Talking about his injury, Eijaz Khan said, "In season 3, unfortunately I broke two meta tassels in my right foot. You will see my limping in the introduction scene as well. I couldn't walk. The shoe size of my right foot would be one size bigger than my left foot because my leg was swollen. I had just undergone surgery and I couldn't walk properly or run at all. But sir (Nagesh Kukunoor), was very sympathetic towards it.We have a lot of challenges during shooting, but we figure out a way to overcome it. We can't pause our shoot. Unfortunately last year, six months in the latter half, I was dealing with a lot of injuries. So now I have paced myself. I've realized I am not 35-40 anymore. I understand that everything has a life. Every joint has a life. So I don't want to touch it or load or overburden it. I want to pace it and I'm working on strength conditioning mobility now, more than just strapping on more muscle."
