Katrina Kaif to do all action scenes herself in Dhoom:3, Knight And Day remake
While many actors ask for stunt doubles, Katrina has insisted that she will do all the action scenes herself in her upcoming films. "Katrina trained hard for the action sequences in ETT.

In the blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger (ETT) earlier this year, Katrina Kaif’s character, playing undercover agent Zoya, had a fair amount of jumping and kicking to do.
The actor decided to perform some of the stunts herself, and had earlier told us, “The stunts in ETT were exciting... I had not done something like this before. I have to admit that action is challenging.”
She has at least three major stunts in her next Yash Raj production, Dhoom:3, including an underwater fight scene. Post that, she starts shooting for the Hindi remake of Knight And Day (KND; 2010), with Hrithik Roshan as her co-star.
“Katrina trained hard for the action sequences in ETT. Now, she is looking to push the envelope and attempt more complex stunts. Besides, KND will have action scenes of Hollywood standard, which is novel for a Bollywood actor,” the source says.
This also means a fair bit of pre-shoot training for Katrina. The actor is presently learning acrobatics for Dhoom:3.
In the original KND, Cameron Diaz did a few of her stunts herself, and apparently used doubles for some. Katrina will, however, train so that she is able to pull off all the stunts herself. “Stunt co-ordinators are flying down next month to train her. The action sequences will be managed by a fleet of stunt co-ordinators — Robert Alonzo, David Rowden, Gregg Smrz and Ronn Surels.”
