Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who didn’t know swimming at all, has finally learned how to swim for his upcoming suspense drama film Talaash. That’s not it, he even had to learn underwater swimming, which was a far more difficult challenge for the actor.
Aamir, who plays inspector Shekhawat, will be seen doing a shot of an underwater sequence which required him to shoot the underwater scene extensively over five days in London at Pinewood Studios.
Undoubtedly, swimming is something that takes a lot of time, it requires hardcore practice and dedication towards learning something completely new.
Director Reema Kagti who was present during Aamir Khan’s training was quite impressed. “Aamir I really have to tell, I’m very impressed with your swimming”
In fact the entire crew was surprised to see that Aamir had picked up the swimming so soon. Aamir Khan’s trainer David helped him throughout the learning process while he learned primary swimming from Mickey Mehta.
Aamir Khan says “Actually Dave is helping me prepare under water sequence, he is helping me with breathing exercises which increases my lung power and allows me to stay under water for longer.”
Talaash releases in UK cinemas on 30th November 2012.
