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.
