well the day before Amitabh was badly injured while shooting the film Coolie, actress Smita Patil has premonition about it. She phone called Amitabh before the accident and asked if he was ok because she was feeling weird.

Incidentally, during the 80's when Sridevi was ruling the box-office, she was often referred by some as the 'female Amitabh Bachchan'. The actress had the charisma to draw people to the film theatres at a time when people took to the big screen only to watch their favourite heroes.
The Hawa Hawai actress had worked with almost all the top actors in Bollywood and delivered many hits like Sadma, Chandni, Mr India, Tohfa, Chaalbaaz and many many more. The superstar worked in more than 250 films in various languages like Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Kannada, since her debut in 1969.
Sridevi was last seen in Mom, where the essayed the role of a mother, who took revenge from people who caused any harm to her daughter.
The Hindi film industry has truly lost a precious gem.
