Even if Bollywood celebs perform the scariest stunts in movies, they are still human beings at the end of the day. Celebs have been through it all, from getting sick to dealing with major injuries. Actor Salman Khan recently revealed during an interview on his birthday that he was bitten by a snake at his Panvel farmhouse. So much so, he had to be even hospitalised for six hours.
