New Delhi: Actor Vicky Kaushal has a scar on his face in his upcoming film Sardar Udham. While it may seem that the scar is a prosthetic effect, Vicky Kaushal has recently disclosed that it is a genuine scar.
Talking at the trailer launch, Vicky said that he had got injured shortly before the shoot of the film was about to begin. For that reason, he had to get 13 stitches on his face. The injury eventually turned into a part of Sardar Udham.
“I got 13 stitches on my face due to an injury. The scar you see in the film is real,” he expressed, as per India Today. In 2019, trade analyst Taran Adarsh made a tweet that Vicky had harmed himself during the shoot of the movie ‘Bhoot: The Haunted Ship.’
“Vicky Kaushal gets injured while filming an action sequence… Shooting for director Bhanu Pratap Singh’s horror film in #Gujarat… Vicky fractured his cheekbone and got 13 stitches on his cheek,” Taran tweeted. In April 2020, Vicky, during an Ask Me Anything session disclosed, “Met with an accident during Shoot… Hairline Fractured cheekbone. 12 internal and 13 external stitches. Kaafi Haunting.”
