Daredevil Akshay studies for stunt

NEW DELHI: While shooting a scene in Singh is Kinng on the Gold Coast, actor Akshay Kumar had to Jet Ski in deep water but realised that he would not be allowed to do so without an official license. However, Akshay proved his worth and rose to the occasion.

“It takes three days to get a jet-ski license but Akshay explained the time constraints. He did a three-day course in 12 hours. He got up at 6 am and got his license by 7 pm,” reveals producer Vipul Shah.

“He had to give a written and a practical test. The action scene we have shot is one of the most expensive ones that Bollywood has ever seen and has been directed by Danny Baldwin,” he adds. Danny Baldwin is said to have worked with Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai and Michael Douglas in The Ghost and the Darkness.

“Going through a theory and practical exam was like going back to school,” laughs Akshay.
