Whoever thought that Ali Zafar is too much of a chocolate boy to don an action avatar needs to think again

Turns out the Pakistani actor-singer refused to use a body double for a considerably dangerous stunt for an ad. And Nargis Fakhri amazed the ad-makers by bravely staying pillion seated for this particular shot.

While shooting for the video, Ali and Nargis were slated for a bike scene in which the vehicle was supposed to take a flight from a significant height. Even though the duo was offered an alternative of stuntmen as is the norm in the industry to perform the required daredevilry, they decided to go ahead without any fear of consequence.

Our source says, “Ali is passionate about bikes and Nargis is an action freak. Luckily enough, the shot was okayed in the first shot itself and thankfully, none of the two was injured.”

The crewmembers ended up giving them a round of applause. “Both Ali and Nargis were shown the stunt by the stunt doubles and were told that certain portions of it needed to be shot for their close-ups and for the rest, the stunt doubles would manage. However, Ali surprised everyone by insisting to do the deed on his own. To make matters more exciting, even Nargis showed her adrenaline junkie side,” sums up the source.
