Actor Farhan Akhtar, who has often stood up for his colleagues and causes, recently showcased his brave side on the sets of one of his upcoming films. During a shooting schedule in Turkey, he jumped into the sea to save his co-star Ranveer Singh’s hairdresser, Darshan, who went for a swim but was dragged by a strong current.
Apart from sporting an athletic build, Farhan is also a great swimmer, which helped him save Darshan. “While he was being swept away, someone spotted his flaying arms and raised an alarm. Seeing the commotion, Farhan jumped into the sea without a second thought and pulled him back to safety,” says a source close to the actor.
“Everyone on the beach panicked as the current was very strong. However, Farhan is an excellent swimmer and managed to get to Darshan. It was actually Farhan’s timely act that saved the day. Once they were closer to the shore, everyone breathed a sigh of relief,” adds the source.
