Mumbai, Feb 29 (IANS) Veteran actor Anupam Kher's journey on his upcoming film 'Vijay 69' was filled with thrill and pain. The actor, who plays a 69 year old triathlon athlete in the upcoming film, shared that he learned swimming last year for the film.


He also shared that with just 3 days of shooting remaining on the film, he suffered an injury to his shoulder.


The actor spoke to the media at the Next on Netflix event on Thursday in Mumbai.


He told the media: "When I heard the story of this film, I didn't know how to swim. I learned swimming last year and it's one of my achievements like it's an achievement for my character."

'Vijay 69' produced by YRF entertainment, is directed by Akshay Roy. It will soon drop on Netflix as a part of collaboration between Indian studio giant YRF and Netflix.
