While most of the world was celebrating the end of 2013, actress Pooja Chopra’s year end was not so good. She had a freak accident at her residence which has left her temporarily immobile.
As per a report in a leading daily, she was at her Lokhandwala residence on Monday afternoon; sipping tea by a window. The glass from the window-pane collapsed on to the floor; shattered and subsequently, one of the glass pieces pierced her left leg; severing an artery and a tendon.
Her domestic help rushed her to a hospital where she underwent an emergency surgery. “Had it not been for the domestic help, the situation could have been worse,” said a friend of the actress.
Dr. Charudutta Chakraborty, who operated on Pooja said, “She had lost some blood when she was bought in. We had to put around 50 stitches to tie her arteries, nerves and tendon, which were severely damaged. To walk comfortably, and do the stunts that she does in her films, she will at least need a minimum of four months.”
