Madhuri makes tiring action look effortless, says trainer

Prev     Next


Madhuri Dixit's trainer Kanishka Sharma, who has choreographed her stunts in Gulaab Gang, is all praise for the actress saying she made some tiring action sequences look effortless on screen.

"I remember a scene where Madhuri had to twist a man's arm and kick him hard. I rehearsed with her for a few hours before the shot, but was a little apprehensive. Later, I was shocked at how comfortably she pulled it off. She makes all my otherwise tiring action look effortless on screen," Kanishka said.

The brief given to Kanishka by director Soumik Sen was to design the stunts in a manner that they look both aesthetic as well as realistic.

"It couldn't be as gritty as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon neither could it be as suave as the Matrix," he said.

Madhuri trained in rare martial art forms for the action scenes.

"I extensively trained Madhuri for a month in Shaolin Kung Fu, besides stick training, Shaolin joint locking, Kali knife, short stick and of course, close combat," he added.

Gulaab Gang, starring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla in the lead, is produced by Anubhav Sinha.

The film releases on March 7.

Parineeti Chopra: I am not overweight any more

Parineeti Chopra says she may have weighed a few extra pounds in her debut movie but she has become thinner with her rigorous work-out regime.

"When I had entered the industry I was big and used to fit into that size category. Now, I feel I am not, as I have lost much more weight and look better. I don't want to be in that weight category. I am working very hard to become thin. I feel I am skinny now," Parineeti said.

Not everyone in Bollywood is ready to confirm when it comes to looking thin. Actresses like Sonakshi Sinha, Huma Qureshi and Vidya Balan are comfortable in the way they look.

Parineeti, however, says she always felt uncomfortable with her extra pounds.

"Those actresses are comfortable in what they look like. I used to feel uncomfortable. I am in a visual medium and should be able to compete with every good-looking actress."

"The body type affects what I wear and I can't get best dresses for myself. I can't wear sleeveless, because I would look fat in it. I want to lose even more weight and look better in real life. On screen, if I have to wear shorts or bikini for a scene I should have the body for that," she said.
