Deepika Padukone enjoys performing stunts on her own. Her athletic proclivity runs in her family. She had two back-to-back double roles in Om Shanti Om and Chandni Chowk while she was quite young in her career. Deepika Padukone had the opportunity to practice martial arts in China.

She did them with zeal, and she was accompanied by Akshay Kumar. There were some situations in this 2009 film that were deemed too risky. However, she insisted on getting rid of the body double as well as the wirings that were supposed to keep the stunts safe.

Chandni Chowk is a market in Chandni Chowk, Delhi Nikhil Advani, the director of To China, remembers, “We believed some of the situations were just too hazardous. However, she insisted on getting rid of the body double as well as the wirings. Her athletic proclivity runs in her family. Then there was Akshay Kumar, who was a source of inspiration for her. So much on-screen action had been done by Akshay Kumar.

Deepika had never done something like this before. And she sailed right through it. She put in a lot of effort to achieve the stance and power in the action scenes.”

But nothing she performed in Chandni Chowk To China matched to her performance in Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiyaan. Peter Hein, who choreographed Rajinikanth’s stunts in Robot, choreographed Deepika’s 10-minute stunt in Kochadaiyaan. Deepika has been hankering to show off her athletic abilities on TV ever since.

In Siddharth Anand’s Pathan, she finally gets another chance to do her own stunts, ditching all body doubles and plunging into her own stunts. In Pathan, Shah Rukh Khan is also taking some risks.

“Once upon a time,” the actress said to me, “I come from a household where participation in sports is expected. My younger sister is a professional golfer. We’re the kind of people who prefer to be outside. It’s a dream come true for me to be able to perform my own stunts on TV.”

Deepika was last seen in Kabir Khan’s 83 as the wife of cricketer Kapil Dev.
