Himesh, the action hero!

rediff Entertainment Bureau | August 20, 2008 15:03 IST

Himesh Reshammiya

That music comes naturally to Himesh Reshammiya [Images] is a well known fact. But did you know that the singer has a knack for action as well?

The singer surprised everyone on the sets of his upcoming film Karzzz, when he performed a number of action stunts that included jumps and flying kicks ala Bruce Lee.

A source informed us that Himesh performed the stunts in one take.

When asked how he managed the feat, Himesh replied, "I am a huge movie buff and have grown up watching only movies. I have watched each superstar carefully and every good performer is like a guru to me. They are inspiration to me. So acting comes as naturally to me as music. That is the reason I was comfortable doing those scenes."

Karzzz is the remake of 1980 Subhash Ghai's [Images] film, Karz that starred Rishi Kapoor [Images], Tina Munim and Simi Garewal [Images].

Himesh is playing the role of Monty played by Rishi, Shweta Kumar is taking on Tina Munim and Urmila Matondkar [Images] is playing Simi Garewal's role.
