Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek got injured when they went to visit ailing Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray last night.

Bachchans were amongst the first to rush to Matoshree to enquire about the health condition of Thackeray, who is on life support system.

He said on Twitter: "Yes both Abhishek and me were injured with cuts, but are fine and back home ... the doctors at 'Matoshree' attended on us !"

About Thackeray's health, he said that Thackeray was a fighter and that he needed prayers right now.

Meanwhile, Thackeray's son Uddhav appealed for calm in his address to those assembled outside their residence.

He said, "Balasaheb has strong will power. We will come out of this problem. Don't trust rumours. Make peace We are hopeful. You should be hopeful as well. Let's pray for Balasaheb."

Traffic to the residence of Thackeray has been blocked and there is heavy presence of police personnel in the area.

This comes hours after reports said that the Shiv Sena supremo is on continuous oxygen and not eating anything.
