Actor Vivek Oberoi, who is performing the role of Prime Minister Narendera Modi in PM Modi biopic, hurt himself while shooting in the scenic Harshil valley of Uttarkashi district in Uttarakhand on Saturday.
Vital parts of the movie chronicling Modi’s early life and political journey are being shot in the district at places like Ganga ghat, Kalp Kedar Mandir and the suspension bridge connecting Dharali bazar and Mukhba village.
Oberoi hurt himself slightly in the leg while shooting a scene which shows PM Modi walking barefoot on snow at Ganga ghat near Dharali village.
Doctors immediately did a stitch on the actor’s leg that had got a cut from the pointed branch of a tree.
However, unit members said the actor is fine and has resumed shooting.
The scene showing PM Modi unfurling the national flag at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk along with other BJP leaders was also shot on a set erected in Dharali bazar.
The film is being directed by Omung Kumar, who is best known for films such as Mary Kom and Sarabjit.
