    Manmohan Desai made most of the publicity, and while some accused him of cashing in, he defended himself saying he was "satisfying the public". However, when the film resumed shooting--Amitabh insisted on restarting with the interrupted fight scene----Desai changed the ending. He had originally planned for Iqbal, the Coolie, to die, but now that in real life Amitabh had escaped death, in the film he could not die, and he therefore was allowed to live . The moment was also highlighted .

    " His struggle for life gripped the country. Crowds kept vigil outside the Bombay hospital where he lay, pierced by tubes and fed by drips. Public ptayer meetings were called and people gathered in their thousands to plead for him. Advertising hoardings were rented to carry messages urging the hero to survive. The Prime Minister and her son visited the bedside. Hospital bulletins on his condition were front-page news every day ."-----Trevor Fishlock, The Times.

    When the doctors saw Amitabh, they felt he must be operated immediately if he was to survive. He was flown to Mumbai, going in and out of consciousness, unable to speak and communicating through notes on chits of paper and thirsting for water, which was being denied him. At Santa Cruz air-port, Yash Chopra had organised an ambulence to come to the tarmac to take him to Breach Candy Hospital . By this time this real life drama had united the nation in grief in a way nothing else had done before .

    On July, 25, 1982, while shooting a fight scene, Amitabh took a blow in the solar plexus from his fellow actor, Puneet Isaar. The blow had caught him unware, and it did not help that he caught the edge of a sharp table as he landed and badly injured himself. He staggered out to the lawn and lay down . The crew, not realising what had happened, thought he was faking. But he was in acute pain. Although he walked to the car he was rushed to the hospital where he was put on morphine.
