John and Akshay Kumar return to 'Action'
Actors John Abraham and Akshay Kumar are getting plenty of action these days and both are gung ho about their thrill seeking roles.While Akshay returns to his first love–stunts–in Kambakht Ishq, John too isn’t far behind if his latest movie New York is taken into consideration.
Pulling off stunts is like second nature to Akshay who's known to be a dynamo on the sets of his film allowing none to do that for him.But going by John's role in New York one will agree that looks can be deceptive and that he has got a lion’s heart.
Filmmaker Kabir Khan convinced John to do a stunt where he had to rappel down 46 floors from a high rise. But things didn’t exactly go as per plan and John was left to dangle in midair for two hours with helicopters flying overhead.
John kept hanging from the 20th floor of the Philadelphia National Centre building because a certain Barack Obama's convoy was passing through. As a result the film unit was asked to stay where they were and so did John.
So, it won’t be incorrect to say that ‘when the going gets tough the tough get going’.
