Mumbai, May 14 -- Bollywood actor Rana Daggubati is currently shooting for an action film. He recently underwent extensive training in sword fighting to prepare for his role.
A source close to the actor says, "From the beginning Rana was keen on shooting for the action scenes himself. So, to make sure the scenes look authentic, he decided to get trained before the shooting began."
The actor, who was last seen in director Neeraj Pandey's Baby, confirmed the news, and said, "Weapon training is always fun. I have done a bit of it before. But for this film, it was more focused and precise."
He adds, "Along with the sword, I also trained with a mace and a chain mace; they have entirely different usage techniques. It was important for me to have knowledge of all this because the film is a period drama. So, it was essential to be able to use weapons of that time with ease."
