A bit too involved in enacting a running sequence for Anjaana Anjaani, Ranbir didn't notice that Priyanka had fallen and hurt her head and leg very badly, says a media report.
The shooting was for the film Anjaana Anjaani. Clueless, that while shooting he was running hand in hand with Priyanka Chopra, who had long tripped, fallen and hurt herself, Ranbir continued acting. Only later did he realise that Priyanka, who had stopped running with him a while ago, was actually lying midway on the ground with a bleeding leg and an angry look on her face, we presume.
Obviously, Ranbir was caught up, either with acting or something we're not aware of. Otherwise, such things are unheard of in the industry. Sure enough, the actor was seen apologising profusely to Priyanka later.
Our source from the unit says, “Ranbir and Priyanka were shooting for a scene where they were trying to get away from a situation. Priyanka was wearing high heels and running. Ranbir got involved in the scene and with increased speed, started pulling her, when she suddenly tripped and fell. On turning around later, he saw that Priyanka had fallen down and her leg was bleeding. He obviously went out of his way to make her feel comfortable after that.”
Director Siddharth Anand too was witness to this incident and in his version there is an added staircase. He says, “They were running holding hands and there was a corridor and steps. Ranbir jumped from the corridor without realising that Priyanka had missed the steps and fallen down. Her head hit on the duct of the wall and she was badly injured. When Ranbir went up to her Priyanka got up and said she was fine. But we asked her to rest. Thankfully, some medicos on the sets attended to her in time.”
Siddharth is far from playing the blame game and says, “Ranbir was very apologetic about the whole thing. Accidents happen on the sets all the time. We just re-shot the scene.” Hopefully, Ranbir wasn't too busy looking at Priyanka this time.
