John Abraham breaks a bone

John Abraham breaks a bone

Highlights

  • The actor suffered a hairline fracture during an action sequence for his next and has been advised strict bed rest for the next six days.
  • John Abraham, who is back to doing action films ever since his last film Force, went so overboard during a fight sequence that he tore a ligament and now suffers from a hairline fracture on his foot.
  • "John has hurt himself badly. Three days back, we were shooting a fight scene between him and Chetan Hansraj inside the jail premises where they were beating up each other. This was a single-take shot and we had to get it right. At one point during the shoot, John had to do a somersault over Chetan's shoulder and that's when he pulled a hamstring," said director Sanjay Gupta.
  • But the injury did not stop the actor and he landed up on the sets the next day to complete the sequence.
  • "He was managing the pain with sprays, but eventually it got really bad. The doctors have now advised him strict bed rest for six days and so we won't be shooting for the next week," added Sanjay.
  • Interestingly this could have been the result of a special shoot technique - the fluid motion, Gupta has been using for all his action sequences.
  • "The technique involves a host of eight to 12 cameras capturing the scene and so there was no question of using a body double. John has also been insisting that he wants to do all the action himself, but I don't know if I can allow that. Once he is back, we have scenes that include him climbing on top of a moving bus. We are going to take precautions so that he doesn't hurt himself," said the director.
  • When the film just went on the floors a few weeks back, John hurt his nose when a junior artist punched him by mistake, leaving the actor in extreme pain.
Mumbai: The actor suffered a hairline fracture during an action sequence for his next and has been advised strict bed rest for the next six days.

John Abraham, who is back to doing action films ever since his last film Force, went so overboard during a fight sequence that he tore a ligament and now suffers from a hairline fracture on his foot.

"John has hurt himself badly. Three days back, we were shooting a fight scene between him and Chetan Hansraj inside the jail premises where they were beating up each other.
