The veteran actor said that the team of doctors, who flew in to Jodhpur, where he was shooting for Thugs of Hindostan at the Mehrangarh Fort, had treated him and that he was back in action. Big B had earlier suffered a rib fracture on the sets of the film, and had even had to visit a hospital recently during the Film City schedule.
