After playing a historical role in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodhaa Akbar, Sonu is excited playing yet another one in highly-anticipated movie, Manikarnika, also featuring Kangana Ranaut.
Being a historical drama, Sonu is quite excited to be part of it since it gives him the opportunity to do lot of action and sword-fighting sequences.
A source informs, “Sonu is known for his chiseled physique and he is always in his best shape. The talented actor, who maintains a healthy and disciplined life, likes performing action scenes on his own. He has done the same for most of his films, including his Indo-Chinese production, Kung-Fu Yoga. Since the actor will be seen performing heavy-weight sword fights and hand-to-hand combat besides death-defying stunts, the makers suggested him to opt for a body double.”
“Interestingly, Sonu has pulled off dangerous action stunts while shooting for the film in Mumbai and Hyderabad, much to the surprise of the makers and his co-stars,” the source adds.
Sonu says, “I enjoy doing my own stunts and that gives me high. I think the confidence also comes from the fact that you know things are well organised. When you’re working with a brilliant director , a huge ensemble and a brilliant technical team, there is no way to go wrong.”
