Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is currently shooting for Ramgopal Varma’s Department, says he has suffered a minor chest injury during a semi action sequence on the sets of the film today.
"A minor incident on set during semi action sequence…got hit on chest rib cage, some damage inside, pain on breathing, bearable!," the 68-year-old wrote on Twitter.
A few days back his son Abhishek had hurt himself while filming a chase sequence in Jaipur for Bol Bachchan.
"Guess its the season for injury… first Abhishek, now moi… happens… will repair on its own said doc .. he must be right!! (sic)," Bachchan further tweeted.
But the news let loose a volley of tweets from concerned fans and the veteran actor quickly tried to pacify them.
"Okaay I seem to have let loose a cannon !! It will heal… do not worry… all shall be well (sic)," Bachchan wrote.
"People of twitter world, relax! Should never have mentioned… just an accidental hit by either an elbow or the butt of a carbine," he added.
Bachchan had suffered a near fatal accident on the sets of Coolie in 1982 while filming a fight scene with co-actor Puneet Issar, which prompted hundreds of fans queuing up at the hospital and praying for his recovery. He was declared clinically dead at one point, but says that the prayers of his countless fans literally brought him back to life.
He spent many months recovering and resumed filming later that year after a long period of recuperation.(PTI)
