Actress Sonal Chauhan was a hydrophobic as a child, but she has overcome her fear of water by learning how to swim for her next film “3G”, currently being shot in Fiji.
As part of her preparation for her character, Sonal has completed her swimming training and is all set to take on scuba diving as well. Being a non-swimmer, she underwent a strict training routine.
“What’s ironic is the fact that Sonal was hydrophobic ever since she was a child and would avoid stepping into the water. She didn’t want a stunt double to do any of her scenes and thus decided to take her fear head on,” said a source.
“She started the initial bit of training with a world-renowned scuba training instructor and will be completing the remainder of her training in Fiji. She’s totally committed to making this work for her and her character,” the source added.
“3G” also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh.
