Although it isn’t unusual for advertisements to carry disclaimers dissuading people to attempt dangerous stunts at home, it is probably for the first time that a movie promo will be seen with such a warning. Due to its action-packed content, the Censor Board has asked the makers of upcoming film, Commando, to attach a disclaimer with every promo it releases.
The film, starring Vidyut Jammwal, features the actor performing some daredevil stunts. A source close to the film says, “Unlike other action films of actors such as Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn, Vidyut has done some dangerous sequence without the help of harnesses or cables. That’s why the Censor Board wants the makers to state that these stunts have been done by experts and shouldn’t be tried without supervision.”
In the movie, Vidyut plays the role of a secret agent and will also be seen flaunting his mixed martial arts skills.
Ask producer Vipul Shah about the request for a precautionary warning, and he says, “Commando has some over-the-top stunts, which must not be tried by anyone who is not a professional. We’ve been asked to put a disclaimer, and we have agreed to it.”
