South actress Isha Talwar and Saif Ali Khan are seen engaging in underwater kissing in the trailer of Kaalakaandi. Although the scene looks extremely steamy, the actress apparently had to undergo much training to pull it off.

The trailer showed a glimpse of Saif and Isha's underwater smooch. While Saif being a good swimmer could shoot the scene with much ease, it wasn't the same for Isha.

According to Mid-Day, the beautiful actress had to undergo training in diving to be able to do the underwater kissing scene. Shooting the scene was also a big task as both the actors had to stay under water for hours along with the camera crew.

Saif and Isha had to breathe from oxygen cylinders in between takes, and try hard to match the coordination, the report added. However, they were able to pull off the shot in just three takes.

Directed by Akshat Verma, Kaalakaandi is a dark comedy starring Saif, Vijay Raaz, Deepak Dobriyal, Shobita Dhulipala, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Isha Talwar, Shenaz Treasurywala, Nary Singh and Akshay Oberoi.

While Saif sports a unique look in the movie, he was actually not the first choice for the role but Fawad Khan. The director himself had revealed this.

"Fawad Khan was supposed to be one of the actors we talked to when the project was with UTV. It was around 2013... He was going to play the role Saif plays. But ultimately everything happens for a reason and for the best. No one could have done the role better than Saif," Akshat had said in an interview.

The trailer showed some bold sex scenes, and also a lot of abuses are used in the movie. Kaalakaandi was stuck due to issues with censor for a long time, but now the movie is set to be released on January 12.
