It seems that something is surely wrong with the upcoming film Padmavati. In January 2017, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was badly attacked In Jaipur by members of the Rajput Karni Sena who stormed the film sets and vandalised equipment. Now, Ranveer Singh, who is playing the lead role in the historical drama, has injured himself on the head.
The mishap took place when the actor was shooting the climax of Padmavati in Mumbai, a source close to the actor said, adding that he sought medical aid and returned to shoot soon after. The incident took place at the film's set in Mumbai on Thursday, the source said.
"Ranveer hurt himself on the head while shooting for the film during a particular take but he was so engrossed in the performance that he did not realise it till cut was called. It was only after he started bleeding profusely from the head after 'cut' was called, did everyone realise that he was hurt badly.
"Ranveer received initial first aid on the set and was rushed immediately to a nearby hospital for immediate treatment. He completed the basic treatment and returned to the film's set to complete his portions of the shoot. Rather than let his injury slow him down or impact the shoot, Ranveer completed the day's work. He requires stitches on the head," added the source.
The actor will be see as Alauddin Khilji in the period drama, which also features Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. It is being directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
