As the Sanjay Dutt-starrer Bhoomi is all set to release on 22 September, the makers of the film have released a video of footage of the making of an underwater sequence in the film.

The video features Aditi Rao Hydari and Sharad Kelkar, who plays an antagonist in the film, under water while director Omung Kumar with his team of cameramen, all equipped in swimming gears, shoot the sequence.

The entire shoot happens in a swimming pool. Kelkar's appearance is blood-stained and beaten up; he is in a tattered state. Hydari is seen wearing a red bridal gown, with a stern face, appearing to drown in the water. We see red fabric floating under the pool, which makes for a stunning view of the entire sequence.

The entire shoot was done under the strict supervision of diving instructors who are seen telling the actors about safety precautions and gestures needed to shoot the sequence under water.

Bhoomi explores the relationship between a daughter, played by Hydari, and a father, portrayed by Dutt.

The film also stars Sidhant Gupta, Shekhar Suman and Sharad Kelkar. It is directed by Omung Kumar and co-produced by Bhushan and Krishan Kumar's T-Series Films and Kumar's Legend Studios.
