Sareeka Dhillon, who plays the role of Rashmi in Life OK's Ghulaam, was rushed to the hospital after actor Vikkas Manaktala accidentally hit her with a saw.

As per the sources from the show, Sareeka and her co-actor Vikkas Manaktala were rehearsing a scene where he had to hit her with a saw. Unfortunately Vikkas mistakenly hurt Sareeka with the saw's pointed end, which bruised her face and blood started oozing out from the wound. Looking at the blood, she was immediately rushed to the hospital.

A week back, Sareeka's co-star Param Singh was hospitalised after he suffered a severe hand injury while shooting for an action scene and now it's Sareeka.

Sareeka narrated the incident and said,"Vikkas and I, we both were rehearsing for the scene where he had to hit me with a saw. Unfortunately when he lifted the saw its end point hit my face and there was blood all over. The production house and my co-actors rushed me to the hospital and the doctor has advised me to not shoot for three to four days as I cannot use make up. But, the scenes are such that the makers can't avoid my scenes so they have incorporated me getting hurt in the show as well."

The actress further added, "It is getting very difficult for me to shoot the scenes as I cannot wash my face because of the cut. The makeup is adding to the pain. I am just glad to god that it did not hurt my eyes."

We wish Sareeka a speedy recovery.
