Bollywood Actor John Abraham took his passion for bikes to the next level when he lifted a motorbike Bajaj Pulsar 150 weighing 143 kg for his upcoming film ‘Force’. The actor represents a Yamaha as its brand ambassador and is known to own plenty of fast motorcycles like the Yamaha R1 and the Suzuki Hayabusa.
While shooting recently for director Nishikant Kamat’s Force, the actor had to film a scene that needed him to lift a bike and then fling it. As he has beefed up for the film, John insisted on doing the stunt himself.
Says producer Vipul Shah, “I was not on the sets the day John was shooting for the scene.
When Nishikant called me to say he was planning to do it without a harness, I told him not to allow him to do the same as he could hurt his back or knee. But he was confident and insisted on performing it.”
The bike weighed 143 kgs, and the actor did not want to resort to cables to do the scene. It took him some takes and a lot of effort to perform the heavy stunt, but in the end he pulled it off brilliantly.
Adds action director Allan Amin, “John is a physical guy so the action was all high octane. We did use cables for certain sequences, but when it needed to be raw like the bike scene, he did it himself.”
