Actor Sanjay Dutt has reportedly been injured while filming Bhoomi in Chambal, according to mid-day. Mr Dutt, 57, was shooting an action scene when he injured. An x-ray at a local hospital reportedly revealed a hairline rib fracture.”The action sequence, which was being filmed in Chambal, had him being attacked by a group of goons. In the midst of that scene, he felt a stabbing pain in his ribs and popped a painkiller for relief.
He continued the shoot, but the pain only grew worse.” The source also told mid-day that Sanjay Dutt has been put on medication and advised rest. Bhoomi, directed by Omung Kumar, is Sanjay Dutt’s first film after he completed his five-year jail term in February 2016. Some weeks ago, Sanjay Dutt’s bodyguards were involved in a scuffle with the media while the film was shooting in Agra.
In a statement, Mr Dutt said, “I was not there on the sets when the incident took place. My pack-up was done long time back.Had I been there, the incident wouldn’t have taken place…Had I been there, I would have sorted the issue with love and my ‘jaadu ki jhappi,'” reported a news agency.
Filming in Agra was stalled previously after the crowd that had gathered to watch became unruly. Bhoomi tells the story of a father and a daughter, who is played by actress Aditi Rao Hydari. The film is scheduled to release on August 4.
