A French stuntman named Jawed Al Berni has pulled off some dangerous stunts in the Kabir Khan venture with amazing ease
Watch Salman Khan’s character leaping from a dangerous height in the trailer of Ek Tha Tiger very closely (we have scrutinized the video a thousand times already!) and you will find that it’s not Sallu bhai who has pulled off the risky stunt. Watch the jump again, observe every frame and press the pause button, and you will see a man with a much leaner torso doing the stunt for the superstar.
We hear that a major series of Salman’s stunts in the film are performed by stuntman Jawed El Berni, a French boy. Jawed has been practicing martial arts for the last twenty years and has even learnt parkour.
During the filming of Ek Tha Tiger, Salman Khan was still recuperating from trigeminal neuralgia (a facial nerve disorder), and therefore was unable to perform major action sequences on his own. Thus a body double had to be summoned. A little birdie tells us that in the film even Katrina Kaif has a body double; her name is Rochelle Okoye, and she has been a part of Hollywood films like Twilight and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
We appreciate Salman for not going overboard with his action scenes and leaving the risky parts to the experts! Nevertheless, the trailer of the film looks promising because of those fine stunts.
Watch the video and see if you can spot Sallu’s body double!
