Megastar Amitabh Bachchan 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 actor took to Twitter to share the details about the accident that injured him badly.
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," Bachchan wrote, alongside a picture where he is touching the feet of his father.
Bachchan suffered a near-fatal accident while shooting an action scene for Manmohan Desai's "Coolie" in Bangalore in 1982, which took him several months to fully recover. The "Piku" star thanked his fans for their prayers and hailed his life post 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..."
