According to a Pinkvilla report, a source has said, "It was all fine till this afternoon. Shahid had come to give his shot. It was at the cricket pitch and he had to shoot a few portions of the sport today. But after sometime, he got hit by the ball on his head and suffered an injury. The bouncer hit him right above his eyes."
The source also mentioned that the actor was rushed to the hospital immediately and said, "He is fine now. But the injury was a deep cut so he had to get 13 stitches. Mira (Rajput) has rushed to Chandigarh now on hearing the news. There's nothing to worry anymore."
