While filming an action scene, Amitabh Bachchan was doing his own stunts. He had to fall onto a table and then on the ground. First he received a very hard blow from Puneet issar while filming the fight. After that he was required to jump over a table. But when he jumped towards the table, the corner of the table hit his abdomen. He had a splenic rupture and had severe internal bleeding. He was flown out after 3 days 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.
When Iqbal is explaining to the Railway Minister that one of his porters was assaulted by one of the commuters, there is a yellow stick in front of him which moves with him.
At the shot where Amitabh Bachchan actually got hurt and had serious injury, a card appear reading the same.
