Akshay Kumar A renowned Hollywood stunt choreographer believes action stunts in Bollywood movies are comparable to the ones in Hollywood movies.

"Action stunts in Bollywood movies are impressive. They are comparable even to Hollywood ones. They are as good as 'Spiderman' or 'Superman'," says Colin Handley.

He says that the recent Akshay Kumar blockbuster Singh is Kinng has had one of the best action stunts he has ever seen in Indian movies.




He also praised Hrithik Roshan starrer Krrish .

"I saw Krrish two years ago. It was the best stunts the Indians had at that point of time. They had roped in international stunt artist to work and the result was outstanding," he added.

Colin has worked with famous action stars such as Arnold, Stallone, Van Damme, among others. He was the stunt choreographer in the American soap 'Baywatch'. He now runs the Stunt Academy in Australia.

He was in the capital recently to conduct a workshop by the Asian Academy of Film and Television, Noida.

Addressing media at the institute, he also hinted at his plans to "try and break into Bollywood" and work with Indian actors.

While praising Bollywood stuntmen, he said that they have lot of talent in them.

"Indians are also now using all the latest technology available to make films. But in India, the history of stunts is not very long. We in Hollywood have been doing stunts for a very long time. And so, we have better sound effects," he says.

Indian movies, the sound effects in action sequences are not good. It often looks out of place," he adds. While outlining the role of stuntmen in action movies, he said, "It is because of the stuntmen that Arnold is a big star in Hollywood today and he realizes the role of stuntmen.
