Playing golf sends Nawaz to physiotherapist!

‘Perfection comes with a price’ and powerhouse performer Nawazuddin Siddiqui learnt it the hard way too. The actor who plays Ali – a small-time gangster who turns ace golfer – in Sohail Khan’s upcoming film ‘Freaky Ali’ has been wowing audiences with his perfect golfing stance in the trailer of the film.

According to an insider, long hours of practicing the game prior to the shoot actually left Nawaz with a severe body-ache. “But pain or no pain Nawaz did not let the shoot suffer even once,” says the source. When contacted, Nawaz admits visiting a physiotherapist post his grueling golfing sessions. “The role was such that it required the perfect body language and exact movements of a professional golfer. We didn’t want to bluff our way through those scenes, hence it was crucial that I practice my movements which I realized later was easier said than done.”

The actor who had a professional golfer help him on the sets too had started his sessions even before the film began. “The swings require a certain posture and rigorous body movements especially at the lower back. I ended up with severe back pain and had to consult a physiotherapist too. Henceforth we made it a point to do some warm up exercise before the shoot to avoid the pain” adds Nawaz.

‘Freaky Ali’ starring Nawazuddin, Arbaaz Khan & Amy Jackson is distributed by B4U Films and will release on 9th September.
