Richa Chadda was shooting a chase scene when she injured herself on the sets of her next, leading to the shoot coming to an abrupt halt

It seems quite a lot of Bollywood actors lately have become victims of injuries sustained on the sets. The latest actor to join the bandwagon is Richa Chadda.

The Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! girl, while shooting a stunt scene for her upcoming film, met with an accident recently on the sets. Richa has been advised bed rest for a month and is currently recuperating at home, causing a delay in the film’s shoot schedule.

We learnt that the starlet is scheduled to undergo a knee surgery tomorrow. A source from the crew reveals, “On the first day of the third schedule, Richa was shooting a chase scene when she suddenly slipped and injured her knee.

She took some painkillers and finished the shoot for the day. It was only when she reached home that she realised it was really bad.”  The source adds, “Since she needed complete bed rest, she has gone to Delhi to be taken care of by her family.

Richa is in a lot of pain but her spirits are still high. She is catching up with all her school and college friends who have been giving her loads of books to read and films to watch.”

The shoot is apparently on hold due to the mishap. On whether it has caused a delay, director Bharat Ratan says, “We had to stop the shoot but we are utilising the time to edit the portions we shot earlier.”
