Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone is on a spree to learn adventure sports. After sea diving, it's sky diving that's topping her list, says a DNA report.
The actor, who has taken to deep sea diving in a big way and is busy preparing herself to become a professionally trained deep sea diver, will also become a sky diver soon.
"Sky diving is the real adventure sport. Trust me, after deep sea diving, I will fly in the air. Both are a big adrenaline rush for me. I will take to sky diving later this year," Deepika says, laughing.
"Sea diving has been my dream for a long time and since now I can find time after my film shoot, I told myself why not go for it. I have always loved the sea and the idea of diving into it and exploring it and seeing fascinating colours and plants and fish inside it has always excited me. I have got myself a professional trainer and right now I'm just building my stamina to stay in the sea for a longer time. It is a difficult thing to master but I think I'm doing quite well," she says.
Deepika adds, "My goal is to become a professional deep sea diver. There have been a few things that I have really wanted to get in my life and this is one of them. I feel nothing you learn in life goes for a waste. Maybe I will get a film that involves me doing stunts in the ocean and then I will have no hesitation to take the plunge and do a better job than others. I believe in adding attributes to myself. It only helps in the long run."
Will you promote deep sea diving in India? Deepika replies, "Why not? I quite like the idea to open an academy. I can train people myself once I become a pro. Very few people in India are certified deep sea divers in India and so many are missing out on seeing and enjoying things that are not visible on the earth. I wish to motivate my friends and colleagues to take to it too."
