Kangana Ranaut injured on the sets of Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi

 

 

Kangana Ranaut was rushed to a hospital after a sword fight scene went wrong. The actor was shooting a sequence with co-star Nihar Pandya. In the scene, she was expected to duck when Nihar swung the sword at her, but because the timing was wrong, the sword hit her between her brows resulting in 15 stitches. The shooting happened in Hyderabad and the actor was taken to Apollo hospital and admitted at the ICCU. She is expected to be discharged next week.

A unit hand said, “Kangana was immediately rushed to Apollo hospital nearby, where she was admitted into the ICCU. She got 15 stitches on her forehead and will be under observation in the hospital for a few days. The examining doctor said that it was a close shave for her because the cut was too close to her bone.”

Producer Kamal Jain was also quoted as saying, “Kangana had to duck when Nihar attacked her, but the timing went wrong and Nihar’s sword hit her forehead instead. It made a deep cut between her eyebrows. The drive to the hospital took a good 30 minutes, but she put up a brave front despite the pain and bleeding. Nihar was apologetic and felt terrible, but Kangana pacified him,” to Mid-Day.

Speaking to Pinkvilla, Kangana said, “I am a bit embarrassed to be thrilled to have a battle scar on my face. Also, people from my team have been telling me that it’s like that Peshwa teeka that Manikarnika wore. It’s a bit dramatic but I am excited that my face was covered in blood and I got a genuine and authentic glimpse of the Queen’s life.”
