While preparations are being made for the promotion of Aamir Khan’s next ‘Dangal’, there’s been a slight set back for the team as Fatima Sana Shaikh has fractured her leg.
Shaikh who will be essaying the role of Geeta Phogat, the eldest daughter of Mahavir Phogat, played by Khan, has a hairline fracture and has been advised to rest. Reported in Mid-day, a close source said, “Although the shoot has wrapped up, Fatima still follows the workout regime that she used to while prepping for ‘Dangal’. Last week, she was practising kick boxing when she fell and injured her right foot. The X-ray revealed a hairline fracture. She has been advised rest for six weeks.”
The source further added, “She is moving around with the help of a crutch and is expected to participate in promotional activities. She will be accompanying Aamir and Sanya Malhotra (the other actress playing Babita Phogat in the film) to Geeta’s wedding tomorrow.”
This is the first time Shaikh has injured herself during the course of filming, in February this year Shaikh fracture her ankle when practising for a wrestling scene.
