2020 Wrap Up: Tiger Shroff to Vidyut Jammwal – 5 actors who took martial arts to a whole new level

It is quite common for our Bollywood superstars to have stunt doubles when it comes to dangerous action sequences as well as scenes which require a high amount of skill and expertise such as in a precisely choreographed fight sequence. Some actors, however, like doing their own stunts and shots like these and have trained in the martial arts and become quite adept themselves.

Few actors train in martial arts to stay fit, or disciplined, some to be able to ace their on-screen performance, either way, this is surely another ace up their sleeve. In 2020, these stars have stayed home amidst pandemic and yet inspired all their fans to keep themselves fit by practising martial arts.

Here are a few of our favourite superstars who have mastered this art:
