John's doctor had prescribed pain medication and rest for a couple of days. But John not only completed his shot but shot the next day again and attended both the Screen and Lions Club Awards the same night. David Dhawan confirms, "We were shooting an action scene where John had to slide down a 20-foot pole. He slipped and gashed his leg badly on the pole. But he behaved as if nothing had happened, completed the shot and only went home after completing his work for the day.
He refused to take any medication on the sets and said he would go to doctor later. John is a very nice guy and thorough professional. Now he's shooting with me for the next three months." John admits, "Yes the gash was bleeding a bit at the Screen awards but it's normal for us actors to have these small accidents while shooting. It's all part and parcel of a film shooting and we are not supposed to complain. David has been very cooperative and I wouldn't say or do anything to stall his shoot.
I am loving shooting for this comedy film. Though we are shooting actions sequences it's more fun than action." John, who plays a cricketer in Hook Ya Crook, had last hurt himself in a bike accident in 2008 where he had to be hospitalised for a week.
