Katrina Kaif has reportedly suffered a spinal injury on the sets of Jagga Jasoos. The actress was working on the final leg of Anurag Basu's film when she suffered the injury. She has now been advised to take complete bed rest by her doctors. 

Kaif's spokesperson was quoted by reports saying, "This is to clarify that Katrina Kaif will no longer be performing at the Zee Cine Awards, due to an accident she met with on the sets (of Jagga Jasoos). The doctors have advised her rest and to strictly avoid any strenuous physical activity or exertion. Katrina is extremely disappointed that she will not be able to work through the injury. She is recuperating and will resume work shortly after a period of rest." 

Sources suggest that something heavy fell on Kaif's neck during the shooting, and hurt her. The actress has now pulled out of her performance at the Zee Cine Awards, scheduled on 11 March. Reports suggest that Kareena Kapoor Khan is now stepping into Kaif's shoes. DNA quoted Kareena saying, "Zee Cine Awards is a celebration of the best of Indian cinema and being a part of this show truly feels special. I am sure the viewers will enjoy the act as much as I did rehearsing and performing it." 

As for Kaif, she will resume shooting for the film after her recuperation. Here's wishing her good luck.
