Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Sonu Sood (right), who will soon start shoot­ing for his up­com­ing re­gional pro­ject, is set to start his mar­tial arts train­ing in or­der to con­vinc­ingly play his char­ac­ter in the movie.

A source says, “Sonu will be seen in an ac­tion avatar in an un­ti­tled South movie. He will be un­der­go­ing in­tense train­ing for seven weeks, learn­ing two dif­fer­ent mar­tial arts form – Krav Maga and Jiu-jitsu, to pre­pare for his role. Most prob­a­bly, the Los An­ge­les- based trainer Roy El­ghanayan will be train­ing Sonu,” adding, “Ini­tially, he wasn’t re­quired to train in­tensely for his role but since the mak­ers added more fight se­quences, Sonu opted to get trained, as he wants the ac­tion scenes to look real.”

Sonu, who hopes to raise the bar in terms of ac­tion with this movie, says, “This isn’t just about fight­ing and throw­ing kicks and punches, ev­ery­thing has to look real and con­vinc­ing on-screen. I work re­ally hard on ev­ery char­ac­ter and do ev­ery­thing in or­der to make it look au­then­tic. Sim­i­larly, this role also re­quired me to train in­tensely and I’m look­ing for­ward to learn­ing Krav Maga and Jiu-jitsu.”
