Actor Sonu Sood, a fitness freak, will bring a touch of heroism to the opening ceremony of the 49th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) with a one-of-its-kind tribute to Hindi cinema’s iconic action stars.
Sood will perform to songs of Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar, among others, at the ceremony today. The act will also see Sood perform various stunts on stage.
The actor found the concept unique. In a statement to IANS, he said, “Having learned from these iconic action heroes all these years, I thought it’s a great way to give them tribute by performing on their hit songs. It’s not like the other dance performances as I will be executing some action stunts also on stage.”
Besides performing on chartbusters, including from his own Dabangg (2010) and Yamla Pagla Deewana (2011), the actor will perform various popular dialogues.
