News is that the actor, who plays a Pehelwan (wrestler) in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming comic caper Bol Bachchan shocked the entire unit by lifting a very heavy traditional ‘Akhada’ for a particular scene. The equipment known as the ‘Ballam’ weighs around 50 kilos and is used by real Pehelwans in traditional Desi Akhadas to train and work out.
It so happened that one particular scene required the actor to lift the 50 kilo ‘ballam’ like an actual Pehelwan. Director Rohit Shetty had kept a lighter Ballam, which weighed much less than the original one, ready for the shot.
However, Devgn insisted on using the real Ballam as he wanted the shot to look perfect. And with a strong and fit physique like his, he managed to lift the very heavy equipment. The superstar pulled the shot off with much ease and perfection in true Hulk style!
Bol Bachchan produced by Ajay Devgn Films and Shree Ashtavinayak LFS Infra Ltd and presented by Twentieth Century Fox hits screens on 6th July 2012.
