Actor Vicky Kaushal has reportedly broken his cheekbone while shooting an action sequence for his as-yet-untitled horror film in Gujarat, reported The Indian Express. The Sanju actor had to get 13 stitches.
Vicky had been shooting inside a ship for the Bhanu Pratap Singh directorial, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar. According to Mumbai Mirror, the night sequence involved him opening a door and running but unfortunately, the door fell on him and he got injured.
“Vicky was rushed to a local hospital by the crew and flown to Mumbai on Friday morning,” the report quoted a source as saying. The tabloid further reported that the Uri star will consult a doctor again now that he is back in Mumbai.
Bhanu makes his directorial debut with the yet-to-be-titled film. He was earlier Shashank Khaitan’s assistant director. Bhumi and Vicky will also be seen together in Karan Johar’s period epic Takht, alongside Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Janhvi Kapoor.
Vicky recently headlined the box office hit Uri: The Surgical Strike. The film is his biggest hit so far and one of the highest grossers of 2019. Bhumi, on the other hand, is currently shooting for producer Anurag Kashyap’s Saand Ki Aankh in Uttar Pradesh. The film also stars Vineet Kumar Singh and Taapsee Pannu and is directed by Tushar Hiranandani.
