Yes folks, it’s been confirmed as true! Hrithik hit Katrina in the face and the actress’s face is now swollen and bruised! But wait – there’s a small addition .. it wasn’t on purpose.
The rather unpleasant incident, even more so for the beautiful Kat, took place during the filming of the film Bang Bang starring Hrithik and her. Apparently, they were shooting an action scene, of which there are many in this film and Hrithik had to ‘rescue’ her in the scene.
Ironically, during the filmy rescue, Hrithik’s elbow hit the stunning starlet’s face and reportedly, it was a hard blow. So much so that Katrina was in great pain and the filming had to be stopped immediately.
Now, this is just double trouble folks – not only is Katrina’s beautiful face her bread and butter, but Hrithik’s in excellent physical shape now and boy oh boy, that must have hurt like hell!
The incident took place on July 1, and Katrina will not be shooting anytime soon, say sources. Apparently, she has been advised to take a few days rest to recover. Not just for the pain mind you, after all, the diva has to be drop dead gorgeous before she walks in front of the camera.. a black and blue face just won’t do it.
Well, as bad as Katrina feels, Hrithik must feel horrible too.
Bang Bang is the remake of the Hollywood flick Knight and Day, which starred Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. It is being directed by Siddharth Raj Anand and being produced by Fox Star Studios.
The flick boasts the biggest action scene ever filmed in Bollywood with a car sequence that involved over a 120 cars. And guess what, Hrithik did his own stunts for most of it!
This one is definitely something to look out for… as soon as Katrina makes it back to the sets of course. We wish her a speedy recovery.
