John Abraham battles life-threatening stunt for Shootout At Wadala
"This was for an extended sequence in the film where John is standing on the doors of a running train. Though it seemed like an easy kill on paper, there were complexities that were identified once the whole set-up was being put into place to can the shot," informs a source.
The shot required John to not just bring almost his entire body outside the train, but warranted that John mouth a few dialogues while being oblivious of danger that lay ahead.
"Just capturing the sequence was a nightmare as after every few meters there were pillars right next to the tracks. A few inches more and John's head would have smashed on to the pillars. There was no option to use a duplicate either since the scene had to be captured in one go with John's body and face visible. Time was running out as permissions were for a limited duration," the source continues.
Director Sanjay Gupta was conscious about that as well. He worked with the technical team to make sure that all safety precautions were taken
