Actor Mukesh Tiwari is in pain these days after a bad fall that broke his leg during an unnecessary stunt.

Yet he continued to shoot for "The Rising" using painkillers. "It was a very important film, I had to remove my bandage as they could not wait for three months for me to recover," says Tiwari.

Like Vivek Oberoi, who lost his balance and fell from a horse, it was an unnecessary stunt for Tiwari.

"I jumped from a height of 45 feet and though I landed on the boxes - I broke my leg," Tiwari told IANS while shooting for "Tango Charlie", which stars Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Shetty.

"I had accidents earlier due to stunts but they never really came in the way of my career. But this time they have badly affected the number of movies I could commit myself to," he adds.

Tiwari had recently come up with a power-packed performance in Prakash Jha's "Gangaajal".

Tiwari's biggest surprise was when he turned down a very important role in "The Rising", which stars Aamir Khan.

"To my surprise Ajay Devgan called Aamir Khan and requested him to make sure that I was not replaced. That was a very warm gesture on Ajay's part who supported me in my bad times," adds Tiwari.

Interestingly, Mukesh Tiwari turns singer and lyricist for "Shabnam Mausi" which stars Ashutosh Rana in the lead.

"I'm playing a character called Mohan Pandit, a dreaded criminal, who is hired to kill Shabnam Mausi but later on changes his mind after meeting her.

"Instead, he participates in the election campaign. In fact, I even sang a song in front of the real crowd with no choreography, doing all the movements on an impulse," avers Tiwari.

His song will now be used in the CD of "Shabnam Mausi".
