Abhimanyu Dassani, who garnered rave reviews for Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, will next be starring in a larger than life action entertainer Nikamma. Director Sabbir Khan who introduced mega action star Tiger Shroff, is ready to showcase Abhimanyu in the action romance.
It seems Abhimanyu was the first name that popped into the director’s mind for the role. While, on hearing the script the actor instantly said yes to the film and the role.
When Abhimanyu got some insight into the action he is expected to do in the film, he went and trained in a special martial art. The actor likes doing the action scenes on his own so to prepare for the action scenes, which include actual fight sequences, Abhimanyu flew to Turkey to master Capoeira, which is hand to hand combat.
Abhimanyu explained, “There is a lot of action in Nikamma. Sabbir sir, and I both were keen that I do all the action and stunts myself. We wanted all the action sequences to look authentic. We decided that I should learn Capoeira before starting the shoot. We traveled to Turkey specially to learn this fight form.”
Adding, “It was an amazing experience. I trained with the armed forces there which was extremely engaging because it wasn’t just fancy film fighting, but moreover real life protection and take downs.”
NIKAMMA, which also stars Shilpa Shetty and newcomer Shirley Setia, is jointly produced by Sony Pictures International Productions and Sabbir Khan Films.
We have a wait since the film is currently in production now and is scheduled to release on 5th June 2020.
