Action hero Vishal sustained injuries on his fingers while shooting for a stunt sequence for his Hari directed Poojai in Chennai on Monday (April 28).

He was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital and doctors had to put 14 stitches on his right hand.

Vishal was shooting some dangerous action scenes at Mohan Studios, with action director Kanal Kannan choreographing the scenes. He was to hit a stunt man on his face, but the guy ducked at the last minute and Vishal’s right hand went and smashed the sharp edge of an asbestos sheet, resulting in the injury.

The doctors who treated him rest for a week, but the actor was up and raring to go a few hours later. An expensive set was erected for the shoot and Vishal the producer did not want the cost to go up.

The Hari directed Poojai has Sruthi Haasan playing the heroine and has Sathyaraj in a pivotal role. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Poojai is scheduled to release for Diwali 2014.
