“It’s a chase sequence designed by Hollywood stunt director, Craig Macrae, and the Khiladi was injured in the midst of this shoot. Over Rs 15 crore are invested in this particular sequence and taking a break on shoot here would result in work coming to standstill and also cause some monetary losses to the producers,” the source informed, adding further “Akshay has always been a producer friendly actor and hence decided to continue with the shoot even with an injured knee. He is doing all that he can for the film, the entire production unit as also his co-star, Tiger Shroff, is proud to see the kind of dedication Akshay has for his work.”
