old icon of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan had seriously injured himself while doing a difficult stunt during the shoot of his film ‘Teen Patti’. Reportedly, Amitabh attempted to do the action by himself without taking the help of the German action-director Armin Sauer.
It was that scene where Amitabh had to hold on to the front windshield while the car raced a few hundred meters before braking to a stop abruptly and throwing him on the road. In the set of ‘Teen Patti’ the expert action-director of German Sauer was also present and wanted to go along with him during the critical stunt. However, Sauer was stopped by Amitabh for he wanted to show his caliber in carrying out his stunt all alone.
Consequently, when the action was rolled Amitabh unable to bear the force of the speeding car that hit his car, eventually was thrown out of his car and injured himself badly.
Amitabh is very much engrossed in his character Venkat Subramaniam and has performed all his stunt by himself according to the director Leena Yadav. The director Yadav stated, “He took all the precautions to ensure that Amitji didn’t suffer even a scratch,”
According to sources report Sauer wanted to go with Bachchan’s duplicate but the veteran actor insisted to do the shot himself and had ensured the Gernan director that he will be absolutely be fine without him. Even refused the security of wireworks and cables and gave a perfect first take. Sauer was amazed to see Amitabh’s dedication towards his work and stated, “Professional, committed actor who’s still keen to improve every day despite being in the business for decades.”
Really hats off for this veteran actor who is still open to experiments disregarding his age!
