Nandana Sen injured, requires hip surgery


By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, May 21 (IANS) Nandana Sen sustained a serious hip injury while shooting a fight sequence for "Prince" with Vivek Oberoi but the actress is determined to wrap up the film before going for surgery.

"These things happen during a film. Can't be avoided. My joint has sustained a major labrium tear. Only surgery can rectify it, and the soonest possible," Nandana told IANS.

Nandana, who was seen in films like "My Wife's Murder", "Tango Charlie" and "Black", got temporary surgery done so that her shooting doesn't get disrupted.

"It was a bit complicated and very painful. Steroid was administered directly into the injury track by scanning machines. It should work for two weeks," she said.

Although her worried family has advised her against it, Nandana hopes to complete "Prince" in these two weeks before going for the surgery.

"I don't want the shooting to suffer. But I'm suffering. (Singer) Shakira was right - hips don't lie," said the actress who was in the news for the controversial nude scenes in Ketan Mehta's forthcoming film "Rang Rasiya".
