Priyanka Chopra tore a muscle while filming a stunt for an action-packed role in her new movie Drona , that stars Abhishek Bachchan in the title role. In the film Priyanka plays a bodyguard skilled in an ancient Sikh martial art, wielding a sword and a 'kirpan,' or dagger.
"I was doing a somersault when I felt something give way inside my rib cage,'' the newspaper quoted the former Miss World as saying. ``I've apparently suffered a tear in my abs.''
Although Priyanka was advised to rest, her busy schedule did not permit a break for the next few weeks as she has dance scenes and more stunts to film.
``It's so painful. I've no choice but to continue,'' Priyanka told the newspaper. ``I don't know how I'll manage.''
Priyanka said she was enjoying shooting for the role in the thriller, ‘Drona’ and has been announcing: ``I'm armed and dangerous'' every time she arrives on the set.
Abhishek plays a superhero in the film, which has Kay Kay Menon as the villain.
