A particular word or a phrase is not enough to express ‘MR AMITABH BACHCHAN’.The ups and downs in his career can be compared to a common man.He was rejected by air for his voice and today this voice carries credibility of all those brands which he endorses.Many actors went for early morning dubbing to make their voice sound similar or nearer to BIG B. After starting low he reached superstar with the release of Zanjeer. A role which was refused by by leading actors of 70’s. He tried in politics to help out his friend Late Rajiv Gandhi. A true friendship indeed but unfortunately his name came up in scams. He left it to join films again.He created the box office records with films lilke “HUM”, won the national award with the performance in “Agneepath”. He then went to self imposed exile while the khans were busy making hay. His comeback took place again in 1997.
Unfortunately this time he could not create ripples at the box office.People started writing him off. In a country like India where movie stars always have a upperhand on television stars, he anchored “KBC” which proved to be a grand success. He was back with a overwhelming response.The white french cut he carries became a craze. People started using “lock kiya jaye”, “Confident”,in their regular conversation.This was followed by hits like ‘Mohabattein’, ‘Akheen’,’K3G’ and most recently ‘Baghban’.Today he is the busiest star in bollywood with films like ‘Sarkar’,’Black’ in the pipeline.He is endorsing brands
and was recently made UNICEF’s brand ambassador . Now tell me if someone after seeing so many ups and downs comes with his head high, isn’t it our duty to salute this legend…
