Fight Master Vijay has been working for the past 20 years and that wouldn't have been possible without his will power and discipline for fitness, he says he has a gym at home, does a warm up for one hour and cardio for an hour. Vijay Master, as he is fondly called, reminisces the most risky scene he was involved in so far and that had been during the shooting ofNippu Ravva. He was a body double for Balakrishna and had to jump from a 70-ft water tank and reach a chopper mid air carrying Amrish Puri. He had to do it twice before the shot was okayed and the fight master says he went up to the pilot and told him,“na life mee chethullo undhi”.
It is unfortunate that our stuntmen take such huge risks but their lives are not insured like the artistes in the circus.
