Actress Nora Fatehi was “severely injured” while performing a high octane action sequence for the upcoming film “Bhuj: The Pride of India”.
“I’ve just got back from Bhopal after shooting my part of the film “Bhuj: The Pride of India”. It involved a lot of emotional scenes and an entire high octane action sequence in which I ended up getting severely injured,” Nora said.
Nora, who is currently riding high on the success of her latest release “Street Dancer 3D”, hurt her forehead.
“In one sequence my co-actor accidentally threw a gun straight into my face which caused my forehead to bleed and swell up. I was in a lot of pain however I knew the director needed to complete the shoot as he was on a very tight schedule so I continued to shoot throughout the day in spite of the injury. It left a huge mark for over a week on my face,” she said.
Bhuj: The Pride of India stars Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharad Kelkar, Ammy Virk and Pranitha Subhash. The film is directed by Abhishek Dudhaiya.
