Shahid Kapoor has kickstarted the shooting of his next film which is a remake of Telugu movie Jersey. Well, recently the actor got injured while practicing cricket and he has got stitches on his lower lip.
A source told Pinkvilla, “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.”
“All this has left the actor with a heavily bruised lower lip, and hence he will not be able to shoot for the film till the swelling subsides and the wound is healed to enable him to emote freely. As a thorough professional Shahid is doing everything in his power to speed up recovery so he can resume the shoot in 4 – 5 days,” the source added.
The movie also stars Mrunal Thakur and is slated to release in August this year. We hope that Shahid recovers soon and gets back in action.
