Actress Sunny Leone is surely made of sterner stuff than many would give her credit for. She recently got hurt while shooting a stunt for her upcoming film Tina & Lolo, but the injury didn’t keep her from continuing the shoot.
The accident happened on Thursday while Sunny Leone and her co-star Karishma Tanna were shooting an action sequence at a studio in Mumbai. The two actresses were doing the stunts themselves and didn’t take the help of body-doubles.
The scene required Sunny Leone to vault over a car and land on a baddie, and subdue him. The actress was harnessed to safety cables that gave her the lift in the air. But it was at the stunt’s end that the things went wrong. While Sunny did manage to take the baddie down, she herself landed on him, her rib ramming into his knee.
“I'm sure you have all seen the news and yes I did get hurt. Have a bruised rib and thankfully I will be just fine :). I am my biggest competitor & am always challenging myself. Sometimes I get hurt but thankfully it wasn't too bad. I’ll be more careful next time.” Sunny Leone tweeted after she was flooded with messages from well-wishers.
We hear that Sunny was in pain after the injury and was taken to her vanity van where a doctor attended to her. She was advised rest for a few days, but Sunny didn’t heed the doc’s advice. She has continued shooting the film.
Devang Dholakia, the director of Tina & Lolo says, “It was unfortunate that Sunny got hurt as utmost care is taken with both the girls safety while they are doing action scenes, we all are glad that she wasn't hurt badly and admire the her professionalism.”
Tina & Lolo will be Sunny Leone’s fourth Bollywood release. The film is expected to hit theatres in April next year.
