Amitabh Bachchan suffers from hairline rib fracture !

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who recently suffered a minor injury while shooting Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Department’, says he has got a minor fracture in the ribcage.
Bachchan, 68, resumed shooting just two days after he got hurt while filming an action sequence.

Amitabh tweeted-

So early morning before setting off to shoot I spoke to the doctor and he advised we do an X-Ray after my return from work. Off to Nanavati and under the scanner and out of it in minutes and now confirmed… there is a fracture in the rib…albeit hairline

Bachchan says he has to bear the pain for next one month as the ailment has no treatment.

It cannot be given any treatment, for, such ailments are left to heal on their own and this one shall be no exception. That takes care of the next 3-4 weeks because that is the recognized healing period. Bear the pain and that is it.

Bachchan’s injury comes soon after his son Abhishek hurt himself near the eye while shooting for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Bol Bachchan’ in Jaipur.
