The makers of upcoming mythological show Nagarjuna-Ek Yoddha are doing everything they can to make it a grand affair. The show has larger-than-life action sequences as its main attraction. Bollywood stunt director Amar Shetty is now on board to train actors Nikitin Dheer, Chetan Hansraj, Mrunal Jain and Anshuman Malhotra.

Nikitin, who is the leading actor for the show, has previously played a baddie in movies like Jodhaa Akbar, Chennai Express and Dabangg 2. Since the actor is supposed to perform most of the stunts, he is currently training in mixed martial arts and kickboxing every day under the watchful eyes of Amar. Nikitin says, “I enjoy taking up challenging action sequences — it gives me an adrenalin rush. With Amar, on board, performing stunts is challenging, but also fun. He makes you perform stunts that you never thought you could do. I already have a few scars on my body but I am not complaining.” Anshuman Malhotra says, “This is the first time I am doing action sequences. I am finding it quite challenging. Can you believe that I am pulling off stunts opposite a well-built guy like Nikitin All this is possible because of our amazing coach Amar. He makes sure we deliver.”
