While shooting for the Holi song sequence in the upcoming film, Action Replayy, Aishwarya, her co-star Akshay Kumar and director Vipul Shah decided against using the 70-80 tankers of water that would be required for the shoot. “We decided to save the resource and send out the message that people should not waste water,” said Shah.
