Actor Kunal Jaisingh, who is seen as Omkara in TV show “Ishqbaaaz”, accidentally broke his co-star Leenesh Mattoo’s nose while shooting for a fight sequence.
It so happened that Leenesh, who plays Rudra, got embroiled in a fight with goons at a party in which he was rescued by his older brothers’ Shivaay (Nakuul Mehta) and Omkara. While the trio got together to fight the goons, in a mismatched co-ordination, Kunal ended up punching Leenesh on his nose.
“My nose got immediately swollen up and we had to rush for a medical aid to a nearby hospital. It wasn’t Kunal’s fault and he was guilty about it and was constantly apologising as well.
“Even when we were at the dispensary for my treatment, he was there by my side. I am glad that I’ve found a lifelong friend-cum-brother in Kunal,” Leenesh said in a statement.
“Ishqbaaaz”, aired on Star Plus, narrates the story of three brothers who are divided by family, but united by their bond with each other.
