We’ve all heard of actors being injured while shooting for stunt scenes (everyone from Jackie Chan to Amitabh Bachchan has sustained injuries). But in a first of sorts, the lead actor of Dabangg 2 — Salman Khan — was almost injured by his romantic interest — Sonakshi Sinha. And from the look of things, this wasn’t a domestic quarrel turned nasty for the now-married Chulbul Pandey.
The song Dagabaaz Re has a sequence where Sonakshi and Salman are enacting a scene on a stage. Sonakshi was required to wield a sword playfully for the shot. But it seems, she nearly hit the actor during this shoot.
A source from the film team says, “Due to an error in timing, the sword almost hit Salman. Luckily, it missed his face by a fraction of a second.” The source says that while everyone on the set was stunned, both Salman and Sonakshi laughed it off.
“Later, they made sure they were perfectly in sync for this shot. They didn’t want a repeat of what had happened earlier.” Sonakshi confirms, “While filming that particular shot, I almost stabbed him (Salman).”
