New Delhi: Actress Kareena Kapoor suffered a sprain in the neck while shooting for beau Saif Ali Khan`s ‘Agent Vinod’ in Delhi. The couple have been shooting in Delhi for the film for the past few days.
A unit source informs, "Bebo plays a role that has grey shades and will be doing her own stunts for the first time. She`s extremely excited and has toned her body for it. Yesterday she had to eject from a helicopter using a harness and fire guns while at it. She fell from the harness at some distance from the ground, spraining her neck. She was in a lot of pain and couldn`t get up."
Fortunately, there are two medical teams stationed on the sets and one was immediately rushed to assist Bebo. Meanwhile, Saif was shooting a chase sequence at a different location.
"When she resumed shooting, Kareena had bruises but gamely continued shooting after taking painkillers and injections. A concerned Saif kept calling her every hour to check if she was fine."
Professional that Bebo is, she continued with the shooting because it was her last day in the capital. She had to head back to Mumbai the next day to start work on Reema Kagti`s film which also stars Rani Mukerji and Aamir Khan.
Kareena said, "I have not done this kind of action before. I had a neck sprain as I had to do a fall from the harness. I never thought I would enjoy action but I am surprised how much I love it here. Peter, the action guy, makes things so easy. I am currently not on medication but ointments and painkillers and am still shooting for ‘Agent Vinod’."
Here’s wishing Kareena a speedy recovery!
