John Abraham is one actor who prefers shooting all his action and stunt scenes by himself. There is a lot that goes on behind shooting stunt sequences. Back in 2016, John Abraham sustained life-altering injuries in his leg during the shoot of Force 2. John Abraham opened up about the time when doctors wanted to amputate his leg as he had gangrene.
In a recent interview, John said that his knee was hurt so badly that doctors wanted to amputate his leg straightaway. The doctors strongly suggested this as the actor had serious gangrene in his right leg following the stunt gone wrong. He added that a person should be very careful while doing action sequences and not have a false sense of bravado. John said, “Some stunts are very deadly. I remember during Force 2 I smashed my knee and I had to get three surgeries. I had gangrene in my right leg and the doctors wanted to amputate my leg. I said, ‘No, you can't do that.' But thanks to my surgeon in Bombay, Dr. Rajesh Maniar; he saved my knee.”
The sequence they were filming for Force 2 had the villain racing down a corridor with John, a RAW agent, running parallel, breaking through doors. He burst through 7 strong doors as the scene was being filmed in Hungary and they did not have a set designer to make softer artificial doors. John tripped on the handle of the last door and hurled towards the wall 6 feet away. He slammed his knee and immediately knew it was injured. The actor continued shooting not realizing that it would rupture his knee even more. His next stunt involving a zipline is where it went all wrong as when John's zipline was cut (as planned), he went swinging like a pendulum, crashed through a glass, bounced off a wall, rolled off the roof, and finally fell 20 feet down (not as planned). After visiting the hospital, he was told that they had to amputate his leg.
On the work front, John Abraham can be seen back in action in his latest release Attack. The action-drama featuring him as a super soldier, also stars Rakul Preet Singh, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Prakash Raj. Directed by Lakshya Raj Anand, the film is backed by Pen Studios, John's JA Entertainment, and Ajay Kapoor Productions.
