Big B names Prakash Jha Khatron Ka Khiladi

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has named Prakash Jha, the director of his forthcoming film Aarakshan, as Khatron ka Khiladi.

One would always find Prakash Jha with the film camera on an edge of a bridge without support, or on a crane 50 odd feet above the ground, amidst a chaotic crowd or under a running bulldozer to get a shot just right, sources close to the filmmaker said.

"Amitabh Bachchan who is working with Prakash Jha for the first time, has dubbed him as a Khatron Ka Khiladi," a source said.

According to insiders, Jha has escaped a few accidents during the shoot of the film.

"While taking a shot under the bulldozer, the driver didn`t hear the command to `stop` from the action director, almost running over Jha. Second time, he took off on a scooter by himself during a location shift, and had an accident," said one.

"Unfazed by the injury Jha remarked to his crew jokingly `you`ve made me fall, but don`t think I have fallen from grace`," they added.
