Sunny Leone injured on the set of ‘Tina & Lolo’
While performing an action sequence for her upcoming film, ‘Tina & Lolo’, Sunny Leone gets injured. Sunny refuses to use a body double and insists to do the action scene by her own. On Thursday, she was shooting the action sequence with her co-actress Karishma Tanna. The injury did not stop Sunny to complete the shoot.
The scene required Sunny to jump over the villain from the top and subdue him. The actress was tied to safety cable that gave her the lift in the air. Everything was fine in the beginning but at the end of the action scene, things went wrong and Sunny ended up injuring her ribs and knees.
“I'm sure you have all seen the news and yes I did get hurt. Have a bruised rib and thankfully I will be just fine :). I am my biggest competitor & am always challenging myself. Sometimes I get hurt but thankfully it wasn't too bad. I’ll be more careful next time.” Sunny Leone tweeted after she was flooded with messages from her fans.
Sunny Leone was in total pain and she was immediately rushed to hospital in a vanity van. Doctors attended her and advised her bed rest. But Sunny continued the shoot and refused to take rest.
Devang Dholakia, the director of Tina & Lolo says, “It was unfortunate that Sunny got hurt as utmost care is taken with both the girls safety while they are doing action scenes, we all are glad that she wasn't hurt badly and admire the her professionalism.”
Director Devang informed that Sunny refused to use body double. "Sunny went through training for around two to three months before starting the film. She went through gun training, boxing and action for this film. She has not used any body double for any of her action scenes. She is a thorough professional," director Devang Dholakia said.
Sunny Leone plays Tina and Karishma Tanna will play Lolo in the film, "The action in the film is not the usual action that you seen in Bollywood. It is going to be very different," said Dholakia.
The team has wrapped up the first shooting schedule of the film.
"We have finished shooting for the first schedule and the second schedule will start from October end. We are planning to release the film by April 2014. I am very happy with the way the film is shaping up," he said.
Sunny Leone who debuted in Bollywood with ‘Jism 2’ will be seen in Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Ragini MMS 2’ and ‘Tina & Lolo’ is the fourth movie of the Indo Canadian porn star turned Bollywood actress. The film is slated to release in April next year.
