Actor Ali Zafar met with an accident during the shooting of a commercial in Bangkok recently.
A glass bottle broke on the set and one of the pieces hit him hard on his face. A source close to the actor says that the shard missed his right eye by a whisker. “Luckily, it only hit him below his right eye and he was taken to the hospital for a few stitches,” adds the source.
The injured actor is now busy with the shoot for his next film, Kill Dill.
“Upon his return to Mumbai, Ali -- despite being in pain -- decided to continue shooting as certain key scenes needed to be shot with other actors. His injury has been masked with makeup,” says the source.
When contacted, the Tere Bin Laden actor didn’t deny the news.
“It’s true that I got injured during an ad shoot. But it so happened that we were shooting an action sequence for Kill Dill and my bruised face worked well for the scene,” he said, adding that he is also gearing up for the promotion of his next release Total Siyappa, where he plays a Pakistani boy in love with an Indian girl.
