Vicky Kaushal Says He’s ‘Recovering Well’ Post-Injury
Vicky Kaushal injured himself during shooting in Gujarat for his new film and he broke his cheekbone in three places
Vicky Kaushal who injured himself while shooting in Gujarat for his new film, assures his fans and well-wishers that there’s no reason to worry too much.
Though it was a facial injury, Vicky is being well taken care of. He broke his cheekbone in three places and it seemed like a very serious injury. However, when I touched base with him Vicky responded, “Unfortunately the reports of the injury are true. But by God’s grace, I’m recovering well.”
Vicky Kaushal’s accident once again brings into focus the issue of safety for actors while shooting action scenes.
Says producer Pahlaj Nihalani, “Zamana badal gaya hai. Nowadays leading men like doing all their stunts themselves. They know, body doubles don’t work anymore. After seeing the live action in Hollywood super-hero films and Mission Impossible they can easily tell when a hero is faking it. So now heroes have to do all the dangerous stunts themselves. I heard Tom Cruise broke his ankle while shooting for the last Mission Impossible. Now Vicky Kaushal has injured himself. Shooting will have to stop.”
Many mainstream actors such as Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan have injured themselves during shooting sequences. Shah Rukh injured himself during the sets of Koyla, Darr and even in My Name is Khan. Akshay Kumar was injured during the shoot of his film Kesari. He suffered an injury in his ribs during the climax of the film.
One hears the shooting of Vicky Kaushal’s film has been suspended for at least two weeks. Maybe using stunt doubles is not such a bad idea.
What say, Vicky?
