Kangana didn’t use body double and performed action sequences by herself. Action director, Nick Powell, who worked with her in the film said, “Kangana insisted on doing all the action herself. The idea was to show a warrior who has been learning the ropes from a young age. Kangana practised sword fighting for eight hours a day, and convincingly pulled off each stunt. I have worked with the likes of Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, but she gave me the unique experience in which an actress was leading the pack. There were times when she pulled off smoother stunts than Tom Cruise.”
Directed by Krish Jagarlamudi, the movie also features Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta and Zeeshan Ayyub in pivotal roles. It is all set to hit the screens on January 25.
