Salman Khan’s super-heroic stunts will have to be put on hold. His neurological condition has aggravated and even simple action scenes can cause serious damage to the actor’s health.
“Even a slight misjudged punch on the face could trigger off his condition and cause acute pain,” informed a close friend of the actor.
The friend revealed that a collective decision has been taken by the family members and the filmmakers of Salman’s upcoming ventures to keep him “out of danger as much as possible”.
Putting the precautionary measures to action has now become an issue for Salman’s next few films — Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg 2, Sohail’s Sher Khan and Shirish Kunder’s Kick, which are stunt-driven.
The makers, who are more concerned about their lead actor than the action scenes in their films, have already started hunting for solutions.
Mirror has learnt that Sohail Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala, producers of Sher Khan and Kick respectively, have already hired the best stunt directors and body doubles from Los Angeles and Hong Kong.
Salman however, is not willing to let go completely. According to a source, the actor insists on being present while the body doubles do the complicated action scenes.
In fact, after the accident that occurred on the sets of Dabangg 2 wherein a stuntman got injured, Salman has been adamant on doing the action scenes himself hereafter. “Arbaaz is trying hard to convince him to stay away from the sets when the action sequences are performed,” added the source.
