Actor Vishwajeet Pradhan was seriously injured yesterday afternoon while executing a stunt scene on the sets of Ram Gopal Varma’s Rakta Charitra.
He was shooting the climax where he was supposed to be shot dead. The blast was so intense that he had a huge cut along his jaw line that requires surgery. He has been admitted to an emergency ward.
Our source said, “It was a normal blast scene that went haywire as the impact was very powerful. It hit his face, leaving him bleeding. He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital, where they suggested that he should be taken to a bigger hospital.
He was admitted to an emergency ward but was later shifted to a normal ward. Surgery will be performed on his face on Tuesday and subsequently he will require plastic surgery to hide the scar.”
Naturally, the actor and his wife are worried as the wounds require serious attention. Vishwajeet’s wife Sonalika Pradhan elaborated, “He was shooting at Kamalistan when this injury happened. The doctors have asked us to wait till Tuesday before they perform the surgery. They have told us that the injury is pretty serious and we will have to go in for plastic surgery.”
Vishwajeet Pradhan has bigger problems on hand. He said, “It was my death sequence in the film. The blast was very powerful. I am worried as it has impacted my face and there will be many continuity issues with my other films.”
Ram Gopal Varma was not on the sets when the accident happened and the shoot was being handled by action director duo Aejaz-Javed.
