Kangana Ranaut got severely injured while shooting for an intense sword-fighting sequence with co-star Nihar Pandya, when the latter’s sword hit and deeply cut her forehead. The actress was rushed to the ICCU and had to get 15 stitches on her forehead.
According to reports, the accident happened when Kangana got the timing wrong in an action sequence and was hit by Pandya’s sword. It made a deep cut on her forehead and the examining doctor observed that it was a close shave for her because the cut had been very close to the bone.
The film’s producer Kamal Jain said that the action scene had been rehearsed several times and Kangana had insisted on doing the scene herself instead of employing a body double. As the sword made a deep cut between her eyebrows, Kangana put up a brave front despite the pain and bleeding.
Her co-star Nihar was apologetic and felt terrible, but the ‘Queen’ actress tried to pacify him. The report further suggests that the injury might leave a scar on Kangana’s face, but she has decided to flaunt it for her film where she is playing Rani Lakshmibai. She will be in the hospital under observation for the next few days. Kangana might have to go in for a cosmetic surgery once the shoot is wrapped up.
