Siddhant revealed he overcame hydrophobia while filming the romantic track. He said, “Actually no one knows that I’m hydrophobic! So, when I was told that Luv Ju will have a sequence where Sharvari and I have to shoot underwater, I got very scared. But, as I have learnt from my parents, if you do have a phobia or a fear, you have to address it and win over it.”
Talking about taking swimming lessons to shoot the underwater sequences, he said, “I kept going for swimming training and when the day to shoot this sequence finally arrived, I was fully ready. Not only did I pull this sequence off without feeling afraid, but I also lip synced underwater! It’s a big victory for me as I overcame my childhood fear.”
Bunty Aur Babli 2 also stars Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji as the original Bunty and Babli. The comedy film pits two sets of con-artists, from different generations, against each other as they try to prove who is the better con-couple.
