Sanjay Dutt turns 'Samurai' for Sher
For all those who have been waiting for hardcore Sanjay Dutt style action, your wait is over. For director Soham Shah's upcoming film Sher, the stylish actor has done some unique sword fighting action stunts in a never-been-seen before avatar. To everyone's surprise Dutt did not require any training to perform the sequence and even finished it days before the planned schedule. How he did that is another story.
Apparently, the actor had mastered the skill of using the Samurai sword ages ago, even before his first film Rocky. Very little is known about this talent of the actor because he never got a chance to flaunt it. The actor's late father, veteran actor Sunil Dutt had sent Jr. Dutt to Japan to learn this form of martial art for a year even before his career began.
And today, years later when he was informed about the sequence in the film, he put everyone at ease on the sets letting them know that it's a piece of cake for him and that he would do all the stunts himself.
In fact director Soham challenges any younger generation star to achieve the kind of perfection and body language that Dutt Saab has. "He has done a lot of cable work and sword fights. He used the Samurai with such ease and comfort. We owe this to Sunil Dutt saab who had the foresight to send Sanjay to Japan to learn the art", quipped the director.
The action has been choreographed by action director Kanal Kannan who has done a huge body of work down south. The film, which is produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Pvt Ltd., is 95 percent complete with only a few songs and patch-work left. The film also stars Vivek Oberoi, Humaima Mallik and Karishma Tanna along with Dutt.
