According to members of the cast, Katrina was doing an
underwater sequence with Akshay Kumar when her foot got tangled
under water. Says a source, "The more she tried to extricate
herself, the more her leg got tangled. She tried to scream for
help. But because of the noise on the sets including that of the
stunt co-ordinators who were shouting instructions to the entire
cast, no one heard Katrina's screams of pain."
Finally it was up to the film's leading man Akshay Kumar to do the needful. Says the source, "Akshay saw Katrina was in trouble. He quickly swam to her and got her out of the tangle." Katrina's leg was bruised and bloodied. Panic prevailed on Priyan's sets for a while until medicos arrived and took care of Katrina's wounded leg. "It could've been worse," shudders the source, "But tetanus shots and sedatives have eased her pain."
When contacted, Katrina tried to downplay the incident. "It was nothing. I hurt my leg. Nothing serious at all. There was a cut that hasn't healed as yet. So I'm in a lot of pain."
