Jiah Khan matches Aamir kick for kick in ‘Ghajini’May 10th, 2008 - 11:07 am ICT by admin

Mumbai, May 10 (IANS) While Deepika Padukone is busy matching Akshay Kumar’s kicks and somersaults in Bangkok for “Chandni Chowk To China”, Jiah Khan has in Hyderabad done stunts to equal none other than Aamir Khan. Though thankfully the “Nishabd” fame actress hasn’t had any mishaps yet, her lithe stunts in A.R. Murugadoss’ “Ghajini” are every bit as heart-in-the-mouth as Aamir’s.
Jiah is reluctant to talk about it. She said: “I can’t! I’m not allowed to. But, yes, I’ve done a lot of action scenes in ‘Ghajini’. They’ve been extremely unnerving.”
The action sequences require Jiah to match Aamir kick for kick.
“And they are one reason I had to lose weight,” she admitted having returned from Hyderabad where the film was being shot.
“The schedules won’t suffer because of Aamir’s accident at all. We resume in the middle of May as per schedule.” Aamir injured his hamstring muscle twice on the sets of the film. He is on bed rest.
On Tuesday, Jiah started shooting in Mumbai for Ken Ghosh’s film with Shahid Kapur. “That’s the film I’m not supposed to do,” she joked.
Rumours are rife that she sent over-friendly messages to Shahid.
But she said: “I’ve never sent SMSs to people in the industry beyond work. I’m so new to all this manipulation, scheming and negativity. I’m just so happy to be doing two films like ‘Ghajini’ and Ken Ghosh’s film where I’ve completely different roles.”
