Adnan Sami injured while shooting for music video


By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, Oct 13 (IANS) Pakistani singer Adnan Sami, who was shooting with Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine for a music video in the sea waters near the Gateway Of India, was seriously injured while shooting.

"Nothing to worry about, though. I'll be repaired in no time at all," Adnan told IANS.

The accident took place Sunday when a speedboat speeded a little too fast in the sea waters near the Gateway Of India where the shooting was taking place.

So what happened?

"I guess the man navigating the boat took his job a little too seriously. He was moving too fast through the water and the boat almost toppled over and turned turtle. I was knocked against a hard surface in the boat," said Adnan.

Adnan's left hand and thumb were badly injured. "Fortunately there are no fractures. But the pain and swelling were alarming. I couldn't move my hand. But we had to continue shooting because we had no permission to shoot in that area beyond Sunday."

"I'm just thankful that Jermaine wasn't in the boat when it almost capsized. That would've been one helluva story he'd have carried back home," said Adnan.

The shooting started Friday in various parts of Mumbai and Sunday was the last day of shooting.
