Harshvardhan Kapoor is making his much-awaited acting debut in Rakeysh Omprakasha Mehra’s Mirzya, co-starring Saiyami Kher, next month. The actor will be seen performing high-octane stunts in the film. However, he didn’t expect what came along with the action sequences. He met with injuries while performing some of the acts.
A source says, “While shooting for a sequence, Harshvardhan suffered a concussion. Also, he received a major blow near one of his ears during the climax shot. It has affected his hearing and Harshvardhan is currently undergoing treatment for it.”
When contacted Harshvardhan says, “I had a concussion because I accidentally landed on the back of my head during a scuffle sequence. It took 18 months to go from being a non-rider, to an accomplished rider, and an archer. It also took time to physically transform for both characters.”
