Like Neil, actor Sanjay Dutt too recently injured his shoulder in a freak accident while shooting for an upcoming film. Here's a list of other celebs who've shed some khoon paseena for their job: 

>> Saif Ali Khan injured his right hand on the sets of Agent Vinod. He was shooting a sequence where he had to chase cars when the accident happened. As a result, his right hand was badly bruised.

>> Hrithik Roshan seems to have slogged it out for his upcoming film. First, he suffered a major heatstroke after shooting in the torrid heat. He then had to be rushed to the hospital owing to a severe back injury. The back injury was reportedly caused because Hrithik had lifted a burly fighter for a scene.

>> The Big B and Jr B had a taste of injury last year. While Amitabh suffered a hairline fracture on his rib, Abhishek injured himself twice, first on his forehead, needing six stitches, and then, fracturing his finger, while shooting for Bol Bachchan.

>> Halle Berry is definitely no stranger to accidents. She damaged her eye while shooting an action sequence for Die Another Day. Her arm was broken while filming Gothika and she was taken to the hospital after smashing her head on lights during a shoot for Catwoman.

>> Bad boy Russell Crowe seriously injured his shoulder while shooting Gladiator and then re-injured it while preparing to shoot director Jodie Foster's circus drama Flora Plum. The pain was so extreme, he had to pull out of the project.

>> Brad Pitt tore his Achilles tendon during the production of Troy.

>> During the filming of Lord of the Rings, Orlando Bloom fell off his horse and broke one of his ribs. Co-star Viggo Mortensen got a little too much into character as well. He broke a tooth while filming a fight sequence for The Two Towers and broke two toes too.
