Becomes the first actor to do a flyboarding stunt in his film

Hrithik Roshan has performed several crazy stunts in his upcoming Bang Bang, something that's evident from the recently released promo. But what really catches our eye is one where Duggu emerges from the water on a rather unusual contraption.

What it is, is a water jetpack called a flyboard. It looks like a small snowboard attached to a hose and can propel riders 45 feet in the air. It is used to perform a sport called flyboarding that has gained popularity in the West. Celebrities have taken to it and Leonardo Dicaprio was spotted testing out the device last year while on a holiday to Ibiza.

It is, however, the first time that something like this has been used in Bollywood or Hollywood.

What is a Flyboard
A board developed by French Jet Ski Racing champion Frank Zapata in 2011. A Flyboard rider stands on a board connected by a long hose to a watercraft. Water is forced under pressure to a pair of boots with jet nozzles underneath which provide thrust for the rider to fly up in the air or to dive headlong through the water.
