Actress Kangana Ranaut has suffered an injury while shooting Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi in Hyderabad and has been advised rest for five days.

Kangana got severely injured during an intense sword- fighting sequence with co-star Nihar Pandya, when the sword accidentally hit her forehead, causing a deep cut.

The 30-year-old actress was soon rushed to a hospital and got 15 stitches on her forehead. The doctors have also advised her to rest for a few days.

“I am a bit embarrassed to be thrilled to have a battle scar on my face. Also, people from my team have been telling me that it's like that Peshwa teeka that Manikarnika wore,” said Kangana.

“It’s a bit dramatic but I am excited that my face was covered in blood and I got a genuine and authentic glimpse of the Queen’s life.”

The actress has been training in sword fighting under Hollywood stunt director Nick Powell and also taking horse riding lessons.

Karan Johar has admitted the nepotism joke targeting Kangana Ranaut at the IIFA Awards stage was his idea and it is something that he regrets now.

Johar, Saif Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan raked up the nepotism debate during the award ceremony on July 15, where the trio chanted “nepotism rocks”, mocking Kangana for calling Karan the “flag-bearer of nepotism” on his chat show earlier this year.

Varun apologised on Tuesday, while Johar in an interview with NDTV on Wednesday said it was a case of a joke-gone-wrong and his intention was never to hurt anyone.

“What we said was meant to be a joke, which I think has been misplaced, misunderstood and I think it went wrong. I regret it. The idea of that joke was entirely mine, so I take onus of the idea of what we said. And I think we went a bit far by the Kangana mention”, said Karan.

“No matter what I say or feel about my issues with what Kangana said on my talk show... I think I was raised to be dignified, chivalrous and a decent person. That’s the upbringing that I was given and I feel that I failed on those accounts,” he said, adding that he is closing the chapter once and for all.

Actor Vivek Oberoi has seen both highs and lows in his 15-year-long career. He says if he stops getting interesting work, he will go ahead and produce his own films.

“I have never been a pessimist, I look forward to the future. I have a strong belief that tomorrow if I am not getting the kind of work I want to do, I will produce my own content,” said Vivek.

“I am not the kind of guy who will woefully sit down on my fate and crib, I didn't get this, this went wrong, I haven't got my due. If I am not happy with what I am getting, I'll make my own”, added Vivek.

Vivek recently appeared on the Amazon web series Inside Edge as Vikrant Dhawan, owner of a leading sports management company with grey shade. Currently, the actor is gearing up for the release of Tamil film Vivegam, which also stars Ajith Kumar, Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan.
