Shahid Kapoor has been shooting for ‘Jersey’, the Bollywood remake of Telugu blockbuster with the same name. The film, based on the life of a cricketer is being shot in Chandigarh. During one of the rehearsal shots, the actor was accidentally hit by a leather ball as he attempted to hit it. The ball hit his lip so bad that it cut open and blood came gushing out.
The actor who was practising at the Mohali stadium was rushed to the hospital nearby where he received 13 stitches on the mouth. A source close to the Jersey team said, “Shahid was playing perfectly fine and rehearsing before the shot when the ball unexpectedly came and hit him on the lower lip and cut open a wide gash where blood started gushing out. He was immediately taken for treatment and a doctor was rushed to see him. To close the wound, stitches were sutured by the doctor,”.
The star wife Mira Kapoor rushed to Mohali after she heard the news. The actor is fine now, but he won’t be shooting for the next couple of days because of the severe swelling around his mouth. Shahid and Mira were spotted exiting the Mumbai airport last night where Mira looked tensed while Shahid covered his face with a mask.
‘Jersey’ is a film based on the life of talented but failed cricketer who returns to the field in his late thirties. He is driven by the desire to represent the Indian cricket team and fulfil his son’s wish for a jersey as a gift. Directed by Gowtam Tinnanauri, ‘Jersey’ also stars Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapoor. The film is slated to hit silver screens in August 2020.
