Akki takes Lara to a Deep Dangerous Dive
If Lara's getting accolades for her underwater stunts in Blue then apart from Lara one more person deserves the credit and that's Mr Khiladi, Akshay Kumar. "Well he was the one who recommended my name for Blue," said Lara.
Being apprehensive about water stunts earlier Lara revealed that she was not really happy with the idea of diving 70 feet with sharks. Akki was confident that only Lara could play that role. She reveals, "I got a call from Akshay who told me, 'take a swimming lesson if you don't like it then say no to the movie but take one swimming lesson and see how it goes.' He has this favorite dialogue - Tu nahi toh kaun karega - and he knows that gets me every single time."
Lara informs that after a three month training she got certified as a diver. "I must say that as an actress in the industry very few times you get anything that really challenges you in a role including something that is physically challenging and I am extremely lucky on that part." She signs off.
