A Holi oopsie took place in the Bachchan household – the ‘Holika’ bonfire was lit a day early at the family bungalow Jalsa, Amitabh Bachchan revealed in his blog on Tumbler. “The ‘holika’ was lit last night at Jalsa, there being a date confusion on the day for Holi. It is now done. Holi being celebrated today and tomorrow – so in this confusion much of what could have been done was not done,” wrote the 80-year-old actor. “I rest and repair,” he added – Big B is currently recovering from an on-set injury, “But my wishes for the celebration of this joyous festival is with you – may the colours of Holi bring the multifaceted colours of life in your life.”

Holi celebrations were likely subdued for Amitabh Bachchan this year after he suffered a torn rib cage on the set of Project K in Hyderabad. Big B was injured while filming an action scene after which he received medical care at a local hospital and was then flown home to Mumbai. Movement and breathing are painful, Big B revealed in a previous blog post in which he asked fans not to gather at Jalsa for their Sunday meet and greet ritual. It will take the actor weeks to recover completely.
Project K co-stars Prabhas, Deepika Padukone and Disha Patani, and will release next year.
