Vivek Oberoi recalls horrifying accident while filming Yuva, praises Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn for support

Vivek Oberoi shares a touching story of Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn rushing him to the hospital after a severe motorcycle accident during the filming of Yuva.

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi recently revisited the time he worked with Abhishek Bachchan on the 2004 film Yuva. Reflecting on a significant incident from that period, Vivek recounted a horrific motorcycle accident where he broke his leg. Abhishek Bachchan, whom he affectionately called 'buddy', and Ajay Devgn were by his side, carrying him to the hospital and supporting him through the ordeal.

Speaking with Times Now, Vivek shared, “A perfectly fun day turned into pain with a terrible motorcycle accident breaking my left leg in three places. I remember my big brother Ajay and my buddy Abhishek at my side, carrying me to the hospital, being my side through the agony of broken bones tearing through my skin with blood everywhere.” He added that the accident also caused their director, Mani Ratnam, to suffer a heart attack after witnessing it.

Vivek continued, “No, worse was yet to come. I came to know Mani Anna had a heart attack after witnessing my accident. Whilst both of us were recovering in the hospital, Ajay and Abhishek were with me, lifting my spirits with jokes and painkillers in a not-so-lucid state.” It took Vivek four months to recover from his injuries. “After many complications, four months later, it felt like a reunion on the sets. The entire unit lifted my morale while I limped through shooting the songs ‘Fanaa’ and ‘Anjana Anjani’. Sometimes I wonder how we pulled it off,” he reflected.

Directed by Mani Ratnam, Yuva resonated with audiences in both its Hindi and Tamil versions. The film depicted the lives of three young men entangled in state politics, with standout performances by Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, and Vivek Oberoi. The film received several awards, including Filmfare Awards for Best Supporting Actor (Abhishek Bachchan), Best Supporting Actress (Rani Mukerji), Best Film – Critics, and Best Screenplay (Mani Ratnam).
