In ready-to-release "Heyy Babyy", Riteish Deshmukh plays Eddy the Teddy who organises kids' parties and gets beaten up by children in true "Matrix" style.

And guess who is the leader of the brat pack? None other than producer Sajid Nadiadwala's son Subhaan.

Said director Sajid Khan: "This funny sequence is something never done in Bollywood so far.

"The kids had to be literally trained in gymnastics and action sequences. Action director Mahendra Verma has trained all these children including Subhaan to perform the stunts. The kids were harnessed to wires to get a 'Matrix' style action sequence," he said.

"The kids will just love this scene."

In this film, Riteish plays a Maharashtrian character called Tanmay Joglekar.

"He is called Eddy the Teddy since he is a party organiser for kids. He had to wear a 20-kg furry outfit for the sequence. Riteish's character is gonna be a big hit with the kids," Khan said.

Riteish was also excited about the role.

"For this particular sequence, luckily I had to wear a padded costume, though it was too strenuous. But it lessened the blow from the kids. It was simply hilarious," he said.

Subaan has earlier acted in "Main Hoo Na" and "Mujhse Shaadi Karogi". Incidentally, both films were super hits. So he may turn out to be Khan's lucky mascot in "Heyy Babyy".

Nadiadwala says he loves to see his son perform on screen.

"The scene has 100 children and they are in a mood to beat up Riteish. Subhaan is the leader of the brat pack.

"Whenever there is a sequence in films about children, I would love to have Subhaan in it. Though he is very young, he will gain experience and fond memories of the same when he grows up. Even my wife Wardha seems excited to see him perform," Nadiadwala.

Also starring Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan and Vidya Balan, the film is about three carefree bachelors whose lives turn topsy-turvy after a baby girl lands up on their doorstep. The movie is set for release Aug 24.
