Unintentionally draws blood requiring Anil to take tetanus shot. In fact, Shakti Kapoor bit through three layers of clothing!
Anil Kapoor was badly bitten by co-actor Shakti Kapoor while shooting for Anees Bazmee's, No Problem.
The incident happened on yesterday afternoon at Filmistan Studios. Medical aid was rushed to Kapoor and as a precaution he was also administered a tetanus shot.
The scene required a wheelchair-bound Shakti to sink his teeth into Anil's sleeve and then pull him.
But as the camera rolled, he got carried away and dug his teeth deep into Anil's left arm. Unit members were shocked to see blood oozing from the wound and Anil writhing in pain.
Says a unit source, "Anil was wearing a shirt, a sweater and then an overcoat. So imagine how hard Shakti must have bit that he got through three layers of clothing."
Confirming the incident, producer Rajat Rawail says, "Yes, Shakti did bite Anil and for a while there was panic on the sets."
He adds, "Anil plays Shakti's son-in-law in the film. The scene involved an injured Shakti, who is unable to lift his arms or speak, trying to draw Anil's attention by tugging at his sleeve with his mouth.
Director Anees Bazmee wanted him to hold on to his bite, but in the process Shakti clasped his teeth hard and bit Anil."
Everyone was concerned as Anil was in pain. His wound was treated with an antiseptic and then a doctor was called in to administer a tetanus shot.
But later everyone on the sets burst out laughing including Anil.
The cast of No Problem includes Sanjay Dutt, Sushmita Sen, Kangana Ranaut, Akshaye Khanna and Paresh Rawal. Produced by Anil Kapoor, Rajat Rawail and Spice International, No Problem is slated to release in the third quarter of 2010.
