Shahid Kapoor gravely injured in the fire accident on the sets of Rambo Rajkumar

The fire accident on the sets of Prabhu Deva’s Rambo Rajkumar earlier this week in Mumbai was not as minor as it is being made out to be

Shahid Kapoor is said to have got burn injuries on his back and hand, and the actor would need time to recover fully.

“We were shooting a fire sequence when the chemical used to create the fire went awry. It singed Shahid’s shoulder and hand. It could’ve been worse. Thankfully nothing serious happened,” said a source close to the film.

Meanwhile, the stunts in Rambo Rajkumar are getting more and more dare-devilish as Prabhu Deva wants them to be one-up on what Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar did in Wanted and Rowdy Rathore, respectively. “When Shahid decided to do his first action film, he had to make sure the stunts were of the never-before variety. That’s why he waited so long to do an action film and even opted out of his friend Siddharth Anand’s Bang Bang,” said the source.

It is little known that Bang Bang was originally planned for  Shahid. The source said, “But then somewhere down the line Shahid preferred Prabhu’s project as his first attempt at the action genre. Bang Bang is a remake of a Tom Cruise action entertainer Knight and Day and Shahid didn’t want his stunts to be compared with Cruise. Rambo Rajkumar is an original.”

When contacted, Prabhu Deva refrained from commenting on the injury, but he mentioned that he’s taking a break with his two sons. “We’re going to Australia for a holiday. During my vacation with my kids, I’ll also unveil the first look of Girish Taurani’s debut film Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya,” he said.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    This is false! Shahid was just a consideration for the film n they were thinking him with deepika I think. But teri meri kahani flopped n they passed the film to Hrithik. Bang bang is being released next year n r rajkumar now in dec. N why on earth would he say no to such a big film? Nobody would be so stupid. But if it is true that he wouldnt want to do the film bcuz he wouldnt want 2 be compared to Tom then its understandable.

    i dont think shahid had the star power to pull off a storyless film like bang bang.people came to drool over hritik not to watch a movie. but shahid opted out of it to do haider which is like the best rated film ever. he is an actor.bang bang had no story it only had hritik. haider had story and shahid and he was enough.
