The incident happened when Katrina and Akshay were shooting for a rain song for Farah Khan's film Tees Maar Khan last week at Malshej.
Accident ho gaya
Katrina describes how it went down, "Akshay and I were doing a song where some lines had to be shot in the rain. They kept splashing water on my face and I was screaming as it was choking me! After one such splash, Akshay was to pick me up romantically and hold me in his arms. But when they drenched me in water and I couldn't breathe I lashed my head out and whacked him hard in the face by mistake!"
Katrina adds that Akshay got dazed for a bit. "Poor Akki, I felt terrible as he must have hurt his head badly but Akshay can bear a lot of pain and he kept saying it was all right. He's one person who has never cancelled a day's shoot despite being unwell or having an accident on the sets. He takes his medicines and completes the shoot quietly without any fuss. Farah asked him if he wanted to take a break. He refused."
About her role in TMK, Katrina says, "I play a cute, funny, ditzy, lovable wannabe actress in the film. It's glamorous but louder and more exaggerated than the roles I have done before."
Ironically, this won't be the first time the two actors have suffered injuries during filming. While Kat last suffered an injury to her nose while shooting a similar rain-dance scene with Ranbir Kapoor in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, Akshay's last injury was on the sets of Patiala House.
Katrina has already completed a 20-day shoot with Farah for Tees Maar Khan and is all praises for her director-producer. "Farah is extremely hard-working person. I have never worked with a woman before and Farah is so precise, organised and clear about what she wants."
