The amount of sweat and blood that goes into the movies is never seen by the audience. It takes so much more than just a camera, an actor and a director to make a movie. The actual drama happens behind the scenes, the one that we don’t get to see.
We take a look at the actors who were injured during the shoot of our favorite movie.
While shooting for Coolie in 1982, the Shehenshah of Bollywood was shooting for a fight sequence with Puneet Issar. He was supposed to land on the top of a table but unfortunately, he hit the corner of the table. His intestines were damaged and he was pronounced clinically dead for a couple of minutes. The whole country prayed for his recovery. 10 days later, Jaya Bachchan saw a movement in his toes and the whole country rejoiced.

During the shoot of ‘Manikarna- The Queen Of Jhansi’, Kangana Ranaut was injured and had to get 15 stitches on her forehead.Recently, she suffered from a ligament tear while shooting for the same movie. She also spoke about it in an interview:
I am a bit embarrassed to be thrilled to have a battle scar on my face. Also, people from my team have been telling me that it’s like that Peshwa teeka that Manikarnika wore. It’s a bit dramatic but I am excited that my face was covered in blood and I got a genuine and authentic glimpse of the Queen’s life.
