Valimai stunt

Meanwhile, Ajith's thrilling bike stunt in Vallimai is creating a rage among youngsters. The actor has performed most of his stunts without a body double under the supervision of trained professionals. However, the actor's doctor has advised fans against imitating his stunts.

In an interview to a leading daily, orthopaedic surgeon Naresh Padmanabhan, who has been attending the actor for years, revealed that the Veeram star constantly worries about his fans imitating his stunts.

The doctor also revealed that the actor injured himself multiple times during the shoot and in the past, he was close to paralysis following injuries. "He wanted to convey a positive message through his films. The message is that you can get up again even when you fall," he added.
