More than a dozen girls surrounded Ranbir Kapoor inside a pool as the handsome actor splashed water and danced to the remix version of the title song from his upcoming film Wake Up Sid.The actor wasn’t flirting around in Deepika’s absence but was shooting for a song of the film directed by Ayan Mukherjee. Ironically, shooting the song in a pool with girls wasn’t fun for Ranbir because, believe it or not, he has a phobia of water.
The star is afraid of going anywhere close to swimming pools or big water bodies like lakes, rivers or seas.Ayan is quoted as saying, “Ranbir was scared of jumping into the water and he feels breathless when he’s in the pool.”The scene required Ranbir to jump into a pool with a group of young girls and dance.The song was Wake Up Sid Club mix and he had to shoot in the neck-deep water. But a good actor that Ranbir is, he never let it show that he was afraid of water.
Moreover, Ranbir had little time to relax because he had to finish the song’s shoot in a tight schedule before leaving for Bhopal to shoot for Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti.
