Vicky Kaushal who injured himself while shooting in Gujarat, assures his fans and well-wishers that there’s no reason to worry too much.
When contacted, Vicky replied, “Unfortunately the reports of the injury are true. But by God’s grace, I’m recovering well.” Vicky’s accident brings into focus the issue of safety shooting action scenes.
Says producer Pahlaj Nihalani, “Zamana badal gaya hai (Times have changed). Nowadays leading men like doing all their stunts themselves. They know, body doubles don’t work any more. After seeing the live action in Hollywood super-hero films and Mission Impossible they can easily tell when a hero is faking it. So now heroes have to do all the dangerous stunts themselves. I heard Tom Cruise broke his ankle while shooting for the last Mission Impossible. Now Vicky Kaushal has injured himself. Shooting will have to stop.”
