Ajay Devgn has directed U Me Aur Hum (2008) and Shivaay (2016) in the past, and when the Bhuj team needed him, he put on the director’s hat once again for the action sequences of the film. As per a Mid-day report, in a schedule that was conducted only days before the lockdown was announced, Devgn choreographed two elaborate fight sequences featuring Sanjay Dutt and him. This was because South stunt coordinator Peter Hein was unavailable.
A source told the publication, "The sequences come at a crucial juncture in the narrative. In the first set-piece, Ajay is seen attempting hand-to-hand combat as he fights the spies sent by the Pakistani army. The other segment, an outdoor shoot, has Sanjay Dutt and Sharad Kelkar take on the baddies. While Peter Hein has handled the remaining action scenes, he was not available in mid-March when these pieces were to be shot. Since producers Ginny Khanuja, Bhushan Kumar, Vajir Singh and Kumar Mangat Pathak had booked the Powai studio and got the combination dates of the concerned actors, they requested Ajay to take charge. Anyone who has worked with the actor has noticed his ex pertise in mounting a high-octane fight scene, like father Veeru Devgan."
Actress Pranitha Subhash, who has done tons of films down South like Masss, Hello Guru Prema Kosame, Brahma, Whistle and more, is now all set to enter the Hindi film industry with Bhuj. In an interview to us, she spoke about her first meeting with co-star Ajay Devgn, she said, "I was star-struck when I first met him. The thing is that he doesn't talk much, he just says two-three sentences. So, after one point, it all got intimidating and stuff." Revealing the reason she chose to do Bhuj: The Pride Of India as her first Bollywood film, Pranitha said, "I love doing patriotic films and anything that has to do with our country. And this one had that flavour, it has the India-Pak war. So, I thought that would be an amazing thing to be a part of."
