Kangana gets 15 stitches on her forehead.

Kangana Ranaut has suffered an injury while shooting for her film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, in Hyderabad and has been advised rest for five days.

The actress got injured during an intense sword-fighting sequence with co-star Nihar Pandya, when the latter's sword accidentally hit her forehead, causing a deep cut.

She was soon rushed to a hospital and got 15 stitches on her forehead.

'I am a bit embarrassed to be thrilled to have a battle scar on my face. Also, people from my team have been telling me that it's like that Peshwa teeka that Manikarnika wore,' Kangana said in a statement.

'It's a bit dramatic but I am excited that my face was covered in blood and I got a genuine and authentic glimpse of the Queen's life.'

The actress has been training in sword fighting under Hollywood stunt director Nick Powell as well as taking horse riding lessons.

Directed by Krish, Manikarnika will see Kangana in the role of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi.
