MUMBAI: Jacky Shroff’s son Tiger Shroff has broken the jaw of a stuntman while shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala’s film ‘Heropanti.’
In this action-drama, which will be Tiger’s debut film, he got a little carried away in his action scene and the stuntman had to suffer a broken jaw.
Mid-Day quoted a source close to the film unit as saying, “Tiger was shooting a particular scene for the film at a Mira Road studio. He was required to put a certain amount of energy into his kick. But then he miscalculated and ended up hitting the stuntman quite hard; the stuntman broke his jaw. Soon after, the producer made sure that the stuntman was attended to. The production house also took care of all his medical expenses and worked towards his speedy recovery.’’
Director Sabir Khan confirmed the incident to Mid-Day, saying, “When we were shooting this scene, the stuntman didn’t react in time, so his jaw was injured. But we rushed him to the hospital and had him treated. We later shot the same scene with another stuntman.’’
