Akshay Kumar injured seriously

Bollywood action hero Akshay Kumar seriously hurt himself while shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Housefull’ at the Goregaon Sports Complex. He hurt his eardrum while diving deep into underwater and it started bleeding.

Says a source present on the sets, "Akshay was shooting an underwater sequence in a swimming pool. He dived in to the deep-end of the pool quickly, without equalising pressure and in the process, hurt his right eardrum. But he continued shooting despite being in extreme pain. Only after the shoot got over did he allow Sajid Nadiadwala to take him to the Kokilaben Ambani hospital in Andheri in the early hours of the morning.

After the doctors treated him for his injury they strictly advised him to rest it out at home for the next 10 days and to cancel all shoots. Akshay was to leave tonight for the shoot of a film but has now postponed all work commitments."

Akshay continued shooting despite pain and did not allow Sajid to cancel the shoot. Sajid is full praise for Akshay.
