In the lead up to the announcement, Amitabh received praise from all quarters and now a video of the actor from the past is going viral on social media.
The video of Amitabh is being claimed to be from the time he returned home after suffering a life threatening accident on the sets of Coolie (1983). The infamous incident, which resulted in Amitabh being hospitalised is from 37 years ago, on the same date as the announcement of him receiving the award was made.
Amitabh was discharged from the hospital and he came home after undergoing a two-month-long treatment following a life-threatening accident on the sets of Coolie.
In the clip, Amitabh is seen getting out of a car as his family, fans and the media welcome him. Amitabh is seen touching the feet of his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan and this was "the first time in his life when Amitabh saw him break down". He then goes to his mother, Teji Bachchan, for 'charan sparsh' and she kisses him on the forehead.
