Bachchan said that Thackeray has stood by him in his tough times. ''When I was hurt during the shoot of my film Coolie and I was hospitalized in a critical stage in Bengaluru, then shifted back to Mumbai, but I did not get an ambulance at that time, due to rain, but Shiv Sena's ambulance was available"
