Amitabh Bachchan is the Shahenshah Of Bollywood, and there is no one who can ever come close to him in terms of stardom – not only in India but all around the world. From being the ‘Angry young man’ in his younger days in the industry to giving the younger actors today a run for their money with doing some kickass films still, this actor is a legend in his own right and the epitome of ‘hustling hard’. Completing 5 decades in the industry, and still staying relevant is not a mean task, and his Twitter game is proof. He made his film debut with the movie Saath Hindustani and went on to star in iconic films like Sholay, Don and Agneepath that became landmark characters on their own.

Not only films but Big B has become a household name hosting the reality show, Kaun Banega Crorepati. Honestly, I cannot imagine seeing anyone do a better job on the hot seat! And not to forget his famous baritone that gives you goosebumps every time you hear him speak or even sing a few lines of poetry. Now, how can one person be so multi-faceted is something we will always be in awe of.

I know it’s hard to pick one favourite Amitabh Bachchan film. For me personally, I remember seeing him first in the film, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and was quite terrified of how stern and strict he was! But he was go great in the film, and so many others i have watched over the years. Oh, how I loved him in the film Piku! I think that remains one of my most favourite movies.
