Shahid Kapoor returned to Mumbai due to injury during the shooting of the film.hahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput returned to Mumbai on Saturday, after the actor had to leave the shoot of Jersey in Mohali midway due to an injury. He was seen covering up his injury with a mask.
Earlier, it was reported that Shahid was hit by a ball on his mouth while playing cricket for a scene. He was shooting at the cricket stadium in Mohali and had to get 13 stitches for his injury.
An insider told PTI, “Shahid was playing perfectly fine and rehearsing before the shot, when the ball unexpectedly came and hit him on the lower lip and cut open a wide gash where blood started gushing out. He was immediately taken for treatment and a doctor was rushed to see him. To close the wound, stitches were sutured by the doctor.”
Shahid reassured fans that he was “recovering fast”. In a tweet shared on Sunday morning, he wrote, “Thank you for all the concern. Yes I have got a few stitches but am recovering fast. Jersey has taken a little bit of my blood but a script this good deserves that in the least. Have a good one you all. Keep it real. Make it count. Spread the love. Humanity above all.”
Mira rushed to Chandigarh as soon as she got news of Shahid’s injury. The actor, who has a heavily bruised lower lip, is out of action for a few days and will resume shooting for Jersey as soon as the swelling reduces.
