Kaun Banega Crorepati 13: Amitabh Bachchan reveals that nobody can feel his pulse after he was operated upon his wrist

Bollywood News

In the latest episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, host Amitabh Bachchan welcomes guests from the medical profession. A contestant named Sarbjeet Singh takes the hot seat, who is a school teacher. While he was playing, a question related to pulse rate came. Then Big B goes to check his own pulse rate and says, ‘I don’t have any’.

Later to clarify this, Big B shared an incident related to this. He said, “After I met with an accident, doctors operated my wrist, and since then I can’t feel my pulse on my wrist. Sometimes I joke with others to check my pulse and then they get shocked unable to find it. I find it funny at times.”

For the unversed, in 2010, Big B wrote about this accident in his blog. A part from his blog read as, “The very next year after the myasthenia a bomb exploded in my hand, yes the left again, at the time of Diwali. It was a spurious ‘anar’, the sparkling fountain, and as I was lighting it exploded in my hand. The entire palm and the area below my wrist burnt up into almost a pulp. The left hand had melted into a fist shape, with nothing left of it. No fingers, no nails, no nothing. The process of treatment started, I was in Delhi at the time and in the middle of a film shoot in Chennai. The film was Inquilab.”

He further wrote, “There was a deadline on when the film had to finish and I was desperate to get back. The doctors told me I would not heal before the time I was asking. I was stubborn. I asked them to do the best they could and leave me. Delicate procedures to start separating each finger from the melted mass was an intricate and very painful process. Because of my recent surgeries under general anesthesia, they were reluctant to give me another one to perform the intricate work on my hand. I told them to do it live. When the pain became too unbearable I would tell them to stop and continue the next day. After days of work on it and some basics being achieved, I sought leave and reported for work, hand in bandage.”

Back to the game, after Sarbjeet correctly answers the question worth Rs 3,20,00, the game ends for the day.
