Actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn, who finally shared the trailer of his upcoming film 'Bholaa', recalled doing an action stunt with megastar Amitabh Bachchan for the 1998 film 'Major Saab'.
On Monday, Amitabh revealed that he had an accident on the sets of 'Project K' and is facing difficulty in moving and breathing. As Ajay's latest offering 'Bholaa' is high on action, he was asked about the safety on set.
"Our job is difficult and easy also. Mr Bachchan, from where he started and later when he started at that point of time when he used to do action there were no mattresses, no safety measures, cables, he has done shots that one can't even imagine."
He added: "I remember him getting injured while shooting 'Major Saab' also, when he suggested to jump from 30 feet and I told him let's not do the shot it's very difficult. We both were suppose to jump. He insisted. He had an injury then also. It's that enthusiasm."

Ajay agrees that stunts are now much easier courtesy all the safety around the shoot sequences.
"But now I would say things are much easier. It's done with a lot of safety precautions. There are ambulances on set, doctors on set, paddings etc. It's became relatively easier. While we are aging, things are getting easier."
Devgn also said that he had to a maintain a "sensibility" and called it a "responsibility" about his fight sequence with a Trishul in 'Bholaa'. Talking about his fight sequence with a Trishul, a weapon used by lord by Shiva in Hindu mythology, Ajay said: "I think it was very interesting. It was a little difficult but new too. We had to design, execute and perform it."
"Had to maintain a sensibility and had a responsibility as I had a Trishul in my hand."
'Bholaa' is a remake of the Tamil film 'Kaithia' which released in 2019. 'Bholaa' is all set to release on March 30. It also stars Tabu, Deepak Dobriyal and Vineet Kumar.
