Mohammad Salman has been banned from doing stunts in Zee's Dance India Dance, and the reason is that he has been hurting himself of late, due to over exposure to stunts.
We talked to the talented contestant and he said, "Last week while doing the Chau dance, I burnt a part of my face. My eyes were itching so badly that I had to be hospitalized for a day. During this week's rehearsals, I suffered a hairline fracture, but ignored that. However, during the actual performance this week, I found myself in a pool of blood".
According to our source, "His toe was so badly injured that the bleeding did not stop for long. The reason for this toe injury is the low ceiling at the rehearsal halls. Even after big time restriction coming from Remo, Salman did a cartwheel and his toe ended up hitting the fan, and he was found lying in a pool of blood with a cut toe".
When asked Salman about this, he says with a smile, "I have now been warned by the mentors not to attempt any kind of stunts on stage. They say that I am one of the strongest contenders, and don't want to lose me due to some injury. I have finally decided not to perform any stunts".
On this week's performance, Salman quips, "I am performing on a Malkhamb act, which is a dance form of Maharashtra. It is basically a rope dance where I am 20 feet above the ground".
Hope Salman sticks to his promise and does not risk doing something exceptional again!!
