Shahid's injury is not minor

The fire accident on the sets of Prabhu Dheva's Rambo Rajkumar earlier this week in Mumbai, was not as minor as it is being made out to be. Apparently, Shahid has got burn injuries on his back and hand, and would need some time to recover fully. Says a source very close the film, "We were shooting a fire sequence when the chemical used to create the fire went awry. It singed Shahid's shoulder and hand. It could've been much worse. Thankfully, nothing serious happened." The stunts in Rambo Rajkumar are getting more and more dare-devilish as Prabhu Dheva wants them to be one-up on what Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar did in Wanted and Rowdy Rathore. Says the source, "When Shahid decided to do his first action film, he had to make sure the stunts were of the never-before variety. That's why he waited so long to do an action film and even opted out of his friend Siddharth Anand's Bang Bang."

Not too many know this. But Bang Bang was a project that was planned with Shahid. Says the source, "But then, somewhere down the line, Shahid preferred Prabhu's project as his first attempt at the action genre. Bang Bang is a remake of a Tom Cruise actioner Knight & Day and Shahid didn't want his stunts to be compared with Cruise. Rambo Rajkumar is an original." When contacted, Prabhu Dheva refrained from commenting on the injury, but did mention that he's taking a break with his two sons. "We're going to Australia for a holiday. During my vacation with my kids, I'll also unveil the first look of Girish Taurani's debut film Ramaiya Vastavaiya at the Melbourne Film Festival," Prabhu informed before taking off.
