Actor Ravi Bhatia, who plays Salim in popular
historical magnum opus Jodha Akbar, hurt his right foot
while shooting a scene.
The 26-year-old actor got eight stitches on his right foot and
continued shooting his part. "I sustained the injury when a heavy
vessel fell on my foot. The doctor had to make a deep cut to remove
the infected portion when I visited him almost a month later. I
have got eight stitches. I guess a stitch in time could have
literally saved eight in my case.
"As the current track now focuses on my love story with Anarkali
(played by Heena Parmar), I have to be on the sets and it is
difficult for me to take a break. So, I resumed shoot an hour
later," he said.
Jodha Akbar, the Zee TV show got massive ratings when
the love story of Akbar and Jodha was in full swing. The makers of

between Salim and Anarkali, whose love story is as famous as that
of Jodha and Akbar.
