Shahrukh Khan performs raw and real stunts like arch-rivals Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn in Chennai Express: View on the sets pics!

In Rohit Shetty’s upcoming romcom, SRK shoots action sequences despite shoulder injury

It’s been quite a long time since we have seen Shahrukh Khan taking on the bad guys with those blood-red revengeful eyes and powerful dialogue baazi. It’s hard to recollect SRK’s last action-packed role; the films that we remember and love especially because of Shahrukh performing some hard-core action and hand-to-hand combat scenes date way back to the days of Karan Arjun, Koyla, Baazigar and Darr.

And looks like SRK is back with the genre with Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express! Though Shetty is known for incorporating his own style of over-the-top yet entertaining action sequences, we are told King Khan has done some raw and real action scenes this time around. Take a look at the on the sets pictures and you’ll know what exactly we mean! Shahrukh in a blood soaked shirt and ganji laughing out loud with a unit member in the midst of rehearsals, driving an open orange coloured jeep and as per Rohit’s instructions flying mid air trying to stop the moving jeep…and then the trio including Deepika Padukone posing with the unit members!

Well, Chennai Express promises to bring back Shahrukh in a raw action streak avatar – something that we have been used to seeing his competitors do – especially Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn in films like Wanted, Dabangg, and Golmaal series and walking away with all the whistles, claps and accolades. SRK might be coming back into this mode after years, and even if it is only for a handful of scenes, we are happy and quite surprised to see the Baadshah perform all those stunts with the same guts and gusto despite his shoulder injury!
