“Such things keep happening,” said Saif Ali Khan, pointing to his right leg that is currently in an orthopedic cast.
The actor recently injured himself while shooting an action sequence for Sacred Games, the Netflix original based on Vikram Chandra’s novel by the same name. “My foot was swollen like a football. The doctor told me it was a minor ligament tear. It was terribly painful, but it’s getting better now.”
While most actors would take time off to recover from the injury, Khan could not afford to. Vikramaditya Motwane (one of the directors of the series) did not flinch from continuing the shoot.
“I thought I’ll be out of action for some time, but that was not the case. Despite the injury, Vikram made me shoot an action sequence in a bathroom,” he laughed, the irony of the situation not lost on him, before adding, “Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am a fast healer.”
