It’s not often that you have someone as lovely as Minissha Lamba jump into a pool to save you. But Vinay Pathak had the honour.
Vinay Pathak is soon to have audiences laughing off their seats with his mad antics in the sequel to the comic hit Bheja Fry.
This time around the good hearted but not worldly-wise, tax inspector, Bharat Bhushan (Vinay Pathak) is back to fulfil his long cherished dream of becoming a singer. Eventually, Bhushan goes on to win the competition which also gifts him a free stay on a cruise ship.
While shooting on the five star cruise an interesting incident happened to take place-One of the scenes required Vinay to fall into a swimming pool and struggle to swim.
Now it so happens that the actor does not know how to swim, and as luck would have it, the lifeguard on the cruise had reported unwell. That’s when Minissha volunteered to be Vinay’s lifeguard and came in to save the day.
Knowing he is in safe hands, Vinay took the plunge!
Says a source “Vinay is petrified of water and did not know how to swim. The lifeguard wasn’t on duty and that made the situation worse. That’s when Minissha stepped in and volunteered to be Vinay’s lifeguard in an emergency situation. The team had a laugh and the scene was shot successfully.”
Mukul Deora’s Bheja Fry 2 is set to release this June 17th, 2011.
