Lights, camera and heavy action on the sets of San’84 Justice

San 84 Justice, a film that revolves around turmoil entering lives of Sikh families who were tortured during PM Indira Gandhi’s assassination in 1984, has some heavy duty action happening on the sets. The scene is about a tussle between brothers Gurfateh played by Vipin Sharma and Ajit Singh played by Ashish Sahdev. In this scene they were informed by Manoj Bakshi (who played an important role in Bajrangi Bhaijaan) and plays Jaradhan in this film. He tells them that hundreds of rioters are killing Sikhs mercilessly and unexpectedly one of the brothers decides to go at the riot site to fetch something very important. The action starts immediately after this scene which is intense, emotionally charged and it took several takes to go around it as it involved a tussle with the tall and muscular Manoj Bakshi stopping the brothers from going out of their home.

Director Sandeep Rana and his team gave a lengthy and detailed briefing to the actors Manoj Bakshi, Vipin Sharma, Suparna Marwah and Ashish Sahdev on the intensity and finesse needed to pull off this scene as the action begins hereafter. One of the shots in this scene involved Manoj stopping Vipin physically, and since he is taller and hefty, he was being conscious not to come on very heavily. However, he was asked to put more force and intensity repeatedly by Sandeep, as a result Manoj practically froze the other actors so much that they could not move away an inch and the scene had to be reshot multiple times till the right intensity was achieved, it became tough for everyone

Once the scene was perfected the actors and the entire team had a good laugh about the varying force and action delivered by Manoj Bakshi at every take filmed for this scene.
