Renowned as the original ‘Angry Young Man’ of ‘Bollywood’, Amitabh Bachchan is to the Hindi film industry what Sachin Tendulkar is to Indian Cricket. He began his film career in 1969 with the movie ‘Saat Hindustani’. In 1973, his film ‘Zanjeer’ was released. In this, he played a new kind of hero who fought the injustices in the system. With this movie, he earned the epithet ‘Angry Young Man’.
Amitabh initially worked with a shipping firm in Kolkata before moving to Mumbai in 1968. He had applied for a job in the All India Radio, but was rejected ironically because of his deep voice, which has now become his signature.
He went on to score major hits with movies such as ‘Anand’ (1970) and ‘Namak Haram’ (1973). Amitabh came on to the scene when there was a great deal of disaffection in the country, especially among the educated unemployed. In the subsequent years, he went on to give several major hits including ‘Deewaar’ (1975), in which he played the role of a mafia don, besides ‘Trishul’ (1978), ‘Don’ (1978), ‘Natwarlal’ (1979), ‘Suhaag’ (1979), ‘The Great Gambler’ (1980), ‘Kaalia’ (1981), ‘Silsila’ (1981), ‘Shakti’ (1982).
Though he played the role of the angry young man to perfection, he excelled in all types of roles whether romantic or comic. In 1984, he joined politics and was elected to the Parliament from Allahabad. He did not complete his tenure and resigned from his seat. He won the National Award for his role in ‘Agneepath’ (1990).
After suffering a slump in fortunes, he shot back into the limelight when he hosted the popular quiz programme ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. He also acted in the Hollywood movie ‘The Great Gatsby’ (released in 2013). Amitabh Bachchan was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and Padma Vibhushan in 2015.
