Akshay-John on a high!


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, Sept. 10 -- Garam Masala actors Akshay Kumar and John Abraham have taken the risk factor to another level. While shooting for the title track of their upcoming film, Desi Boyz, in Bangkok last week, the duo agreed to a daredevil stunt in a helicopter.

They chose to shoot without wearing a harness as it would have showed up against their white clothes and stood poised at the open door of the chopper with no strapping. Confirming the news producer Krishika Lulla of Eros International says, "They were at a height of about 30 floors. Rohit (Dhawan) was a super stressed director but Akki and John were confident they'd pull off the one-take shot that was so badly needed for the title track."

It was an expensive shoot taken over Bangkok city near a helipad. Mahendra Varma directed the action sequence. The film also features Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh. The latter she be seen in a glamorous avatar and has a special dance number.
