The film became famous even before its release when Amitabh Bachchan was critically injured on 26 July 1982 in the intestines while filming a fight scene with co-star Puneet Issar which almost cost him his life. The crew was filming the shot at University Campus in Bangalore
. His accident received wide world coverage and hit the headlines in the UK
, something unheard of at the time, and many Indians prayed in temples or offered to sacrifice their own limbs to save him. Nevertheless he spent many months recovering and resumed filming later that year after a long period of recuperation.
Bachchan resumed shooting and remarkably in the final cut of the film, the fight scene during which he is injured is frozen and a message appears marking this as the scene in which he was injured.
Due to Bachchan's injury, the ending was changed. In the original, Amitabh died after Kader Khan shot him. But later on, after the injury-and-recovery episode, Manmohan Desai
, thinking that this would have a negative impact on the movie as well as a bad feeling in the audience, decided to change the ending. The modified ending has the hero recover after his operation.
