Akhil Kapur – New ‘khiladi’ on the block

Buzz is that the nephew of veteran actor-politician Vinod Khanna, newcomer Akhil Kapur, who would be marking his acting debut in the film DESI KATTHEY performed a risky action sequence for it all on his own. According to sources, Akhil had to jump from a height in one of the scenes. What’s more, despite being suggested to rope in a stunt man by action director Jai Singh Nijjar, known for his work in SINGHAM RETURNS, CHENNAI EXPRESS, and director-producer Anand Kumar, Akhil went ahead with the scene.

Talking about it, Akhil said in a statement, “A lot of precaution is taken during action sequences that require jumping from hi-rises. But I was confident and my aim was accurate.” It’s noted that Akhil is a martial art expert and hence was comfortable doing the stunt on his own.

DESI KATTEY is an action-adventure film, based on shooting sports. The film also stars Jay Bhanushali and Suniel Shetty, and is set to hit the screens on September 26.
