The crew was shooting for a fight sequence for the film’s climax in Chambal where Sanjay had to fight with 20 other men. Sandeep Singh, the film’s producer, told Hindustan Times that Sanjay had to jump and land on the ground for the sequence when he hit his chest with his elbow. Though he felt a slight pain, he did not take it too seriously, Sandeep added.
The crew is scheduled to shoot continuously for seven days in Chambal. “We just gave him some ice and continued to shoot as he did not reveal the level of pain he must have felt. We even had to retake the shot and we did. Later, it started paining a lot and we called a doctor. Even after the X Ray was done and we got to know that there is a hairline fracture, Sanjay came on the sets and insisted that we continue the shoot,” the producer said.
“We told him that we should take a break for three days, but he didn’t agree. Finally, we had to tell him that it is an off, just to ensure he takes some rest. Tomorrow again, we have a shoot near Rajasthan border and we are apprehensive of how things will turn out,” he added.
Directed by Oomung Kumar, Bhoomi will mark Sanjay Dutt’s comeback to the silver screen after PK (2014). The film also stars Aditi Rao Hydari as Dutt’s daughter. Shekhar Suman, Sharad Kelkar and TV actor Sidhant Gupta also feature in Bhoomi.
Bhoomi is a revenge drama that centres around a father daughter relationship that will be shot entirely in Uttar Pradesh.
