Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan were among those who visited Shiv Sena supreme Bal Thackeray late Wednesday night. Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan were hurt while fighting their way into Matoshree to see Shiv Sena supreme Bal Thackeray.
Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, "both Abhishek and I were injured with cuts, but are fine and back home ... the doctors at 'Matoshree' attended on us!''
Bal Thackeray had visited Bachchan when he was in hospital after his near fatal accident during the shooting of Coolie. Bachchan tweeted, "When I fought for my life after Coolie accident, he came to visit me in hospital, with a cartoon he had drawn - Yamraj defeated !''
Thackeray had also helped rush Amitabh Bachchan to hospital after the accident. "When I was flown in to Mumbai from Bangalore in semi conscious state after Coolie accident, it was his ambulance that took me to BC. Yamraj - God of Death, defeated by me..wish I was as proficient a cartoonist as he, for tonight I would wish to draw that for him," Amitabh tweeted.
Bachchan also recalls his meeting with Thackeray after the Bofors Scandal. He tweets, "When the Bofors Scandal accusations on us were at its peak, he called me home and asked 'tell me the truth, are you involved ?' When I said "NO !", he said 'Then do not worry about anything. I am with you. You are an actor, go do what you are best at'. "
Bachchan's association with Thackeray goes back to the time when the actor and Jaya Bhaduri were just married. He tweeted, "When Jaya and I married, he called us to his house .. and the rituals that were conducted was of the 'bahu' coming home !''
