john Abraham, who was shooting for Anees Bazmee’s Pagalpanti at Mehboob studio, met with an accident on the set.
Mumbai Mirror reported that the actor had a muscle tear in his arm and was advised by the doctors to rest for three weeks. For the next two weeks, John will not be able to shoot.
The film, which also stars Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz and Kriti Kharbanda, is a comedy and has been shot in London and Leeds.
Talking about the same, a source stated to the tabloid, “John has been advised rest for the next 20 days to avoid aggravating the injury. His co-actors Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz and Kriti Kharbanda were also a part of the scene.” Kumar Mangat, who is co-producing Pagalpanti also confirmed the report and said, “It was a simple shot, but mistiming caused the injury. Ninety per cent of our shoot has been completed in London and Leeds.”
He added, “This is the last schedule in Mumbai which we will have to reschedule now. After a week, we will decide when to resume depending on how quickly he recovers. We will wrap up the film by June end.”
Pagalpanti is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Abhishek Pathak, Krishan Kumar and Kumar Mangat. The film is expected to hit the screens on December 6, 2019, and is likely to clash with Panipat and Pati Patni Aur Woh.
A source had said to Bollywood Hungama, “Since they are starting the movie in the first half of 2019, the makers are looking out for a date during the end of the year. They have decided to lock the date as December 6, 2019.”
