Suniel Shetty did his own stunts after being called ‘wooden material’ in the 90s

Suniel Shetty was interacting with the media at the launch of a fire safety products brand on Friday in Mumbai. Talking about doing stunts in his film, he said, “I never dreamt that I would end up doing dangerous stunts in films. I did it because even after the success of my first film, a particular critic, who was very powerful at that time called me 'wooden material' and he said that I should go back to my family's restaurant business. So, I took it up as a challenge. I told myself I needed to do something where I could be different."

The actor made his debut with the film Balwaan in the year 1992. He said, “I still remember that in my first film, I did a fire stunt where I was sitting on a bike near a swimming pool. I was really scared because it was unsafe but I did it because I had to prove to myself.”

Suniel Shetty will be returning to the screen after a gap of four years with the Kannada film Pehlwaan alongside South star Kichcha Sudeep. The film is scheduled to release on September 12 in Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, and Malayalam.
