Shahid Kapoor had recently suffered an injury last week while shooting for his upcoming film Jersey in Chandigarh. He had heavily bruised his lower lip when he got struck by a ball. The actor was spotted wearing a mask at the airport as he returned to Mumbai with his wife Mira Kapoor, who had rushed to see him in Chandigarh. A source close to the actor had told PTI, "Shahid was playing perfectly fine and rehearsing before the shot, when the ball unexpectedly came and hit him on the lower lip and cut open a wide gash where blood started gushing out. He was immediately taken for treatment and a doctor was rushed to see him. To close the wound, stitches were sutured by the doctor." The source further added that Shahid "will resume filming after the swelling subsides and the wound is healed."
Recently, the actor took to Instagram and posted a picture on his story as he was travelling back to Chandigarh to resume the shoot. He wrote: "Thank you for all your wishes. The torn lip is still a bit raw but doesn't show much now. So back on set."
