Amitabh's Previous Injuries 

Prior to Diwali 2022, Bachchan revealed through his personal blog about an injury sustained to his leg, requiring hospitalization for stitching.

In 2018, while shooting for Thugs of Hindostan, he endured a shoulder injury during an action sequence, albeit not severe. Despite advice to use a body double, Bachchan insisted on performing the scene himself.

Moreover, in 2000, Bachchan contracted Hepatitis B due to a blood transfusion during treatment for injuries sustained on the sets of Coolie. This incident led to liver cirrhosis, resulting in the surgical removal of 75% of his infected liver in 2012.
