Hollywood stunt artist Serge Crozon Crazin, who has worked in
films like "Casino Royale" and "300: Rise of an Empire", says working in
forthcoming Tamil film "Vivegam" was a memorable experience.
Crazin plays a key role in the film, due for release on August 24.
Talking about how he landed the role, Crazin said in a statement: "I attended an interview with director Siva and got this role. I was as highly impressed with director Siva's ability to visualize and to clearly know what he wants."
He considers it an "honour" to make his acting debut in Indian cinema with an "international movie like 'Vivegam'."
"Working in the film has been memorable, especially with Ajith sir. Only after I finished my portion and came back home, I discovered how big a star Ajith sir is and the tremendous celebrity status he enjoys. He was so simple and humble on the sets," he said.
Crazin said he was amazed by the "incredible stunts he (Ajith) pulled off".
"He did all action sequences sans a body double. He is such a perfectionist and hard worker. We both had a lot of interactions and I enjoyed every bit of it. Since I am a master of martial arts I loved my combat sequences," he said.
In "Vivegam", Ajith plays an Interpol agent and majority of the film has been shot across picturesque locations in Europe.
The film also stars Akshara Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal and Vivek Oberoi.
