Force 2 shooting in Hungary delayed: John Abraham injured in accident
MUMBAI: John Abraham, currently shooting for Foce 2 in Budapest, Hungary, suffered a knee injury doing an action sequence and had been hospitalised, delaying the project. His Heroes' Square sequence is yet to happen. John had
posted a photo on his official Facebook account lying on the hospital bed, saying, "Thank you for all the well wishes! Getting better every day and will be back to the
sets soon hopefully!"
"We were shooting for an action sequence, which required John to
break open a door. He managed to do so but injured his knee in the process, since he pushed it too hard. None of us ever imagined that something like this could
happen. He was immediately rushed to the hospital where the blood clots that he had developed, as a result of the injury, were removed," producer Vipul Shah, who
was also on the spot, said.
A minor surgery was conducted on his knee as he insisted on continuing the filming and had to be broought back to the hospital. It was said a blood clot had
to be removed. The shooting had to be postponed. A dialogue sequence on Heroes' Square was remaining to be done. The team is on a 50-day project.
Director Abhinay Deo's Force 2 was scheduled to wind up by October 22 but from the very beginning it has been plagued by problems. First the shoot was disturbed
by the Syrian refugee crisis and the mahurat itself was delayed by a few days. Then came the accident. Scenic Budapest is a popular shooting location for
Hollywood action flicks.
In Force 2 John Abraham reprises his role in the 2011 film where Genelia D'Souza had starred. This time John is romancing 28-year-old Sonakshi Sinha, who is in the
role of a RAW agent. The thriller will be released in the first half of 2016.
John has a busy schedule currently with ‘Welcome Back’, ‘Rocky Handsome’ and ‘Dishoom’ on hand.
