Dipika Kakar, who plays the lead role of Simar on "Sasural Simar Ka," has injured herself while shooting for a taandav sequence. The actress was not keeping well and exerted herself a bit too much for the particular sequence when she hurt her neck and back.

"Dipika was unwell and exerted herself for the taandav sequence. She injured her neck and back," a source told Mid-Day.

Recounting the incident, Dipika said: "I was down with fever and my doctor prescribed antibiotics and painkillers, along with complete rest. The next morning, I shot for a taandav scene, which made things worse. I ended up with a back and muscle spasm. But, I managed to complete the shoot. I reported to the set the following day, but the makers asked me to take the day off as I had difficulty moving. I am better now."

Meanwhile "Sasural Simar Ka," which often makes news for its bizarre plots, is set to introduce another twist in its storyline. Apparently, in the upcoming episodes, Simar will be seen sacrificing Mataji's (Jayati Bhatia) life. Simar will be influenced by a babaji, who would suggest her to sacrifice Mataji's life so as to save her unborn child.
