Buzz is out that the hunk handsome Rana Daggubati has done the action sequences himself without using any body double for his upcoming film 'Ghazi.

While Rana is essaying the role of a Naval officer Lt.Commander Arjun Varma of Indian Navy who remained underwater for 18 days, he will be seen performing some underwater action which is very different from what the actor has done in the past. Rana, who is a certified diver didn't require any underwater lessons for the film, wherein the actor shot war sequences himself without any help or any body doubles.

Rana met naval officers especially those on board on the indian ship as a part of his preparation for the role.

Rana says, "The film has some underwater action sequences that we were doing for the first time. These stunts were shot over 12 days with all necessary precautions. While one part was shot in an Olympic size swimming pool, a lot of the underwater stunts were shot in the oceans off the coast of Vizag. It was not so simple because we didn't know what we would encounter. We had to look out for sudden water currents and for pieces of metal. To shoot such scenes one has to be trained specially. I am a certified deep sea diver with a professional diving license, but it has been a while since I did my last dive. I had to do a few rehearsal rounds before I started the shoot."

The film is said to be based on the true events of a mysterious sinking of PNS Ghazi during the Indo-Pak 1971 war.

It will hit the screens in Telugu, Hindi and Tamil on Feb 17th. Chiranjeevi is the one giving voice-over for the Telugu version, while it is Amitabh and Suriya for the Hindi and Tamil versions, respectively.
