Akshay Kumar loves his daredevil tag. But recently he tested it a tad too much.

During the shooting of Khiladi 786, Akshay leaped off a balcony forty five feet off the ground without a safety harness - and this in spite of a cable and harness being provided at the shoot.

Shot in Madh Island, the scene required Akshay to jump down to meet his co-star Asin face-to-face. And though stunt director Jai Singh insisted Akshay wear protective gear, the actor had to keep up his macho image.
