Akshay Kumar is known for doing his stunts, no-matter the difficulty level. But this time, he pushed his luck too far.

Talking to Daily Bhaskar, a source said while doing the fire hoop stunt for the "Tung Tung Baje" song from "Singh is Bliing", his leg caught fire.

"Akshay sir speaks volumes of professionalism. Whenever it comes to doing stunts, he always prefers doing it himself and not using a body double. So while jumping from the fired Hulaloop, Akshay sir's leg caught fire. Immediate actions were taken to put the fire off. Even after the accident, Akshay sir was adamant to perform the stunt again," the insider elaborated.

Filmmaker Ashvini Yardi told The Times of India how the superstar kept his calm, didn't panic and quickly went on to take the next shot.

If this sounds unreal, Akshay's account of the injuries he sustained on the sets of "Brothers" is unimaginable.

He reportedly said he walked out of the sets with abdominal injuries but the injury marks needed to look real and hence the punches didn't matter at all after a while.
