Recently, Akshay Kumar shot for an underwater sequence for Nagesh Kukunoor’s 8 x 10. Akki is known for his daredevil ways when it comes to performing stunts. The sequence — one of its kind in Bollywood, apparently —required Akshay, tied up with chains, to fight another actor underwater. Obviously, Akshay wouldn’t let anybody convince him to use a body double or a stuntman. He promptly went to Bangkok and did a special course. Akshay plays a superhero without supernatural powers in the film. What he has proved, be it an ad film or feature film, is he likes to be in control.
