Ajith, who was appreciated for his dare-devil stunts in "Arrambam", is reportedly doing some risky stunt sequences in his upcoming film "Veeram."

The actor recently performed a train stunt sequence that gave shivers to the film's director "Siruthai" Siva. However, the director was happy once the shot came out really well.

"Even stunt masters don't take such risks. We shot this sequence at a place where safety precautions weren't feasible. I have worked in 14 films as a cinematographer and 5 films as a director and I was really scared for the first time while filming this scene," Siva was quoted as saying by Behindwoods.

"With a deep bridge below, Ajith was literally flirting with fatal danger but insisted that I film the sequence the way I had planned, while narrating the script to him. I literally shivered while telling 'Start Action' for this scene but we successfully canned 2 minutes of footage from this terrific sequence," he added.

Ajith injured himself while shooting for a stunt sequence in "Arrambam." The actor will have to undergo a surgery to treat the injury. Despite his past experience, "Thala" (Fans refer Ajith by this name) decided to take risks for "Veeram."  The actor will be undergoing the surgery after wrapping up for his portions for "Veeram."

The film revolves around Ajith and his four brothers played by Vidarth, Bala, Munish and Suhail. Tamannah, Nassar and Santhanam appear in pivotal roles in the film, which is set to hit the screens for Pongal in January 2014. According to reports "Veeram" is likely to release on 10 January, a few days ahead of Pongal festival.

The music launch is expected to happen on 7 December. The film's songs are composed by Devi Sri Prasad of "Singam" fame. Cinematography is handled by Vetri, while editing is done by Kasi Viswanathan. Bharathi Reddy is producing the film under Vijaya Productions banner.
