Famous. Rich. Beautiful.
But celebrities are also human beings, and they’re just as likely to fall prey to diseases as a common man.

After his famous accident, while shooting an action sequence for Coolie in July 1982, Amitabh Bachchan lost a lot of blood. He was declared medically dead but made an incredible recovery after a couple of months and resumed filming later that year.
