Both Shiv and Sidharth were soon taken to the nearby army hospital. “Despite the accident, Sidharth continued to shoot on Sunday, as a crew of 150 people was already on board for a pivotal scene, for which a massive set-up was put together. It was a rest day for him on Monday,” added the source.
Sidharth informed that the injury will take a week time to heal. “But given the schedule and scale of the film, I didn’t have the time to recover. Accidents like these happen and cause a bit of lapse in schedules, but I think it could have been much worse. Hopefully in the next few days, I will be absolutely fine.It is a completely new experience because not many films have been shot here. We have explored virgin locations as we want to be extremely authentic when it comes to the war. We have shot in the mountains similar to the ones where the battles were fought. The rocks were extremely sharp, and they can’t be controlled. So, there were safety concerns while we filmed action sequences and the team did everything to ensure we were comfortable.”
Shershaah is directed by Vishnu Varadhan and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, the film also stars Kiara Advani in a key role.
The film is set to hit the screens in 2020.
