Mumbai: Actors Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor remained underwater for seven hours to shoot a romantic track for their upcoming film `Ek Villain`.

For the song `Galliyan`, both Sidharth and Shraddha stayed underwater in Mauritius and took just a few breaks.

They took rigorous lessons in Mumbai before taking the plunge, the makers said in a statement here.

The song track will release this week.

In real life, Shraddha is a trained diver and Sidharth is a water enthusiast, who looks forward to becoming a certified scuba diver soon.

Directed by Mohit Suri, `Ek Villain` also stars Riteish Deshmukh and Kamaal R Khan and is scheduled to release in June this year.
