WEB DESK: Aamir Khan’s busy shooting schedule for his upcoming flick Dangal, has taken a toll on his health as the actor recently collapsed while shooting, DNA India reported.
It is being said that the film’s Ludhiana schedule had to be abruptly stopped when the 50-year-old actor collapsed on the sets at the Guru Nanak stadium.
Aamir, who has been shooting in the city for the last 40 days, didn’t use a body double for a scene and ended up pulling his muscle.
Insiders revealed that the mega star was in excruciating pain even after half an hour of rest and ice packs so he was rushed to a hospital, where it was diagnosed that he had suffered a serious shoulder injury.
Aamir, who plays real-life wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in Dangal, has been famously piling on the kilos in order to portray the 60-year-old.The film is directed by Nitesh Tiwari, also stars Sakshi Tanwar and Raj kumar Yadav.
The Dangal crew has been shooting in Ludhiana for 40 days and the schedule was only three weeks away from wrapping up. Aamir, who has been wrestling for four hours on a daily basis, suffered this injury despite being under the watchful eyes of an on-set physiotherapist, a gym instructor and a local wrestler.
He will return to Mumbai today and will reportedly be on painkillers and complete bed-rest for the next eight days. While the injury is likely to heal soon, it may affect the shooting schedules of Dangal.
