Varun Dhawan gave Vinay Pathak a power-packed punch

Varun Dhawan, who will be seen next in Sriram Raghavan's ‘Badlapur’, was shooting the last leg of the film's schedule in a Mumbai studio. What happened next left his co-star Vinay Pathak in a hospital and Varun guilt stricken!

Shifting away from his chocolate boy image, Varun Dhawan will be attempting something new with Sriram Raghavan's dark film ‘Badlapur’. Varun, who will be sporting many looks in the film, will also have a few fight sequences.

On the sets of this very film, during the shooting of the last leg, which was an action sequence, Varun was supposed to hit his co-star, Vinay Pathak, with a full-on power packed punch. What happened was that Varun got too excited and hit the actor so hard that Vinay got his shoulder fractured! And all this while, we thought Varun was our ‘Boy-next-Door.’!!!

In fact, we hear that the actor collapsed on the floor after the scene and hence was rushed to the nearby medical facility for help. Since Vinay could not get back to his feet, the cast and crew on the sets panicked. Later, he was detected with hairline fracture and asked to rest.

Revealed a source close to the production, "It was late at night and the two actors were shooting a scene with Radhika Apte. As part of the scene, Varun had to shove Vinay really hard. Varun who was immersed in the scene gave Vinay a power-packed push.”

Sources close to a leading tabloid added that Varun was apparently guilt-stricken and mentioned that it was a difficult scene and that he did not intend to hurt his co-star. He also further added that this is not the first time someone has been injured on the sets.  However, the ‘Bheja Fry’ actor, Vinay Pathak, being the sport that he is, made light of it.

Previously, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Varun himself have been victims of such mishaps.

The film’s shoot wasn’t held up because of Vinay’s injury. Rather the shoot was wrapped for good on Friday. Vinay Pathak came to the party with his arm in a sling.

In ‘Badlapur’, Varun Dhawan will play the role of Raghu who has shades of grey and Yami Gautam will be seen playing his wife. It also stars Huma Qureshi who will be reprising the character of a prostitute. Produced by Illuminati Films, the shoot of ‘Badlapur’ was completed on August 15 and a wrap-up party was held to mark the occasion.

Get well soon Vinay! As for Varun, we hope you’d be more careful now on!
