Ghajini‘s shooting schedule in Hyderabad has gone for a toss. Aamir Khan has injured his hamstring muscle yet again while shooting for the film yesterday afternoon (Sunday afternoon in Hyderabad). Just last week, Aamir had injured his hamstring while performing an action sequence following which he took rest for a couple of days before getting back to work.
Our source from the sets says, “Aamir did not want the shooting of Ghajini to suffer because of his injury. Everyone on the sets was against him pushing himself, but Aamir was insistent that we should shoot close ups. He spoke to the director A R Murgadoss and decided to shoot the close up sequences which wouldn’t aggravate his injury.”
However, it was a bad idea as his muscle got further strained. Adds the source, “He was chasing the bad guy, he stepped in a wrong position and his hamstring muscle got torn. After the shot was ‘Okayed’ for almost 40 minutes, Aamir was unable to stand up. Initially, everyone on the sets thought that Aamir was pulling a fast one, but only when he started screaming in pain, everyone got moving.”
A Physiotherapist was present on the set and he requested for a specialist to be called in. Aamir had to be carried and was taken to a local hospital. He has been asked to take three weeks of complete bed rest and the shooting has been cancelled. The source says, “He will be coming to Mumbai in a day or two, once doctors allow him to travel, after which he will be resting at his Bandra residence.”
A. R. Murgadoss, the director of the film says, “It happened on the day we were shooting some crucial sequences with Aamir. Although he had supported his leg, he got into an awkward position while shooting and he seriously injured himself again. Shooting can hold. We all right now are worried about his well being”.
