Akshay Kumar’s (above) discipline over stunts “marvelling”. Talking about one of the stunts in her latest release Jolly LLB 2, Sayani said: “Once I saw the stunt person do the stunt, I got very nervous. But I still wanted to do my stunts myself. I have a phobia of heights and when I had to jump off a 40-foot-high building, it was not pretty at all. While we were rehearsing, I had a very tough time to not contort my face or scream during the fall. Parvez Shaikh (action director) was trying to keep me calm and said ‘Don’t be scared’. I was like ‘I don’t want to be scared. But do I really have a choice?’”
That’s when her co-star Akshay offered help. “He gave me some simple tips which made it much simpler. I am grateful to him for being helpful, calm and such a master of stunts. His discipline over stunts is marvelling. Thanks to him, I could jump off the building with perfect calm as if I could do this in my sleep. Subhash sir (film director Subhash Kapoor), was very pleased as a result,” she added.
