Bunty Aur Babli 2: Siddhant Chaturvedi talks about overcoming his hydrophobia

Sidhhant Chaturvedi will be seen playing ‘Bunty’ in the upcoming movie. He opens up about his hydrophobia and his journey to overcome it.

Siddhant Chaturvedi debuted as MC Sher in the popular movie “Gully Boy”. He will be seen next in the movie “Bunty Aur Babli 2”. The latter employs a comedic genre, however, it has not been a walk in the park for Sidhhant. While filming the romance track ‘Luv Ju’ in the upcoming movie with newbie Sharvari, Siddhant who portrays the new ‘Bunty’ recently claimed that he conquered hydrophobia.

While talking about hydrophobia, the actor stated, “Actually no one knows that I’m hydrophobic! So, when I was told that ‘Luv Ju’ will have a sequence where Sharvari and I have to shoot underwater, I got very scared. But, as I have learned from my parents, if you do have a phobia or a fear, you have to address it and win over it.”


He added, “Despite my fear to enter the water, I remember going for swimming lessons before I shot ‘Luv Ju’. I had to do this for many days and first learn swimming (sic). Slowly, I felt more confident that I could do the underwater sequence.”

“I kept going for swimming training and when the day to shoot this sequence finally arrived, I was fully ready. Not only did I pull this sequence off without feeling afraid, but I also lip-synced underwater! It’s a big victory for me as I overcame my childhood fear”, he concluded.
