Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda has been hospitalised in Mumbai. The actor was recently seen outside a hospital in Mumbai, wearing a mask, where he was clicked by the photographers. A source close to Randeep informed Times of India that it wasn’t a regular hospital visit and, in fact, the actor has been admitted earlier today in the morning for a major surgery, which he has probably undergone . Even a COVID-19 test was conducted, though that emerged as negative. No word on the outcome of his surgery has arrived yet.
Earlier, Randeep had talked about his Hollywood film, Extraction, with Chris Hemsworth, where he had revealed to IANS, “We practiced for weeks. We attended workshops and started with the basics of holding a gun, firing a bullet, throwing a punch. First, it was done individually and then it was Chris and I and then other actors. So the preparation work is what gives the scenes spontaneity. In Indian movies, people don’t pay too much attention to prepping for an action scene. They just turn-up on sets, and sometimes it’s just about the star value. But Chris came for all the rehearsals. Sam was helming it as well as physically shooting it, operating the camera, jumping on top of cars, hanging from ropes to capture the scene, so that made a huge difference.”
He had added, “I was glad to get the movie on two to three levels. I got to feature as the first Indian male actor doing the action in a Hollywood film. Breaking the stereotypes of IT professionals, millionaires, or comic relief in a film. It was great that I was able to break that barrier. I haven’t done hand to hand action much. I have an action image but haven’t done much action (on-screen). So, this was a new thing. It was a new territory for me as an actor, to be able to use other factors as an actor and not just drama, and to be able to use my body and to be able to learn new things.”
