Actor Ayushmann Khurrana who featured in Sriram Raghvan’s crime thriller film ‘Andhadhun’, penned down an emotional post for film’s action director Parvez Khan who passed away on Monday Morning.
Talking to Instagram, Ayushmann wrote, “Parvez bhai introduced me to my first action stunt! I managed to pull it off in a chase sequence in Andhadhun and that too without safety mats! Though Parvez bhai trained me and we rehearsed with safety mats, he was confident I would pull it off without the mats in the final take! His skill set was so strong that he taught me every possible step to land the jump perfectly and I did! His death is a big loss to the industry and for me. It’s huge for me personally because for me he will always be my action master. I’m praying for him and his entire family.”
Ayushmann shared four behind the scenes pictures of ‘Andhadhun’ in which Parvez Khan is guiding him to perform stunts in the film.
Ayushmann’s ‘Andhadhun’ co-stars Manav Vij, Tabu, and other celebrities like Divya Dutta, Nakuul Mehta and Kubbra Sait paid their last tribute to the late action director in comment section.
Parvez Khan started his career by assisting action director Akbar Bakshi in films like Akshay Kumar’s ‘Khiladi’ (1992), Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Baazigar’ (1993), and Bobby Deol-starrer ‘Soldier’ in 1998.
It was with Shimit Amin’s ‘Ab Tak Chhappan’ in 2004 that he started working independently and went on to have a long-standing collaboration with filmmaker Sriram Raghavan in films like ‘Johnny Gaddaar’ (2007), Saif Ali Khan-starrer ‘Agent Vinod’ in 2012 and ‘Badlapur’, featuring Varun Dhawan.
