Anees Bazmee undergoes surgery

As per a Pinkvilla report, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 director has recently undergone leg surgery after sustaining an injury. The director had been on a fifteen day long cross-country recce to identify shoot locations for the soon-to-commence filming process. However, the last day of the recce saw the director sustain an injury - a serious one at that. As per the report, Anees Bazmee fractured his right leg, sustaining three cracks. The director had to promptly be rushed to surgery.



The source-based report reads, “He fractured his right leg with three cracks and was suggested a bed-rest for 6 months with a plastered leg following the natural process of healing. The filmmaker decided to take basic treatment from the local hospital at the spot of recce and returned to Mumbai. He consulted top doctors, who gave him the option of a steel plate followed by a 3-month rest or surgery. Anees instantly decided to undergo surgery as he is committed to shooting for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 from March 10.”
