Actor Jayasurya suffered an injury on his leg during the shooting of ‘Captain’, the biopic on former Indian football team captain V P Sathyan.

The filming of the movie was progressing at the Calicut University Stadium in Thenhipalam when Jayasurya sustained the injury.

The crew was filming a Santhosh Trophy match sequence and Jayasurya injured his right leg during a tackling scene.

Immediately, a doctor arrived at the stadium and administered him first aid. The filming has been temporarily halted as the actor was advised rest for a week.

Director Prajesh Sen said the injury is not serious, adding that the filming would resume within one week.

The movie produced by T L George is being filmed at Kozhikode and nearby areas.
