A unit member says, “It was during a fight sequence that he was pushed and got injured. After calling for first aid, he finished the shoot. Later, he was taken to hospital.”

Doctors have advised him rest for two days, says another source, adding, “Incidentally, we were supposed to shift to another location the next day and it took us two days to shift the equipment and arrange the set-up. So, he got some time to relax and will resume shoot soon.”

The film's spokesperson confirms the story and says the accident did not affect the shoot schedule in any way. The actor tweeted that he was on the road to recovery.

Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film also stars Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles.
