Mumbai — Actor Amit Sadh underwent surgery on his foot in Mumbai on Wednesday for a fracture he sustained while shooting in Shimla for Subhash Kapoor’s Guddu Rangeela.

Surgery was reportedly needed due to complications with the fracture.

While his producers wished him a quick recovery, the severity of the foot injury puts a question mark on at least three of his upcoming projects.

Not only does the schedule for Guddu Rangeela await Amit’s foot recovery, but the actor’s absence could also seriously jeopardize two of his other projects.

Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Yaara, in which Amit is slated to play the younger version of Tigmanshu’s character, has been postponed until July, while Kushan Nandy’s political thriller starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Chitrangada Singh, in which Amit has a stellar role, may not happen at all.

Said Dhulia: “Since Amit and I play the same character in Yaara during different stages of the film, we need to sit together and he needs to understand my body language.

“With his foot surgery, I don’t know how we’ll manage it. But Amit is my first and final choice for the role. He is really talented and suitable for the part.”

However, Nandy’s project seems hard to manage for the now time-challenged and injured actor.

Before going into surgery, Amit said: “I don’t know if I’ll be able to do Kushan’s film. It’s a terrific role for me and a great script. But at the moment my priority is to get back on my feet and complete Guddu Rangeela.”

Amit’s surgery went well and he is expected to start walking Monday.
