  • Amitabh Bachchan

    Without doubt the most dreadful of all injuries that have taken place while shooting. Big B was filming a fight scene in Manmohan Desai's 'Coolie' (1983) with co-star Puneet Issar. As per the script, Amitabh was to fall on the table and then on to the ground, but he mistimed the jump and hit his abdomen on the edge of the table. This caused internal bleeding. While being treated, the superstar was declared clinically dead for a couple of minutes, but almost miraculously, recovered.
