Bigg Boss OTT winner Divya Agarwal is recovering after she reportedly suffered a nasty injury while on set of her latest music video shoot. According to reports, the reality TV star injured her leg during filming, though she insisted the team continue the shoot.
Although Agarwal has not yet commented on the alleged incident, and details remain scarce, a source close to the project confirmed the injury to Times of India. According to the source, Agarwal had been in the middle of filming a music video when she injured her leg. The reality star was immediately seen by the set doctor, who determined Agarwal suffered an injury to her Achilles heel. Despite the injury and the fact that the music video shoot required dancing, Agarwal was determined not to postpone the shoot and instead opted to complete filming with her injury.
"Divya insisted on finishing filming the song entirely. Sources informed that the actress didn't want her co-actor and the crew of the project to be in an inconvenient situation," the source told the outlet. "Divya was overheard telling her team that one delay can cost her producers as well as the entire team major losses and she would never want to be the reason behind it due to which she pushed herself and continued."
The severity of Agarwal's injury is unknown. The reality star and musician has not confirmed the report herself. Times of India reached out to Agarwal, though they did not hear back at the time the story was published.
