Most often, directors conceive a concept which they convince the actor to take up and perform. But it is very rare to find an actor who is understanding of the director’s requirements and volunteers to perform; and that too, when the director himself is wary of.
We are talking about director Siva’s Ajith starrer upcoming ‘Veeram’. As reported earlier, the train fight sequence is a head turner in the movie, and is highly risky. Shot in Andhra Pradesh-Odisha border, the film involved very high levels of risk and the Siva claims that this was the only scene in his entire career, which he hesitated to shoot, owing to the lack of precautions, given the location of shoot.
Speaking on the episode, Siva says “It is one of the most daring stunts I have ever shot. It was so risky that I was not prepared to go for the shoot. But Ajith insisted that he will take the scene forward perform the stunt. He is certainly one of the most daring and dedicated actors. But he seldom believes in heroism and follows the script and goes to any extent that it demands.”
