Tied up in chains, actor Akshay Kumar went underwater for a sequence in his film Eight By Ten .

About a hundred years ago, the Hungarian-American conjurer and escapologist Houdini puzzled everyone with his remarkable feats. Houdini could extricate himself from ropes, chains and padlocks while in a sealed coffin, suspended in the air or dunked in a sea.




Bollywood star Akshay Kumar was seen doing something similar last week at a pool in Chembur where he was shooting the climax sequence of Nagesh Kukunoor 's psychological thriller 'Eight By Ten'.

Akshay was all tied up with chains when he went underwater without any breathing apparatus. It was an extremely tough scene for which Akshay took special training in Bangkok.

During the training Akki learned how to swim underwater without oxygen. A part of the training involves taking deep breaths for a minute before taking the plunge into water.

Akshay says it is a very difficult stunt that can affect one's health if not done properly.

But last week at Chembur, everything went fine when Akshay shot underwater.

'Eight By Ten' has Akshay playing a man with extraordinary psychic powers.

Percept Picture Company's head honcho, Shailendra Singh, says 'Eight By Ten' is the first movie of its kind for Hindi film industry.
