“Yes, Abhishek is back in Mumbai and will resume work soon after he has recovered. He is fine now and resting at home,” the actor’s publicist told IANS.
The 35-year-old actor posted on his Twitter account: “Had a fall whilst filming a small action sequence in Jaipur. Have come back to Mumbai now and will resume work at the earliest…I will be fine. Can’t say the same for the rickshaw!!! Banged him up good! Hehe…Thank you again for all the get well soon messages…Lots of love and gratitude.”
“Bol Bachchan” also stars Ajay Devgn, Asin and Prachi Desai.
On Wednesday while shooting, Abhishek was running between hand rickshaws, missed a step and hit a metal piece on the rickshaw. He started bleeding profusely and Rohit immediately put ice on it and sugar on Abhishek’s tongue so that the bleeding stopped, his father Amitabh Bachchan explained on his blog.
“Once in a while you get that call at an odd hour from the near and dear and you somehow sense that all is not well. And so it was today with that call while on set from Abhishek, ‘Hi Pop, how you doing .. all well … okay .. I have had a fall and am hurt .. doing a chase sequence for the shoot .. am coming back by the first flight .. have spoken to all, do not panic I am well ..’,” Amitabh posted on his blog big.bigadda.com.
“What does one do or react or feel is one of the most difficult moments in the life of any parent. You are away from your son – he being in Jaipur – you cannot assess the damage, you are worried,” he added.
Amitabh added: “Four more days before the stitches can be removed .. doctor said will leave a scar, but will merge into the skin gradually.”
