For her upcoming film I Love You, Rakul Preet Singh left no stone unturned to get into the skin of the character. For one of the scenes in the film, the actress was required to stay under water for two minutes 30 seconds and the prep that the actress did for the scene will blow your mind!
Talking about the training the actress said, “The film required me to be in a certain frame of mind to understand emotions deeply. On the whole, I did rigorous prep for a month of truly connecting with my emotions. On training for the underwater sequence, there was a scuba instructor named Zahaan Adenwala who trained me for underwater holding for two mins 30 secs that we were timing for. So I did a couple of sessions of that. Overall, one month everyday of connecting with the emotions and the physical training for the film.”
She further adds, “The biggest challenge to shoot the underwater sequence was that I was in water from 2pm in the afternoon to literally 4am in the morning and I was wet all day and the water was very cold. They were pouring hot water over me after every shot so that my body does not get extremely cold. Of course, you have burning eyes due to the chlorine in the water and that is also a challenge but I really enjoyed this challenge because it helped me push myself a lot.”
Rakul Preet Singh and Pavail Gulati starrer romantic thriller ‘I Love You’ is all set for its direct-to-digital premiere on 16th June on JioCinema. The film also stars Akshay Oberoi and Kiran Kumar.  
Presented by Jio Studios, 'I Love You' is an Athena & The Vermillion World Production, written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Nikhil Mahajan and produced by Jyoti Deshpande, Sunir Kheterpal and Gaurav Bose.
