"There was a danger of some infection because we fell on the road. The injury will take at-least a week plus to heal, however, given the schedule and scale of the film, I didn't have that time to recover," Sidharth said. "Accidents like these do happen and cause a bit of a lapse in the schedule, but I think it could have been much worse. Hopefully, in the next few days, I will be absolutely fine," he added.
