    What inspired you to take up the project?

    The first time I heard about 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' was when Rajesh (Mapuskar) and I were working on '3 Idiots'. When I heard about the title, I went up to him and told him that the title of the film is very catchy. That's when he casually mentioned the plot and I loved it so much that  I wanted to be a part of the film but other actors were being considered for the film at that time so I wasn't sure if I would make it. But after a year and half, I

    Mahendra Verma showing stunts for 'Ready'

    Stunt director Mahendra Verma talks about the intricacies of being a body double and how he choreographs dare devil stunts

    While discussing an action scene in ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karoge’, the producer of the film, Sajid Nadiadwala made it clear that he wanted stunts a la ‘Matrix Reloaded’. The process involved 39 cameras shooting Salman from different directions and another motion control camera capturing him fighting six Akshays. The scene was performed and the film went on to be a hit. It started a new revolution in action choreography and the man responsible for it was Mahendra Verma.

    From jumping from a helicopter to diving into the ocean, Verma is a master of them all and given his expertise in orchestrating action sequences for films, one can't help but wonder whether or not he was one of those daredevils who took singular pleasure in jumping off the roof or swinging by a tree when he was younger. “I grew up watching Bruce Lee’s films. After coming back from the show, we wouldRead More »from The man who made Salman fly

He is well-versed with dancing and can grasp steps quickly. Also, having worked with him for over a decade now, I am very familiar with his body language. I know what will go down well with his personality and what will not suit his persona. For this particular number
