Kangana Ranaut was injured while shooting for the film Manikarnika, a biopic on Rani Laxmi Bai, in Jodhpur Tuesday night. She sprained her foot while doing a stunt and was rushed to a private hospital.
“Kangana had a sprain in her right foot but there was no fracture. We applied a plaster cast and she was advised a week’s rest,” Dr Narendra Yadav of Goyal Hospital, Jodhpur, told HT. The actor was discharged around 2 am on Wednesday and left for Mumbai in the afternoon to recover from the injury.
Kangana plays the iconic role of Rani Laxmi Bai in the film. She was shooting for the same at Jodhpur’s Marangarh fort. In the scene, Rani Laxmi Bai jumps off a 40 feet wall with Damodar, her adopted child tied to her back on to a horseback. While performing this scene, Kangana didn’t land properly and in an attempt to save the kid from any injury, she ended up hurting her ankle.
“We did an X-ray and found that there was no fracture. It was just a sprain, after which we put a cast and recommended her to rest for some time,” he said.
The actor interacted with the media present at the hospital and said that she was doing better.
Dr Pulkit Goyal, who treated the actor, said she has been prescribed to take some rest.
After being discharged, Kangana was taken back to her hotel, where she rested for the day until flying back to Mumbai in the afternoon.
Earlier in July, Kangana got severely injured during a sword-fighting sequence with co-star Nihar Pandya, when the latter’s sword accidentally hit her forehead, causing a deep cut.
