Story – When Manmohan Desai altered the ending of Coolie after Amitabh Bachchan’s accident

The director, Manmohan Desai, altered the ending of Coolie after Amitabh Bachchan’s accident. Bachchan’s character was originally intended to have been killed off but after the change of script, the character lived in the end. It would have been inappropriate, said Desai, for the man who had just fended off death in real life to be killed on screen. Also, in the released film the footage of the fight scene is frozen at the critical moment, and a caption appears onscreen marking this as the instant of the actor’s injury and the ensuing publicity of the accident.
