There’s no doubt that Bollywood films have provided us with good action sequences over the years, despite the popular opinion. Take Uri: The Surgical Strike, for instance. But barring few exceptions, we’ve also been loaded with action scenes that defied all laws of science and, well, logic.


From Salman Khan’s shirt ripping off by itself to a car floating in the air via parachutes, we’ve been sold literally anything in the name of action. Take a look:

1. Ajay Devgn shoots the car. It somersaults in the air. He’s somehow able to pull the driver out of the car while it’s suspended mid-air above him
