There was no sign of life for several days and then on August 2, 1982, the doctors treating Mr Bachchan injected adrenaline straight into his heart. His actress wife Jaya Bachchan, who was present with him at that time, saw one of his toes move and said: "Look, he's alive" and that's how August 2 became Mr Bachchan's "second birthday."
As of now, Amitabh Bachchan is filming Thugs Of Hindostan (a Yash Raj Films project) and 102 Not Out, co-starring Rishi Kapoor.
