The brave stuntmen

At the music launch of Ballary Naga, Vishnu chose to remember those unsung heroes whose actions have made many wannabe heroes superstars today. Recalling his terror and subsequent determination during the shoot of the film, where he had to perform dangerous stunts,  Vishnu thanked stuntman Suresh profusely. Vishnu, who jumped from a height of five and a half feet in Aptharakshaka, revealed that his foot was a little numb to the day.  It was a statement little hard to believe, given his cheerful countenance. An unusually emotional Vishnu recalled the near-death experience during Muthina Hara as well.

With Ballary Naga presenting five remarkable action sequences, it was apt that Vishnu chose to remember the services of the stuntmen.

Waiting for a smashing hit

K Manju was beaming. His favourite star looked dapper and best of all, had performed daring stunts for his film Ballary Naga. Presenting Vishnuvardhan in a different style, Manju promised festival delicacies to Vishnu fans much before Deepavali. It is after all Vishnuvardhan’s 199th film. Vishnu agreed. “The approach to this film is very different. Ballary Naga is the story of an orphan who is shaped by a society that lacks warmth. It is an interesting story,” he said. Director Dinesh Baboo revealed that there was no heroine opposite the Sahasa Simha. As for L N Shastri, the unassuming music director, it was a dream come true, composing for a Vishuvardhan film.

Vishnu, however was more worried about the fate of the industry going hitless for months together. Here's hoping Ballary Naga reverses the trend.
