Recently, ‘Nach Baliye 9’ had wild card entries and television actress Pooja Banerjee and her husband Sandeep Sejwal entered as the wild card couple. But they had to quit the show. The couple was rehearsing for their upcoming performance to be aired in the coming weekend but Pooja had injuries during the rehearsals and was hospitalized.

While talking to Times of India, Pooja said that during the practice session she had hurt her toe and back. “Thankfully we were wearing sneakers but I had to perform with a badly injured toe. The harness had hit my back badly,” said Pooja.

Her husband Sandeep told Bombay Times, “Pooja had to stand on my shoulders and fall back, with our choreographer catching her. However, she slipped, lost her balance and fell in the front from above 10 feet from the ground. She landed on her hands. The impact was such that she hurt both her hands — the joint of her right wrist is fractured, while the left elbow bone is chipped. Pooja has also sprained a ligament in her left leg. She is in a cast and the doctors are waiting for the swelling to subside before they perform the surgery, which is scheduled to take place today.” He further said that she will be hospitalised for at least a week.

Pooja is not the first contestant to get injured on the show. Earlier Anita Hassanandani, Urvashi Dholakia and Shraddha Arya among others also had injuries.

We wish Pooja Banerjee recovers soon.
