The fight scene features Vijay Varma vs Jaideep Ahlawat
While audiences could not stop praising Jaane Jaan enough already, Vijay Varma has now shared a video of him prepping for his role of Karan. The actor took martial arts training for the same, in order to prepare for an important fight sequence in the film. The fight, of course, is the one between him and Jaideep Ahlawat’s Naren. Vijay shared a clip to show how practice transformed into the scene.
At the beginning of the video, Vijay is seen struggling. This is especially in terms of keeping up with the kind of strength the sport requires. He does handstand but hilariously fails at that too. However, with time, he develops the strength required through dumbbells and masters the art, to the extent that he can defend himself in any stance. Cut to the scene between Karan and Naren, where they were both fiercely competitive when it came to martial arts. The end of the video is something you can expect, especially if you have seen the film already.
The team behind it all
Vijay was trained by action director Prateek Parmar. He took guidance on diet and nutrition for the role from Rutuja Diwekar. Ivan Fernandes trained him for the scene and he also had his physiotherapist Arun a call away.
