Giving update on his condition while busy shooting for the sequel of 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle', the 'Rampage' star jokes that he is going to do his best to get co-star Kevin Hart sick.

AceShowbiz - Hollywood hardman Dwayne Johnson was recently forced to cut short filming for the "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" sequel after suffering from fluid in his lungs.

The "Rampage" star, also known as The Rock, has been busy shooting scenes for the action/adventure follow-up, but for the first time in his career, he was unable to push through his illness to stay on schedule, and had to end his work day early to get some much-needed rest.

"Got my a** kicked yesterday when I woke up with a fever," he wrote in a post on Instagram on Friday, March 22. "Saw my Dr who observed I had fluid in my lungs. Fun."

"Went to work, but for the first time in my entire career - wrestling around the world thru pain and hardcore injuries - shooting movies/touring around the world - yesterday was the first time ever I tapped out with only 3hrs left in my shooting day. So sick I couldn't finish the job. Drive home miserable (sic)."

Dwayne shared the news alongside a photo of his "magic potion" - antibiotics and vitamin supplements, but then revealed he was already on the mend, and was returning to the "Jumanji" set to continue shooting.

"The kid is back," he declared. "Going to work. Ready to finish what I f**king started and finishing this week on a strong uptick with my hard working crew."

Taking friendly aim at his friend and co-star Kevin Hart, he concluded, "I'm also gonna do my best to get @kevinhart4real sick today. Wish me luck."

Got my ass kicked yesterday when I woke up with a fever. Saw my Dr who observed I had fluid in my lungs. Fun. Went to work, but for the first time in my entire career - wrestling around the world thru pain and hardcore injuries - shooting movies/touring around the world - yesterday was the first time ever I tapped out with only 3hrs left in my shooting day. So sick I couldn’t finish the job. Drive home miserable. The kid is back. Going to work. Ready to finish what I f*cking started and finishing this week on a strong uptick with my hard working crew.
