I'm fine, says Sushant Singh

Mumbai, Feb 12 (IANS) Sushant Singh Rajput, who hurt himself while rehearsing for a performance on the dance reality show "Nach Baliye 5", says he has torn a ligament, which is painful, but nothing major.

Sushant suffered injuries Sunday afternoon. His performance on the dance reality show was part of a promotional event for "Kai Po Che!", which marks his big screen debut.

"I am fine. I tore a ligament while dancing on a reality show. Hota hai (it happens). It's painful. But I've seen worse. Unfortunately, the timing for this little mishap is all wrong, since I have to be on my feet for city tours to promote 'Kai Po Che!," said Sushant.

He has been asked to take complete bed rest and would have to postpone the immediate promotional engagement in Kolkata.

"I don't know if I can do it. Because the minute I stand on my feet, there's pain. As soon as I can walk without support, I will be out on my feet. This is a very important moment in my life. The last thing I want is to be confined to bed when my movie career is about to begin," said Sushant angrily.

Meanwhile, his girlfriend Ankita Lokhande has been fielding calls from well-wishers about Sushant's injury.

"Ankita is more excited about my movie debut than I am. And that's saying a lot," said the 27-year-old who met Ankita on the sets of popular show "Pavitra Rishta".

Sushant, currently shooting for Yash Raj Films' new project with Parineeti Chopra, shot in the crowded areas of Johri Bazaar in Jaipur where star-struck onlookers got into an agitated mode on seeing the stars.

Apparently Sushant, who had to perform long dramatic dialogues in the market, jumped in to form a protective cordon around the two female actors -- Parneeti and new-find model Vani Kapoor.

"I am not supposed to talk about the Yash Raj film at all. Maneesh Sharma is a delight to work with. When I had seen his 'Band Baaja Baaraat', I had hoped some day I'd get to work with him. I didn't think it'd happen so soon."
