Peter Hein is one the established stunt artists in Indian cinema. But he deeply regrets missing ace filmmaker Shankar’s magnum-opus Ai due to prior commitments with other films. He has earlier worked with Shankar in three consecutive films Anniyan, Sivaji and Endhiran. His daredevil stunts and its spectacular staging left everyone in awe and he received wide accolades for the film.
“I broke 19 bones during the shooting of Endhiran and food had to be injected through the hip part of the body as I couldn’t open my mouth and use my hands,” reveals Peter Hein. On missing Ai, “Shankar gives people the freedom to explore and come up with their best. He it was who catapulted my career to another level,” regrets Peter Hein who is currently working on SS Rajamouli epic period flick Baahubali in Tollywood.
