Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Sanjay Dutt has suffered a hairline fracture while filming his comeback project "Bhoomi," but the actor has decided to not take a break from the shoot.

The Omung Kumar-directed movie marks the 57-year-old star's first big-screen outing after he completed his jail term and the actor wants to wrap the film as per the schedule.

"Sanjay sir has had a hairline fracture in his hand but he wants to complete the major chunk of the film by the end of March. He is taking rest, but will not be taking a break from the film's schedule as he doesn't want to disturb the shoot," a source from the production unit told PTI.

The revenge drama revolves around the relationship between a father and daughter. Actress Aditi Rao Hydari is cast in the role of Dutt's daughter. Actor Sharad Kelkar will be seen in the role of the antagonist.

"Bhoomi" is slated to release on August 4.

Producer Sandeep Singh said the actor received injuries in rib cage during action when the climax scene was being shot in the Chambal ravines.

"He must have been in a lot of pain, but he did not stop. Later on, when we went to the doctor, the x-ray showed a hairline fracture. We wanted to stop the shoot, but Baba insisted. Really commendable on his part," he said.

Producer Bhushan Kumar added, "We really appreciate that Sanjay has been shooting non-stop despite the excruciating pain that he must be in. He is truly a phenomenal person and actor.
