Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty recently injured her foot and blames her big sunglasses for the mishap. The actress says that it has disrupted the schedule of her international project Desire.

“I hurt my foot bad enough to get 15 stitches. Don't ask me how. In a freak accident, thanks to my big sunglasses and nose in the air, I overlooked a sharp metal piece that slit my foot, thankfully not below but over the foot,” Shilpa posted on her blog

“It is nothing that local anaesthesia, a tetanus injection and antibiotics couldn't solve. There's nothing to worry about other than my dates that have gone for a toss, disabling me from taking Odissi lessons for my new film Desire,” she wrote.

The actress, who made a special appearance in hit film Dostana, is extremely excited about this Indo-Chinese project in which she is working with a foreign actor for the first time. She is paired with Chinese actor Xia Yu.

But for now, she plans to take it easy for at least two weeks for the healing of her injured foot.

She ended her blog by posting: “Look before you leap and stay grounded."
