Salman Recovers From Injury and Returns to Work

Salman Khan , the Bollywood actor with a Midas touch has reportedly been injured on the sets of his upcoming movie – Mental. The actor has been involved in death defying stunts and action sequences all through his career in the industry.

It therefore comes as a surprise that the veteran hurt his right toe and sprained his ankle during the shooting of an action sequence for the movie. The seriousness of the injury was such that the shooting had to be called off for the day. The action sequence was being shot at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. The 47 year old actor was in so much pain that he could barely walk.

On lookers say that he was limping and was in no state to carry on with the shooting. This prompted the cancellation of shooting for the day. Salman’s fans were visibly tensed about the condition of their hero. But the macho man of Bollywood was quick in reassuring them that everything is under control and that he will spring back to action as soon as possible. In Salman’s own words, “Not injured yaar, just a hamstring pull while running. Back to action”. This was his official statement on the popular micro blogging site twitter.

Mental is a remake of Telugu blockbuster movie 'Stalin' which had featured South superstar Chiranjeevi. Stalin had released in the year 2006. It was directed by A R Murugadoss. Sohail Kahn, brother of Salman Khan has wielded the megaphone for the remake. Mental will mark the debut of Kannada actress Daisy Shah in the Bollywood film industry. The film will also star Sana Khan, Aditya Pancholi and Tabu in supporting roles.

It will be the debut for Sana Khan and Santosh Shukla as well. The film has eyed a December or a January release. Insiders say that the movie could as well be released in 3D. Sohail Khan has not confirmed the development yet and would be more than glad to finish the schedule of the already delayed movie.

Shooting has been going on quite rigorously in Hyderabad for few weeks now. That is, till it was disrupted by the unfortunate accident of Salman. The movie will be high on the action quotient and is expected to be a huge hit when it releases. Salman’s new found love, Lulia Vantur is also in Hyderabad currently, by his side.
