To make things worse the day the preparations were made and scene was to be shot the production found out that the tide was high and that it made the stunt even more risky than it already was.
Reveals a source, "The scene shot with the camera in the chopper above involved Akshay performing underwater stunts. After making all the preparations with the camera, chopper and lighting we found out that it's a high tide day and that it was very risky for Akshay to do the stunt"
But knowing Akshay Kumar and the daredevil that he is by now we know what transcended.
"Ultimately Akshay refused to postpone the scene and performed it in spite of it being dangerous and did it quite brilliantly in fact. Everyone applauded his bravery," adds the source.
