- Kangana Ranaut was hit by a sword between her eyebrows
- 'She put up a brave front despite the pain and bleeding,' says producer
- Manikarnika is a biopic on Rani Laxmibai
Manikarnika producer Kamal Jain told mid-day that Kangana was hit by a sword between her eyebrows on Wednesday evening and was rushed to a nearby hospital immediately. "Kangana had to duck when Nihar (her co-star Nihar Pandya) attacked her, but the timing went wrong and Nihar's sword hit her forehead instead. It made a deep cut between her eyebrows. The drive to the hospital took a good 30 minutes, but she put up a brave front despite the pain and bleeding. Nihar was apologetic and felt terrible, but Kangana pacified him," he said. Kangana has been shooting for the Krish-directed film in Hyderabad's Ramoji Film City for a week.
Kangana had rehearsed for the scene several times before the actual shooting and refused to use a stunt double for the tricky action sequence. "She got 15 stitches on her forehead and will be under observation in the hospital for a few days. The examining doctor said that it was a close shave for her because the cut was too close to her bone," a source from the film's unit told mid-day.
