Ajith Kumar's car stunt video in Azerbaijan for Vidaa Muyarchi breaks internet

Thala Ajith is an actor who is interested in doing scenes involving car and bike chases. In May last year, Ajith announced the launch of his own motorcycle touring company — AK Moto Ride.

A traveller himself, the actor went on several bike trips earlier. Inspired by him, Malayalam actor Manju Warrier also learnt to ride a bike and accompanied Ajith and his team on a bike journey.

The Tamil star hero is now on a road trip in Madhya Pradesh.

On Thursday, 4 April, Lyca Productions (which is bankrolling Ahith’s upcoming movie Vidaa Muyarchi) released three videos showcasing a fearless car stunt sequence by the actor. The scene was shot in November 2023 in Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijan schedule was wrapped up in January.

One of the videos, shot from a camera installed in the car’s dashboard, shows Ajith driving a car in the Fast and Furious style with Arav tied up in the passenger seat. After some seconds, the vehicle topples but the duo escapes unhurt.

The two other videos, including a drone shot, showcase the car stunt from other angles.

In the end, as the car overturns, the film crew rush towards the vehicle to get the actors to safety.

Sharing the car stunt videos on X, Lyca Productions wrote” “Bravery knows no bounds! Witness Ajith Kumar’s fearless dedication as he takes on a daring stunt sequence in #VidaaMuyarchi without any stunt double.”

Ajith’s manager Suresh Chandra also posted the video and wrote: “Vidaamuyarchi filming. November 2023.”
