Aditya completed a risky stunt on top of the 21st floor without any body double for his film 'Aashiqui 2'

In his upcoming romance saga, Aditya Roy Kapoor may look like just another mushy actor, but buzz is that he recently performed a rather risky stunt for the film.

Joining the bandwagons of actors who are rejecting body doubles to dot heir own stunts, Aditya apparently agreed to stand on the railing of a 21st floor balcony, that too without a safety harness.

A source says, “It was a very tall tower in Cape Town and even director Mohit Suri was sceptical about the act. Aditya has never done a risky stunt in the past, yet he refused to get a stuntman and did the scene himself.”

The source also cites another instance when Aditya decided to take the plunge, quite literally. “We were shooting a rain sequence and the outside temperature was at two degrees. The actor had to sit on the terrace with his shirt off and get drenched in the cold rain.

Though he was shivering in the end, he never once complained,” says the source.

Co-producer Bhushan Kumar says, “Nowadays newcomers are quite aggressive to prove themselves and Aditya also wanted to do the same and he did it with success.”
