New Delhi: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, popularly known as ‘Khiladi Kumar', is famous for his combat skills and is even seen showcasing them in his various films.
Rather than going for a body double, the actor prefers doing the stunts himself.
However, being one's own stunt double can even turn out to be extremely harmful and this is what happened with ‘Khiladi Kumar' on the sets of his upcoming film ‘Singh Is Bliing'.
Akshay, who plays the role of a daredevil Sikh in the film, was told to do a scene which required him to jump through a fire ring.
While everything went fine during the rehearsals, it was during the final take that Akshay made an untimely jump.
Just after his mistimed jump through the fire ring, the actor was seen battling with the fire flames before the safety crew rushed to his rescue.
The entire incident was captured and uploaded on YouTube by Akshay's production house, Grazing Goat Pictures.
Although Akshay escaped the incident unscathed, it did give goosebumps to the entire unit.
Akshay is currently busy shooting for ‘Singh Is Bliing' which is helmed by Prabhudeva. The film will also feature Amy Jackson and Kay Kay Menon in key roles and is slated to hit theatres on October 2, 2015.
