Though the actor took some painkillers and finished his scene that day, it was obvious that he was in great discomfort and pain. But after pack-up, he requested Vijayan to shoot without him for a couple of days. Producer-director Arbaaz Khan confirms, "Salman had an old injury or maybe the ligament he sprained was already strained.When he started shooting, the injury got aggravated."
Arbaaz adds, "Salman took painkillers that day but by evening, his arm was all swollen and bruised. The next day, it got worse and he requested our action master to shoot without him for a day. It's difficult to do action scenes without lifting your arms and he couldn't do that. Salman is still in pain."
The injury is serious and shooting for the Arbaaz Khan's Dabanng has been cancelled for next few days. Says an eyewitness, "Salman was shooting a complex action scene with action director Vijayan (Wanted) when he tore a ligament in his right arm. He could barely move it after that."
