Shamita Shetty fractures her nose on ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded’


Shamita Shetty, sister of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty breaks her nose while rehearing a tough dance sequence for the dance celebrity show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded’. “I fractured my nose while rehearsing on Thursday (July 23). It was a freak accident. I dashed into my choreographer Deepak,” she says.

Shamita was bleeding profusely when she suffered the cut. She has to undergo surgery on Friday (July 24). She adds, “They had to stitch the inside of the nose, and now it is in a plaster and tough to manage. The painkillers and antibiotics are taking a toll on my body, as I feel drained of all my energy.”

She now has to perform on some lighter steps as it might cause adverse effect. “I am feeling terrible. I am supposed to rest for two weeks at least, and not be performing. But, as they say, the show must go on. I am sad that my act won’t be as power-packed as my earlier ones. Right now, I don’t know how I will dance with a plaster on my nose, but an injury won’t keep me out,” she says.

Elder sister Shilpa Shetty shared the news of Shamita’s accident. She tweeted out:

"Terrible news with @ShamitaShetty having a freak accident @Jhalak dikhlaja rehearsals .Nasal fracture n a couple stitches."

In the meantime, a fan heard about the injury and tweeted:
