‘Coolie’ ac­ci­dent was a re­birth: Amitabh Bachchan

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan (right) says he is grate­ful to ev­ery­body who prayed for him dur­ing his ac­ci­dent on the sets of Coolie, ex­actly 33 years ago. The 72-year-old took to Twit­ter to share de­tails about the ac­ci­dent. The ac­tor said he saw his fa­ther, Hari­vansh Rai Bachchan, in tears for the first time af­ter his re­turn from the hos­pi­tal.

“Au­gust 2nd 1982... I live af­ter Coolie ac­ci­dent... On re­turn­ing home saw Fa­ther in tears for first time ever (sic),” Bachchan wrote, post­ing a pic­ture (inset) where he is touch­ing his fa­ther’s feet.

Bachchan suf­fered a near-fa­tal ac­ci­dent while shoot­ing an ac­tion scene for Man­mo­han De­sai’s Coolie in Ban­ga­lore in 1982. The Piku star thanked his fans for their prayers and hailed his life af­ter the ac­ci­dent as a re­birth.

“To all that give me prayers and wish... Au­gust 2nd my re­birth in sense... I fold my hands in grat­i­tude... The de­tails of those times spent at the hos­pi­tal are dif­fi­cult to de­scribe, and have been done of­ten enough. It would not give me plea­sure to de­scribe them again... But it would never stop me from ac­cept­ing that had it not been the prayers of mil­lions that went up from home and across the world, I would not have been writ­ing this blog... (sic),” he wrote.
