He survived deep sea dives and sharks while shooting for Blue, but Akshay Kumar ended up hurting himself while filming a scene in a swimming pool at the Goregaon Sports Complex for director Sajid Khan’s film Housefull on Wednesday. It happened that an overenthusiastic Akshay dived into the seven-feet-deep pool without closing his nose, as a result of which water entered his ears and injured his right eardrum. The actor felt the pain immediately and emerged out of the pool. Though director Sajid Khan offered to cancel the shoot, Akshay insisted on finishing his day’s work despite his pain. At last, when the shoot ended late in the night, producer Sajid Nadiadwala took Akshay to Kokilaben Ambani hospital where the doctors treated Akki’s ear and advised him complete rest for a few days. But complete bed rest may not be possible for the daredevil star as he has to shoot for another film titled ‘Khatta Meetha’ from today.
