Aamir back on set after “boring” thigh injury
Thou shalt not attempt to lift and throw a man heavier than thyself.
It’s a commandment actor Aamir Khan will never forget, days after injuring himself doing precisely that on the sets of his film “Ghajini”.
The action sequence left the 43-year-old actor with an adductor muscle injury in his right thigh — certainly not the most “exciting” stunt injury of his career.
“It was quite a boring injury, no anecdotal value or excitement whatsoever,” Khan wrote on his blog .
For the benefit of fans, the actor also elaborated on the chain of events that led to the injury.
“Roll camera, action, run into frame, grab heavy goon, slam him against wall, lift him and throw him against second wall, shout in pain, hop on one leg, wave arm to call for cut, limp off to nearest chair.”
Khan said he has resumed shooting in Hyderabad with “muscle supports and belts”. And hopefully no heavy goons.
