The actor shared a monochrome photograph that was taken after his accident on the set of 'Coolie'.

Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter following now stands at 45 million. The actor celebrated the milestone with a throwback picture taken after an accident on the set of his 1983 release, Coolie.

The black and white picture features his father, late poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan, and son Abhishek Bachchan. The actor wrote, “The caption informs of 45 million on Twitter... thank you Jasmine, but the picture says a lot more... Its the moment I came home surviving death after the 'Coolie' accident... Its the first time ever I saw my Father breaking down ! A concerned little Abhishek looks on!"

During a fight sequence on the sets of Manmohan Desai's Coolie with co-actor Puneet Issar, Amitabh was supposed to fall on a table first and then on to the ground. However due to an error in timing Puneet ended up hitting Amitabh's abdomen and he landed on the edge of the table leading to internal bleeding. He was taken to hospital and surgery took place. The recovery took several months.

Currently, the 78-year-old actor is busy shooting for his next titled MayDay.
