In 1982, Amitabh was seriously injured on the sets of Coolie. He was hospitalised and underwent multiple surgeries for the near-fatal injury.
Here, we see him recovering, thanks to a lot of TCL from his children.
About three years later, Amitabh was hospitalised once again. This time, he was admitted for a condition called Mysthenia Gravis, and he often had these tiny visitors for company.
'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. 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,' Abhishek writes.
