Rajkumar Hirani injured, rushed to hospital

Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani met with an accident in Mumbai early on Tuesday morning and will undergo surgery. The PK director was riding a motorcycle when he fell off it and had to be rushed to Lilavati Hospital’s ICU.

While the doctors have ruled out life-threatening injuries, Hirani has fractured his jaw and has a cut on his face. The 52-year-old director was apparently riding a bike belonging to his staff member but couldn’t manage the weight of the Royal Enfield Bullet bike. He skidded and fell but as he was driving slow, the injuries were not severe.

Doctors will operate on Hirani later in the day. The Munnabhai director is currently editing his film Saala Kadoos, starring R Madhavan. He is also planning a biopic on Sanjay Dutt which may star Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role.

Hirani is known for his message-based cinema that have all been immensely successful. His last, PK, is the biggest hit ever in Bollywood.
