After tempting fate a couple of times, Sanjay Dutt has sustained a rib injury while shooting for a hardcore action scene in his comeback film, Bhoomi.

An X-ray confirmed a hairline fracture, said sources close to the star.

''The action sequence, which was being filmed in Chambal, had him being attacked by a group of goons. In the midst of that scene, he felt a stabbing pain in his ribs and popped a painkiller for relief. He continued the shoot, but the pain only grew worse,'' an insider reveals.

Finally, Dutt decided to make a quick visit to a local hospital and get an X-ray done. ''The doctor confirmed a hairline fracture. He is on medication and has been advised complete rest. However, he is eager to wrap up the shoot by the month-end,'' the source adds.

Earlier this month, mid-day had reported how Dutt had suffered a minor bruise on his head after hitting a pole. The actor took a few hours off shoot to rest. A doctor was brought on set for a quick check-up. Dutt was later taken to a local hospital to get a few tests done.

The actor, who was convicted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, had served a 42-month sentence at Pune's Yerwada jail. He was released on February 25 last year, 103 days ahead of his prison term.

Directed by Omung Kumar, 'Bhoomi' is Dutt's first project since he completed his jail term last February.
