Simi Garewal asked Amitabh Bachchan about this in his show. At that time, Amitabh Bachchan had commented on this terrible incident.
“My intestines were injured in an accident during shooting. I had surgery. So I was in a coma. After that we went to Mumbai after five days. Another surgery was done because the stitches broke. Then I was unconscious for 12-14 hours. My BP was zero. No pulses could be found. So the doctor declared me medically dead,” he said.
Jaya Bachchan also shared her experience with Amitabh Bachchan . She said, “I went home to see my children. As soon as I returned to the hospital, my Deera told me about his condition. Then the doctor came and said that only your prayers can help me now. Then I had Hanuman Chalisa in my hand. But, I couldn’t read it.”
“Doctors were giving them injections to save them. I could see with my own eyes that the heart was pumping and trying to revive him. But, when the doctor stopped trying, I saw Amitabh’s thumb moving. They were moving and they got a new life,” he added.
