Injuries are indeed a part and parcel of being on sets and acting, where actors have to, at times, go through several extremes to perform a scene that may result in an unprecedented injury. From doing stunts to at times, saving a co-star from a hazard, it truly is a daily occurrence that is tried to be dealt with as well as possible.
A similar instance happened recently on the sets of Naagin 4 involving actor Heital Puniwala. Puniwala was trying to save a colleague from getting injured and in the process injured himself. In a quote to TellyChakkar, Puniwala said, "We were shooting with a fire torch and the fireball fell out. My colleague’s saree was about to catch fire, but I kicked the ball. However, since we were shooting a temple sequence, I was barefoot and got hurt."
He added, "My co-actors Rakhi, Sikandar, Geetanjali, Aparna treated me well and made sure I was in no pain. The production people took me to a doctor. Balaji Telefilms is a wonderful production house, they helped and took care of me. I was not able to walk due to the pain and everyone asked me to take it easy.”
He concluded, "These kinds of incidents happen on the set and I am happy that no one else got hurt. Once before too, I had got gravely injured on a set during a cycle sequence. The production house has always taken good care of me and I don’t blame anyone for this incident.”
We certainly hope he is feeling better and is all hate and hearty as soon as possible.
