During the rehearsal for her upcoming performance in the dance show Nach Baliye season 9, Pooja Banerjee met with a leg injury.
After suffering this injury, Pooja and her hubby, Sandeep, opts out of the show.
Television actress Pooja Banerjee aka Nivedita Basu of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, suffered a leg injury while rehearsing for her upcoming performance.
The ninth season of Nach Baliye has sadly witnessed more injuries than eliminations.
Pooja had entered Nach Baliye 9 with her hubby Sandeep Sejwal as wild card contestant.
Post the ugly fall, the couple will not be able to participate in the show.
Sandeep spoke to TOI, and said, “In the act, Pooja had to stand on my shoulders and fall back, with our choreographer catching her. However, she slipped, lost her balance and fell in the front from above 10 feet from the ground. She landed on her hands. The impact was such that she hurt both her hands – the joint of her right wrist is fractured, while the left elbow bone is chipped. Pooja has also sprained a ligament in her left leg. She is in a cast and the doctors are waiting for the swelling to subside before they perform the surgery, which is scheduled to take place today. She will be hospitalised for at least a week.”
He added, “Since the show is about couples, I don’t think we will be able to continue. So, we are opting out.”
Talking about the show, the contestants who are among the strong contenders to win the show are– Yuvika Chaudhary-Prince Narula, Anita Hassanandani-Rohit Reddy, Shraddha Arya-Alam Makkar, Natasa Stankovic-Aly Goni, Nityami Shirke-Shantanu Maheshwari and Ridhimma-Sourabh Raaj Jain.
