Abhishek Bachchan's Emotional Post On Amitabh Bachchan's Coolie Accident!

Abhishek Bachchan shared this throwback picture of Amitabh Bachchan with “Bachchan bunch”. 

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan had suffered a near-fatal accident while shooting an action scene for Manmohan Desai’s “Coolie” in Bangalore in 1982. The shocking accident had taken him several months to fully recover. During an interview in 2012, Big B had revealed that the accident had left him clinically dead for a few minutes. The accident had almost taken his life.

Recollecting that moment when Big B was admitted to Breach Candy hospital for the same, son Abhishek Bachchan took to social media to share an emotional picture.

The actor captioned the black and white pic as, “#throwbackthursday taken in the mid 80’s (1985 if memory serves). I call it Big B and the Bachchan bunch. Dad was hospitalised with Myasthenia Gravis and my sister, cousins and I had gone to visit him. Being too young to understand what all was going on, our parents always made it out to be like an outing so that we would not be disturbed by the hospital and its workings.”

He further added, “When I used to visit my father after his accident on the sets of ‘Coolie’ in 1982, seeing him connected to many drips and machines, he used to tell me they were kites that he had got for me. I was 6 yrs old. My father was fighting for his life and all I thought about was… why isn’t he allowing me to play with these kites??? The innocence of childhood I guess.”

Recalling the Coolie accident, it happened way back in 1982 when Big B’s shooting sequence with Puneet Issar went wrong. The megastar had to fall on the table and then onto the ground for the sequence, but he missed the timing of the jump and hit his abdomen on the edge of the table, which caused him internal bleeding.

It was the most emotional moment for fans as well as for the Bachchan family. The nation mourned and fans prayed for him in temples all day and night. It was a miracle to see that the actor recovered and is doing fine now after 3 decades of the incident.
