Audiences will be pleasantly surprised to see Mahakshay looking refreshingly different in Haunted and performing some daredevil stunts himself.
Action director Abbas Ali Moghul and everyone in the unit were very apprehensive about him performing the stunts. However, Mahakshay not only refused to use a body double but also relentlessly pushed himself for few of the action scenes.
Says Abbas, “Mahakshay has performed some deadly stunts himself in the movie. I remember a particular sequence where a chandelier falls on Mimoh and on the timing he had to roll on the ground before the chandelier bursts beside him. We were a little worried but Mimoh decided to do it all by himself. Though everyone on the sets suggested we use a body double but Mahakshay was very excited on doing it himself.”
Says Mahakshay, “I have had an absolutely fantastic time shooting for this particular action sequence. Though I got few swellings, the entire chandelier shot, the entire effect came out beautifully.”
Earlier Mahakshay also followed a rigorous fitness regime to shed the extra kilos and look leaner for the movie. From reviving his personality to performing the deadly stunts……looks like there’s no stopping Mahakshay!
