"It (stunts) is a difficult job. It is sad that out hard work doesn't get acknowledged. In all cars, my stunt men were sitting. When the stunt happens, my heart is in my mouth. We pray that everything goes well. It's easy to make fun, to show that cars are flying," said Rohit Shetty

Bollywood filmmaker Rohit Shetty said that it is very difficult to shoot action scene.
Rohit has directed Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan in Dilwale, which will release on December 18.
The team launched the trailer of the film in Mumbai on November 9.
"It (stunts) is a difficult job. It is sad that out hard work doesn't get acknowledged. In all cars, my stunt men were sitting. When the stunt happens, my heart is in my mouth. We pray that everything goes well. It's easy to make fun, to show that cars are flying. It is for entertainment. But it is a huge risk as far as entertainment is concerned," said Rohit.(Also Read: Shah Rukh Khan Makes a Dilwale Confession on Twitter)
Rohit has made films like Singham, Singham Returns and Chennai Express, which had several action scenes.
Shah Rukh and Kajol also said that safety measures have changed from what they were earlier.
"Safety measures have changed from what they were earlier to what it is today. We are much safer. I feel Rohit's set is the safest," said Kajol.
"There are around nine action scenes in the film. Anything can go wrong in spite of taking extreme safety measures. But Rohit's team is the safest to do action. You feel encouraged," said Shah Rukh.
