She opened up to host Jimmy Kimmel, 49, about her recent on-set scare where she hit her head and suffered a concussion while filming a stunt for her hit ABC drama on Jan. 12. “It was something so silly, I’ve done so many stunts before in my life. It was just a rainy day, we were running against time and needed to finish our day and rainy road, rubber boots. I fell and hit my head on the road,” she revealed.
“They took me to the E.R. They told me it was a concussion. I had to go home and my housekeeper had to wake me up every hour because you can’t sleep after a concussion,” she said, sharing that her hospital experience “was like Grey’s Anatomy,” with all the lights shining on her while being examined. As for what it felt like, “You see stars and it’s not fun. I got dizzy and it’s my first concussion so I was very starstruck about it,” she joked.
Her mom read about her concussion in the news and immediately got on the first plane from Mumbai to rush to her daughter’s side. “I didn’t call until the doctor cleared me and by then it was everywhere!” she shared. Priyanka’s mom was there in the audience to watch her appearance, so the camera cut to her and it was so cute how proud she is of her talented daughter.
