When we talk about hard work and dedication the best-suited examples for this kind of big words are our bollywood actor. They have awesome skills to face every situation while their shoots and film, and the basic reason behind this kind of behavior is: “THE SHOW MUST GO ON”. They play really larger than the live character on screen but apart from all they are human too and sometimes get the short end of the stick when it comes to set injuries.
Here is the list of five actors who got injured during their shoots.
1. Ranveer Singh
It’s a known fact that Ranveer Singh puts in a lot or better to say almost everything for his each and every role. And his utmost dedication for his new part, in his recent movie Padmawat his role as a Alauddin Khilji, proves the point further. Now, we have come to know that Ranveer got injured during the shoot of the same film but still he continued to shoot showcasing his dedication and faith proves his love for the film.
Interestingly, Ranveer was really engaged in his performance that he didn’t even realize he was hurt until the director called ‘Cut’. It was only when the actor started bleeding heavily after filming the scene that everyone realized that the injury was grave and required urgent medical attention. Ranveer was taken to a nearby hospital for immediate medical aid and had to get stitches on his head. The thorough professional that Ranveer is, he completed his treatment at the hospital and returned to the sets to finish his shot. A great hats off to such a dedicated actor.
2. Akshay kumar
The shoot of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Jolly LLB 2’ is on in full swing. As the cast and crew work round the clock to finish the schedule on time, the actor is leaving no stone unturned to give his best.
According to reports, Akshay shot for a promotional song despite having a back injury. The actor was reportedly accompanied by his physiotherapist for the day-long shoot, who ensured that he did not strain his back too much. But being too tired he still use to perform his act very enthusiastically. We hear, Akshay had to wear a belt to support his back. He did not have qualms while giving retakes and also completed the dance sequence on time. It was during the shoot of an action sequence for ‘Toilet ‘ Ek Prem Katha’ that the actor had hurt his back and it has been giving him trouble since then.
3. Shahrukh khan
Shah Rukh Khan “THE KING KHAN OF THE INDUSTRY” had his first major injury on the sets of Yash Chopra’s Darr at Mumbai’s Film City. According to a script the actor was supposed to jump on Anupam Kher who was sitting on a sofa. However, when Shah Rukh jumped, Anupam lifted his left leg accidently. SRK was injured badly, fracturing his three ribs and left ankle.
4. Varun Dhawan
Varun Dhawan, who is currently shooting his movie Chanderi for Sui Dhaaga, sustained injury on the sets of the film. The actor apparently suffered a deep cut on his forehead during a stunt. Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma have been striving for the past few months as a part of preps for Sui Dhaaga. We hear that Varun insisted on doing a stunt without a body-double.
The two actors have been taking immense efforts to retain the authenticity of the film. The said sequence had to have Varun involved in a brawl and falling off the stairs. In a bid to do the same, the actor ended up suffering a deep cut on his forehead.
A source said, “Varun was supposed to roll down a long flight of stairs. He insisted that he will do the sequence all by himself. It is a realistic sequence where Varun gets entangled in a street brawl and he has to fight to protect himself. The production insisted that there is risk attached to the scene and that he shouldn’t be risking his body but he was confident. The shot went off perfectly but while rolling down the stairs, he got minor injuries on his head and forehead.”
However, since the wounds were minor, the actor is on the recovery stage. Added the source, “Varun is absolutely fine. The doctors tended to him immediately. Varun was adamant that the shoot cannot stop. He returned to the sets immediately despite being in pain and finished the shoot for the day as per production plans.”

Balki’s upcoming film ‘Ki and Ka’. The accident occurred when a supporting cast member closed the door on Arjun Kapoor’s left hand by mistake.
News reports stated that Arjun Kapoor, who was bleeding badly because of a deep cut near his fingers, got four stitches and was also prescribed painkillers by the doctor. Bad luck struck again when, a few days later, he got injured at the same place. This time round, because of the impact, his stitches got opened and he started bleeding profusely.
