The shoot of Salman Khan’s Eid 20202 release is on full swing. However, in a shocking turn of events, Randeep Hooda, who plays the bad guy in the film suffered a severe injury while shooting for an action sequence. The actor was immediately rushed to Kokilaben Dhirubai Ambani hospital and discharged after two days.
Turns out the 43 year old actor at the behest of perfecting his act started giving more takes and continued with the shoot until he suffered a dislocation. The actor who is hoping to resume the shoot of Radhe at the earliest said Pinkvilla, "The Korean action director and his team are a stickler for perfection and had to get a long sequence in a single shot. A co-actor jumped on my back with all his might and weight in the heat of the moment bringing all the weight down on one knee at an awkward angle. Dislocating the patella. Tried to do more takes after but that caused more damage till I had to be carried off the set on people’s shoulders."
While Randeep has been advised bed rest for a days, the actor assured that he will be back on the set soon. " Second opinions are being sought and should resume shooting ASAP,” he said.
Radhe directed by Prabhudheva is anticipated to have four to five major action sequences including a smoke fight, hand to hand fights and a shoot-out. Turns out, the most popular scene of every Salman Khan-starrer - a shirtless fight scene between the hero and the villain too will also be shot with Salman and Randeep, shortly.
Apart from Salman and Randeep, Radhe also stars Disha Patani.
