Akshay trains in Parkour
Akshay Oberoi (above) has been shooting for his Indo-Brit film, and he has been asked to undergo training in parkour.
According to a source, “In the film, the actor will be seen doing some chase sequences in narrow lanes. Instead of using a body-double for the film, the makers have asked Akshay to train in the discipline that uses body movement without any aids for jumping over obstacles, and running.
And the actor has been rigorously training in the discipline, also because he feels it helps him stay fit. “Yes, I have been training in Parkour. While it will help my character in the film, I also feel that running is the best form of workout, and Parkour takes it to another level and helps make your body and mind agile. So I am taking it up seriously, for now at least,” he says.
