Big B injured, fans sends recovery wishes

While shooting an action sequence for Ramgopal Varma’s ‘Department’, Amitabh Bachchan suffered a minor injury. Big B tweeted about the incident, "A minor incident on the set during a semi-action sequence, got hit on rib cage, some damage inside, pain on breathing, bearable. Guess it's the season for injuries... first Abhishek, now moi... happens... will repair on its own said doc."

No sooner Big B posted the news, he was bombarded with concerned messages, Bachchan tweeted: "People of Twitterworld, relax, should never have mentioned... just an accidental hit by either an elbow or the butt of a carbine."

Some fans pray for his speedy recovery while some lashes out at RGV for asking him to shoot an action scene at this age.

A fan tweeted: "RGV crazy to ask you to do a action sequence. Do not test your body, Amitabh Ji. Hope it heals soon."

In the movie, Bachchan plays a gangster-turned-politician role.

Varma said, "I really didn't know about this till I read his tweets. He shot with me for over an hour after he hurt himself." He later tweeted to Big B: "O hell, Sarkar, and you never told me about this."
