Amala Paul, who has been shooting for her upcoming thriller Adho Andha Paravai Pola, suffered a ligament tear recently. The film is said to have several stunt sequences and Amala has been shooting without a stunt double. During one such sequence, the actor is said to have twisted her right arm, that led to the ligament injury.
According to a report, Amala initially continued shooting thinking it was a sprain. But the mounting pain made the star leave for Kochi to seek treatment. She is currently recuperating in Kochi. It is said that she will begin shooting in one week. Photos of the actor have gone viral on social media.
Amala shared a photo of herself on Instagram. Along with the photo, she wrote, “A famous proverb goes ‘No hero without a wound’, I took it seriously, so now with a broken arm Thank you all for your well wishes, my hand will heal faster now between, always hated auto-correct, but when typing text with left hand its a saviour!!

The women-centric thriller is said to be set in Western Ghats, where the protagonist loses her way. The initial posters featuring Amala Paul on a RX100 bike had created quite a buzz for the project on social media.
Apart from Amala, the film also stars popular cricket presenter Samir Kochchar. Adho Andha Paravai Pola will mark Samir’s debut in Kollywood.
