few days back, an ex­cited Shrad­dha Kapoor took off to Shil­long, Megha­laya, to start shoot­ing for the Rock On!! (2008) se­quel. Now, we have found out that the young ac­tor is back in Mum­bai, and is nurs­ing an eye in­jury. “Shrad­dha was in Shil­long with the rest of the film’s team. She was look­ing for­ward to start­ing work on the movie,” says an in­sider.

How­ever, a few days in, the ac­tor felt an un­com­fort­able sen­sa­tion in the eye, which kept get­ting worse with each pass­ing day. “When the team took her to a lo­cal eye doc­tor, it was di­ag­nosed that there was a scratch on the cornea of her eye,” adds the in­sider.

When the pain did not sub­side, Ritesh Sid­hwani, the pro­ducer of the film, asked her to fly back to Mum­bai to get it checked thor­oughly. “In fact, as soon as Shrad­dha landed in the city, she didn’t go home. In­stead, she went straight to her eye doc­tor,” adds the in­sider.

When con­tacted, Shrad­dha con­firmed the news, and said, “Some­thing flew into my eye, caus­ing im­mense pain. An eye spe­cial­ist in Shil­long checked it out, and we found out that it had caused a scratch on my cornea. Luck­ily, I wasn’t go­ing to be shoot­ing for a few days, so I came back to Mum­bai to get it checked out by my eye doc­tor. I will join the team shortly.”
