Early Life

Although Amitabh Bachchan’s unwavering popularity makes it difficult to imagine that he was ever anything but famous, this legendary actor’s success story is all about troughs and crests. Unlike many superstars, Amitabh Bachchan saw failure at the peak of his career and struggled in a mature age as an actor and claimed back his throne of super-stardom in the second phase of his acting career.

It is a little-known fact that in early life, Amitabh Bachchan, who aspired to become an actor, was rejected for his voice, gangly height and not having a ‘camera conducive face’. History is well-versed in irony because today, Amitabh Bachchan is known across India and the world at large for his baritone voice, commanding height and striking face.

Career

In 1973, Amitabh Bachchan landed his biggest, most legendary role in Zanjeer. This film also helped establish his ‘angry young man’ image among the adoring masses. He also made Abhimaan with his wife Jaya Bachchan that had a successful run at the box office. He appeared in several films like Deewar, Sholay, Kabhie Kabhie, Amar Akbar Anthony, Mr. Natwarlal, The Great Gambler etc. that helped secure his position as the top actor.
