Abhishek Bachchan, who had suffered a freak injury during the shoot of the Bollywood remake of Oththa Seruppu Size 7, has now rejoined the sets of the movie in Chennai after undergoing surgery.

The actor had earlier posted on his social media about getting injured in an accident on the sets of the film, last Wednesday. His right hand was fractured, for which he was treated in Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai. It was reported that he underwent a major hand surgery and was asked to take rest for a month.

He was later on visited by his father Amitabh Bachchan and sister Shweta Bachchan. Several celebrities wished him on social media for a speedy recovery like Riteish Deshmukh, Genelia D’Souza, Karan Johar and Zoya Akhtar among others.

After the surgery, the actor shared a picture of himself wearing an arm-cast and giving a hearty thumbs up, ensuring them that he’s alright now. He also joked, quoting a dialogue by his father, “Mard ko dard nahin hota! (Men don’t feel pain)”, and ultimately said that it hurt a little.

He also thanked his fans and well-wishers for wishing him a speedy recovery by saying, “Thank you all for your wishes and get-well-soon messages.”

He had been shooting in Chennai for a while for the remake of the critically acclaimed movie, under the direction of Parthiban and even made time to drop by, on the sets of his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s upcoming magnus opus, Ponniyin Selvan.

The shoot of the Hindi remake of Oththa Seruppu size 7 started off on a quiet note. The Tamil movie, which was directed, produced and written by Parthiban, had just one actor - the veteran actor himself.
