Sidharth Malhotra gets injured on the sets of ‘Marjaavaan’
Bollywood hunk Sidharth Malhotra is busy with the shoot of his next film ‘Marjaavaan’. Milap Zaveri’s directorial venture features Tara Sutaria opposite the actor. The team is currently busy shooting for the film in Mumbai and in one of the shots, the actor has injured himself.
Sidharth Malhotra was revisiting his action avatar after ‘Brothers‘ (2015) while shooting for some action sequences in ‘Marjaavaan’. It was a high-risk sequence that required the ‘Kapoor and Sons’ actor to deal with fire.
As reported by a source to Midday, “The unit has been shooting at nights at a suburban location over the past four days. One of the stunts required Sidharth to beat up the baddies while he is set on fire. Though Milap suggested that a body double pull off the stunt, Sidharth insisted on doing it himself“.
Sources added, “We took all the necessary precautions for the shot, with the star following action director Amin Khatib’s instructions to the T. While he filmed the fire scene successfully, the actor ended up bruising his knuckles while punching one of the guys during the shot.”
But the professional that he is, Malhotra continued with the night’s shoot after getting first aid.
‘Marjaavaan’ is a revenge drama that also features Sidharth Malhotra’s co-star Riteish Deshmukh from hit flick ‘Ek Villain‘ (2014). The movie has Deshmukh depicting the role of a vertically challenged man. The movie will tentatively release around October this year.
Sidharth Malhotra also has ‘Jabariya Jodi’ co-starring Parineeti Chopra in his kitty.
