Ghajini's shooting schedule in Hyderabad has gone for a toss. Aamir Khan injured his hamstring muscle yet again while shooting for the film on Sunday afternoon.
Last week, Aamir had injured his hamstring while performing an action sequence following which he took rest for a couple of days before getting back to work.
Our source from the sets says, "Aamir did not want the shooting of Ghajini to suffer because of his injury. Everyone on the sets was against him pushing himself, but Aamir was insistent that we should shoot close ups. He spoke to the director AR Murgadoss and decided to shoot the close up sequences which wouldn't aggravate his injury."
However, it was a bad idea as his muscle got further strained.
Adds the source, "He was chasing the bad guy and his leg was in an awkward position and now his hamstring muscle is torn. After the shot was okayed for almost 40 minutes he could not get up only. Initially everyone on the sets thought that Aamir was pulling a fast one, but only when he started screaming in pain. Everyone got on to action."
Aamir was then taken to a local hospital. He has been asked to take three weeks of complete bed rest and the shooting of the film has been cancelled till then.
A R Murgadoss, the director of the film says, "It happened on the day we were shooting the some crucial sequences with Aamir. Although he had supported his leg, he got into an awkward position while shooting and he seriously injured himself again. Shooting can hold, we all right now are worried about his well being."
Aamir will apparently be coming to Mumbai in a day or two.
