In the entertainment world, no live performance is devoid of risks. Recently, Jai Bhanushali aka Neev of "Kayamath" tasted this bitter truth while rehearsing for dance show "Jhalak Dikhlaja".
"There was a dance sequence where I had to lift my choreographer, but there were some miscalculations and I ended up with an injured right shoulder. Firstly, I lifted her using a wrong technique. I was supposed to carry her on my shoulders but when I lifted her, she accidentally kicked my right shoulder. I lost balance and dropped her on the floor," recalls Jai.
Such is the injury that Jai is now on painkillers but since the show must go on, he is turning up both for the rehearsals of the dance show and on the sets of his serials. "I have to manage. I am avoiding all the stunts and just rehearsing the steps. In serials, there is not much use of my hands and hence, I try to keep myself as still as possible," says Jai.
"Jai's next shoot for "Jhalak Dikhlaja" is on September 26 and with still some time to go, the actor is quite confident of recovering by then. "I have given myself a week so that I can recover, but if I don't, then we will have to change all the choreography and cancel all the stunts in the performance," rues Jai.
Now, that would completely rob the performance of its charm. Moreover, it would also mean losing precious points. So, hope we catch Jai on the 26th in good health
