Actor Jaaved Jaffrey will soon be seen again with double the laughs for the sequel DOUBLE DHAMAAL, releasing on June 24th...after a fun filled shooting schedule however, we hear that poor Jaaved had quite the nasty finale to the shooting!
The story goes that the team needed to shoot just one final scene at Mehboob Studios. However just before the final scene Jaaved Jaffery broke his leg and had to be admitted to a hospital! The actor was in such pain that the Director Indra Kumar and Ashok Thackeria in full support altered the scene and showed all the actors lying on the bed.
When contacted Producer Ashok Thackeria said, "The film is on its last leg... Jaaved jumped on the bed very hard and his knee and the ligament below the knee cap tore very badly. We immediately took him to Lilavati as we were in Mehboob Studios...the doctors examined him after X-Rays were taken... Luckily it was not a major injury but he was in immense pain to say the least. Despite the pain, Jaaved insisted we finish the shoot and hence we then changed the scene with the four boys together on the bed. Javed was brought with a leg support and crutches to the shooting floor, and we wrapped up the shoot and celebrated later on with Jaaved and the entire team!"
Sources tell us that Jaaved had also previously hurt his other leg during the first DHAMAAL...coincidence or lucky charm, since the first film was a super hit?!! We will have to wait and see! Till then here's wishing Jaaved Jaffrey a full and speedy recovery!!
