Dharma Productions, the official production house of Yodha, shared a video today that showed how Sidharth faced challenges during his fight scene in the flight's restroom. In the video, Sidharth can be heard saying, “I have done my fair bit of a few action films in the past, but this is the first time I have fought inside a toilet (area).”

For the unfamiliar, Sidharth has worked in numerous action films in the past, including Shershaah (2021) and Aiyaary (2018).

Continuing further, Sidharth said, “I am not the shortest of men around me. So, in the scene, I and the other character (villain) are cramped up in an airplane toilet (area). I have long arms. So, if I stretch my arms, I could hit the wall. So, we were very crunched up when we were doing punches and doing our choreography.”

“As I was trying to portray a new style of action, I think we did a very interesting job. By keeping it commando, real and raw, (we saw) this character (of mine) does his action,” he concluded.
