Adithya the drive will likely never be able to run as a drive with an OS. However if you connect the drive via external hard drive enclosure you may be able to recover data all is not necessarily lost . You probably created bad sectors when you moved the actuator arm across the platters. When you moved the arm did you turn the platters? if not you may have damaged the arm itself in which case the arm will be toast . If the arm returns to the stuck position then there also no point in continuing . but this[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5Y7BniaRXg|video] could be of some assistance to you .Once again you wont be able to depend on the hard drive to boot up an OS but you may be able to rescue data from it.
