Gulshan gets help from his pain pals
Cricketers aren't new to injuries, and that's why Gulshan Grover was lucky to get advice from his cricketing buddies Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir when he recently sustained an injury to his left shoulder. The actor told us, "I had gone for a charity event to Dhanbad and had to drive from there to Ranchi to catch a flight. I fell on the stage and injured my shoulder.
There was no time to even remove the shirt and have a look. I jumped into the car and then I sustained another injury when the plastic bottle I was drinking from broke when the driver slammed on the brakes. I boarded the flight to Delhi nevertheless." It was in the flight that Grover met Sehwag and Gambhir, who discovered that the actor had sustained an injury. "When I saw them, I hugged them and they realized I was in pain. I told them that I thought I had dislocated my shoulder, as I could not move my arm. They were so sweet and since they deal with injuries, they advised me and suggested that I should not ignore it and seek immediate medical help," Grover told us.
The cricketers also made sure that the actor didn't have to face any trouble. "There was a special car that had come to take them and they offered me a lift. They gave me their numbers and numbers of their specialist doctors. They said that they would call the doctors too. My pain disappeared after their genuine concern. Sehwag even SMSed me after he left and enquired about my well-being," he told us.
When the actor finally got a check-up done, he found that his shoulder was not dislocated. "I have been asked to wear a sling, but I am not wearing it. The shoot for Nila Madhab Panda's film Kaun Kitne Paani Mein had already been delayed because Kunal Kapoor had sustained an injury to his left shoulder. If he (Nila) finds out about my injury, he will have a heart attack. I'll probably tell him later," he laughed.
