Mumbai: The fierce and fiery Kangana Ranaut nearly escaped a tragic accident on the sets of her upcoming film ‘Manikarnika- The Queen of Jhansi’ in Hyderabad. She was shooting for an intense sword-fighting sequence, which went horribly wrong when Kangana got hit by a sword on her forehead, after which she began bleeding profusely.

A source from the set informed Mid-day about the fatal incident and said, "Kangana was immediately rushed to Apollo hospital nearby, where she was admitted into the ICCU. She got 15 stitches on her forehead and will be under observation in the hospital for a few days. The examining doctor said that it was a close shave for her because the cut was too close to her bone."

Adding to it, the producer of the film Kamal Jain said that Kangana refused to use a body double and insisted that she would do the scene herself. Despite the scenes being rehearsed several times before, the timing went wrong during the main shoot sequence.

"Kangana had to duck when Nihar (Pandya) attacked her, but the timing went wrong and Nihar's sword hit her forehead instead. It made a deep cut between her eyebrows. The drive to the hospital took a good 30 minutes, but she put up a brave front despite the pain and bleeding. Nihar was apologetic and felt terrible, but Kangana pacified him," said the producer.

According to the examining doctor, Kangana will be left with a scar.

However a source further informed the publication that Kangana wants to flaunt her scar in the film. "Rani of Jhansi was a warrior. So Kangana has decided that she will wear her scar with pride just like the Queen of Jhansi did."

Brave Kangana Ranaut will get discharged from the hospital next and might have to undergo cosmetic surgery after completion of this film.

Film ‘Manikarnika - The Queen Of Jhansi’ is reported to release in April 2018.
