Saiyami Kher, who has always loved the ocean, discovered the magic beneath the surface when she took her first breath underwater in Thailand in 2009. The actor recently returned to the Southeast Asian country for a vacation and decided to dive for the first time in a long time. Kher is a certified diver who has previously dived in Lakshadweep, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Thailand, Bali, and Turkey.
The actor says, “The first time I went diving it was an experience very difficult to articulate. I never realised how caught up I’ve been in my own world. Being underwater changed something inside me. I realised that on the same planet we inhabit, there’s an entire world that we know nothing of! And that we humans are only tiny little ants in the grand scheme of things. It’s unbelievably humbling. It’s my go to place to destress, to introspect and to come back refreshed. I am very protective of the ocean and it feels very sad to see the ocean polluted. So I try my best to try and protect it.”
Meanwhile on the work front, Saiyami Kher will be seen alongside Abhishek Bachchan in an R.Balki directorial sports drama, called ‘Ghoomer’.
