Meanwhile, her husband Dhanush lauded her step by tweeting: “Aishwaryaa, very well done. Hope it happens.” Earlier, Akshay Kumar , who is also known as the action hero in Bollywood , in regards to stuntmen and their risky job, had expressed that there should be an insurance for them.
He said, “Safety is not great here (in Bollywood). Now finally, we have ambulance and doctors on the sets for the stuntmen and the cast and crew. (However) it’s surprising that there are no insurance for stuntmen in Bollywood, so we are all trying to get an insurance done for stuntmen.”
