Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
While filming an action scene, Amitabh Bachchan was doing his own stunts. He had to fall onto a table and then on the ground. But when he jumped towards the table, the corner of the table hit his abdomen. He had a splenic rupture and lost a large amount of blood. He was flown out and needed urgent operation (splenectomy) and was critically ill for a while. A rumor spread that he had died from the accident. The nation (most of it anyway) mourned. Later there were mile-long queues of well-wishing fans outside the hospital where he was recuperating.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Manmohan Desai originally proposed a sad ending for the film. Amitabh was to die in the climax, but it was decided that after Amitabh's real-life fight with death during the shoot, the audience would not accept his death in the movie. So the climax was changed and a happy ending was shot.
