The handsome hunk of Bollywood, Sidharth Malhotra, who is currently in Kargil for the shooting of Shershaah has unfortunately met with an accident as his bike skidded during the schedule. As per the Mumbai Mirror report, this incident took place on Saturday while riding a motorcycle on the hilly terrain. The source close to the film told the tabloid, “After the shoot, Sid and Shiv (Pandit, co-star) had ventured out for a ride when Shiv lost his balance and slipped off his bike. Sid, who was right behind him, had to apply brakes due to which his bike skidded, resulting in hand and leg injuries.”
Both Shiv and Sidharth were soon taken to the nearby army hospital. “Despite the accident, Sidharth continued to shoot on Sunday, as a crew of 150 people was already on board for a pivotal scene, for which a massive set-up was put together. It was a rest day for him on Monday,” added the source. Sidharth informed that the injury will take a week time to heal. “But given the schedule and scale of the film, I didn’t have the time to recover. Accidents like these happen and cause a bit of lapse in schedules, but I think it could have been much worse. Hopefully in the next few days, I will be absolutely fine.It is a completely new experience because not many films have been shot here. We have explored virgin locations as we want to be extremely authentic when it comes to the war. We have shot in the mountains similar to the ones where the battles were fought. The rocks were extremely sharp, and they can’t be controlled. So, there were safety concerns while we filmed action sequences and the team did everything to ensure we were comfortable.”
Shershaah is backed by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and is directed by Vishnu Varadhan from a story written by Sandeep Srivastava. It also stars Kiara Advani in a key role and is set to hit the screens in 2020. So, are you excited for the film? Tweet to us @bollywood_life
