Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH

Ac­tor Aamir Khan, who was shoot­ing for his up­com­ing film in Ludhiana, got se­ri­ously in­jured on the sets on Satur­day.

The ac­tor, who has put on more than 35kg for the film and cur­rently weighs 90kg, has hurt his shoul­der and had to be brought back to Mum­bai for bed rest.

“Aamir got in­jured on the sets while shoot­ing a wrestling se­quence. He has suf­fered a shoul­der in­jury. He came back to Mum­bai for a week’s bed rest,” says the ac­tor’s spokesper­son.

Aamir plays the role of Haryana-based wrestler Ma­havir Singh Phogat in the film and buzz is that the in­jury is the re­sult of stren­u­ous train­ing and long sched­ules which the ac­tor has been un­der­go­ing in or­der to fin­ish shoot­ing.

How­ever, the shoot has been stopped for the time be­ing. “For now the shoot­ing in Ludhiana is stalled. The doc­tor will ad­vise fur­ther course af­ter a week,” adds his spokesper­son.

While there have been re­ports about this weight gain tak­ing a toll on Aamir's health, his trainer, Rahul Bhatt, film­maker Ma­hesh Bhatt’s son, de­nies this. “My job is to make sure to keep things in check and all I can say is that Aamir is only making this easy. He fol­lows the ad­vice of pro­fes­sion­als like us and we are min­i­miz­ing risks so that this weight gain has no long-term ef­fect on his health,” he says.

Rahul adds, “We al­ready have a bat­tle plan for him to lose this weight too. He is ad­dicted to hard work and I am 110% sure that he will lose this weight with­out com­pro­mis­ing his health.”
