BTS footage of Samantha's action sequences from Yashoda out
Yashoda will hit the screens on November 11
Actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu, recently revealed that she has been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis. The actor disclosed her condition, while posting a picture of her dubbing for her upcoming film Yashoda. However, that did not stop Samantha from performing some action sequences for the film. The makers have now released the behind the scenes footage of the film where the actor is seen getting trained by action coordinator Yannick Ben.
The footage shows Ben demonstrating Samantha a few stunts before the actor performs it. “All the time we make sure the actor is safe, so we try to make sure that they perfect the choreography. First we train with the stunt performer to make sure they know the exact timings. Then we make the actor perform, once we know everything is safe,” said Ben.
