CHENNAI: Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar sprained his neck while shooting for an action sequence here. Since the injury was minor, he completed the shot without taking a break, according to a source.

He was shooting for his yet-untitled 56th Tamil film on Friday.

"Ajith sir continued shooting despite his injury. He had sprained his neck in an action sequence but didn't bother to stop shooting. After the shot, he received medical attention," a source from the film's unit, told IANS.

Injuries are not new to Ajith, who is known for shooting action scenes in films without body doubles, even if it's risky.

In the past, he has sustained minor injuries on the sets of his films "Billa" and "Arrambam".

Being directed by Siva, the film also features Shruti Haasan and Kabir Duhan Singh in the lead roles.

Produced by A.M. Rathnam, the film is scheduled for release during Diwali.
