After busting a knee while filming a sequence for the upcoming Force sequel inBudapest, the actor is reshooting the sequence in Mumbai.
After John Abraham busted his knee while shooting an action sequence for director Abhinay Deo’s Force 2 in Budapest last year, he had to undergo corrective surgery. Now, Mirror has leant that the 43-year-old actor is set to re-shoot the particular sequence in Mumbai today, but with more precautionary measures in place this time around to ensure that there are no accidents.
This accident could have been avoided. John had pulled off a fantastic shot but insisted on doing the stunt one more time and ended up hurting himself.
Speaking to Mirror (October 22, 2015), he had reminisced, “I was rushed to a local hospital in Budapest where a huge injection was administered to my knee and the blood aspirated.” He’d admitted that he had not realised the extent of his injuries and had returned to the shoot, sliding down the roof. His knee swelled to the size of a watermelon.
“The one-take sequence requires John to dash past a door and take on half-a-dozen men at once.We suggested using a body double this time but John wanted to do it himself, again. However, we are ensuring that nothing goes wrong this time,” producer Vipul Shah informed Mirror from Bangkok.He added that John has been rehearsing for the sequence for a week now which has been choreographed by action director Kaecha. “We are not going back toHungary for the reshoot but have created a set in Mumbai similar to the one in Budapest.The sequence itself is a lot more bigger and better this time. I am sure John has consulted his doctor and he will carry it through as he does everytime,” he added. The scene in question will be shot over two days.After this the team will picturise a romantic song with John and his leading lady,Sonakshi Sinha, some time in August. “That will be shot around Mumbai as well,” Shah signs off.
