4- How do you plan all the choreography and action as you do it on your own and just like it was in Commando, the whole airport sequence it was just like it had never happened in the industry or also we can say at international level.
Ans. Actually i always do not need to plan. It’s like they give me the script and I think what else can I do and you just do it. But in the case of Badshaho I did not think too much because my role was of an army officer and the director was all ready with what I had to do, he had everything in his mind and I just did it.
