Shahid Kapoor, who has been shooting some hardcore action sequences for his new movie, Prabhudheva’s Rambo Rajkumar, managed to escape a serious injury recently.

A source from the unit reveals, “Shahid was shooting at Kamalistan Studios in the city on Saturday for a scene that required him to enter a house on fire.

ShahidHe finished his shot successfully and was stepping out of the burning house when some excess chemical solution (that is used to create the fire) dripped on to his back and arms,” says the source, adding, “Since the solution was really hot, it bore holes in Shahid’s T-shirt. He obviously reacted immediately and threw off his shirt, reducing the damage caused.”

Even though, the unit rushed to get first aid for the actor, he did suffer some minor burns on his back and arms. “He was advised to visit a dermatologist at the earliest to ensure that the burn marks heal quickly,” informs the source.

Even though Shahid remained unavailable for a comment, the actor’s spokesperson confirmed the story.
