Indian megastar Amitabh Bachchan, has been left in immense pain after suffering a hairline rib fracture from an accident on the set of the movie Department.

The actor, fondly called Big B, posted on his blog on Saturday (24 September), "There is a fracture in the rib, albeit hairline; it cannot be given any treatment, for such ailments are left to heal on their own. That takes care of the next 3 to 4 weeks because that is the recognised healing period. Bear the pain and that is it. Damn!"

It's the old hot water bottle remedy for Big B as he suffers through the pain. "The hot water bottle has become my greatest companion for the last two days and, with the results of the CT scan, it looks like I shall stay with it much longer than I had imagined. It's such a useful element in the house," he added.

The Bollywood actor also revealed how the water bottle brings back memories of his hometown. "And from the time I realized the difference between hot and cold, the hot water bottle has never undergone any change in size or shape. It has been like this for donkey's years. The winter in Allahabad and Delhi are distinct reminders of it," he added. Get well soon Big B.
