Bollywood actor Aamir Khan was on Saturday injured on sets while shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Dangal’ in Ludhiana.
Sources from the production team told The Indian Express that the actor is suffering from muscle spasms in the back and thighs. Doctors advised Aamir to take two days bed rest before resuming work.
The sources also said that the muscle spasm was a result of intense workout schedule which Aamir Khan is following currently and practising wrestling for prolonged hours to complete the shoot.
Dangal is based on the life of Haryana-based wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and was being shot in villages Gujjarwal, Dango, Leel, Narangwal and Kila Raipur of Ludhiana. Some sequences have also been shot at Guru Nanak Stadium in Ludhiana.
His personal trainer Rahul Bhatt, son of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and known fitness trainer, is also accompanying Aamir in Ludhiana and working on his diet and workout schedule.
Alan McAlex, the executive producer of the film, said, “Aamir just got a muscle spasm while shooting but now he is doing absolutely fine. He is resting as of now and will resume shooting soon.”
A source from Team Aamir further said, “The actor complained of sudden intense pain in his thighs most probably due to the strain he is taking for practising the wrestling moves. The shoot in village Gujjarwal was cancelled for the day immediately and he was taken for a medical check up. However, everything is fine and it was not a major injury. The shoot will resume soon.”
