Big B’s ‘rebirth’ post Coolie accident
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has thanked everyone who prayed for him when he suffered a near fatal accident on this day 33 years ago on the set of Coolie. The accident was his ‘rebirth in (a) sense’.
The now 72-year-old was in a hospital here for almost two months.
“August <g data-gr-id="28">2nd</g> 1982... I live after Coolie accident... On returning home saw father in tears for <g data-gr-id="27">first</g> time ever. To all that give me prayers and wish... August 2nd my rebirth in a sense... I fold my hands in gratitude,” Amitabh tweeted on Sunday.
He also tweeted a photograph in which he is touching the feet of his father-cum-late poet Harivanshrai Bachchan, who is seen with tears in his eyes.
While filming a fight sequence with co-star Puneet Issar on the set of Manmohan Desai’s Coolie, Amitabh was supposed to fall on the table first and then on to the ground.
However due to a wrong judgement, Puneet ended up hitting Amitabh’s abdomen and he landed on the edge of the table due to which internal bleeding started.
