A Corrie star has posted pictures of his bruised and bloodied face sustained in a freak accident.Actor Qasim Akhtar, who plays Zeedan Nazir in the ITV soap, was training on his patio and passed out, injuring his head when he fell. He posted a gory picture of his bloody right eye on Instagram but later said he was “counting his blessings” the injury was not more serious.
He wrote: “So ive just got out of AnE, training in the garden earlier had a sudden rush of blood to my head an hit the stone deck face first after passing out. Great start to the weekend.”
He later added: “don’t know what happened. I think I just got an unusual amount of blood rush to my head and fainted.”
Weatherfield co-stars Kym Marsh, Jane Danson, and Sally Ann Matthews all sent well-wishes. A concerned Kym, who plays Corrie favourite Michelle Connor, tweeted: “@QasAkhta with!?!?!? Are you ok doll?”
