For many fans, any reports of an accident related to Bachchan’s senior bring back the tragic memories of the one he suffered during the shooting of ‘Coolie’ in 1982.  Bachchan suffered a near-death experience and was declared ‘clinically dead’. He got injured while shooting a fight sequence with Puneet Issar for the film Coolie. During the fight scene shoot, Puneet mistakenly punched hard in the actor’s stomach, which led to serious internal injuries. He was in a coma for several days.
