Irrfan Khan injured, admitted to hospital
While shooting for a polo sequence in Tigmanshu Dhulia's sequel to Saheb Biwi..., the actor fell off his horse and injured his left shoulder.
Yesterday evening while shooting a horse riding scene in the capital for Tigmanshu Dhulia's Saheb Biwi Gangster Returns, Irrfan Khan fell off a horse and injured his left shoulder. An ambulance was called immediately and the actor was rushed to the nearest hospital. Ever since the accident, director Tigmanshu and producer Rahul Mittra have been by Irrfan's side.
Explaining what happened, an eyewitness told TOI, "Tigmanshu was shooting at a polo ground in Delhi with Irrfan riding the horse. It was a polo match with loads of other players and a huge crowd was part of the set up. Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill and Soha Ali Khan were also present at the shoot."
Apparently, Irrfan had been training for a day with the horses specifically for this scene. A source close to the actor said, "He did train for a day and was very confident. In fact, even while shooting, he appeared in control. Suddenly, the horse started behaving strangely and flung Irrfan, who fell off the horse and landed on his back. He has injured his left shoulder."
At the time of going to press, Irrfan was still in the hospital and undergoing MRI tests so couldn't be reached for comment. Producer Rahul Mittra reverted to our text message saying, "Yes, there was a small mishap; we are hoping everything is fine and are awaiting the reports."
