Last month actor Vishnuu Vishal had taken to his Twitter account to inform his fans that he had suffered a nerve compression and hurt his spinal cord during the shoot of Kaadan. He had posted saying, "It's gonna b 4-week rest n treatment :( need all ur support n blessings ..have damaged the disc in the spine in neck area...neck pain is excruciating: Radiating pain in to the hands..difficult days...(hoping to recover soon n get bak to work." (sic).
And now, the actor has, once again, informed via his social media account that he is undergoing Varmam therapy to treat his neck and back. He wrote, "hi all..it was c5 c6 disc prolapse in d neck..nerve pinchin caused tremendous pain in d arm, shoulder n entire left upperbody ..because of the impact entire spine was strained...takin VARMAM therapy.. 50% better... guess wil take some more time..thnk u al for d prayers." (sic).
Vishnuu had been flooded with quite a lot of get-well-soon messages from his friends and well-wishers in the industry. He is expected to be out of action for the next month, recovering from the injury.
Kaadan is a film that revolves around the relationship between a man and an elephant directed by Prabhu Solomon. The Hindi version is being shot at the same time and the star cast for the film includes Pulkit Samrat and Kalki Koechlin. Rana Daggubati plays a 50-year-old man in the film and will be part of all three versions. Music for the film is taken care of by Shanthanu Moitra.
We hope Vishnuu gets well soon!
