Amitabh Bachchan biography

Amitabh Bachchan, popularly known as the angry young man or the Big B of Indian cinema (Bollywood), was born in Allahabad to Teji Bachchan and Harivansh Rai Bachchan, the acclaimed Hindi poet. Amitabh did his schooling from the Sherwood College, Nainital and thereafter moved to the Delhi University to pursue graduation. Before getting into the glittering world of movies, Amitabh tried his luck as stage actor, radio announcer and Freight Company executive. It is interesting to note that many of the producers and directors, whom Amitabh approached initially, rejected his voice quality (a voice that has provided narrations for several films).
Amitabh's first film "Saat Hindustani" sank at the Box Office. It was  "Zanjeer" movie catapulted him to the status of "angry young man" of Hindi cinema. There was no looking back after the success of Zanjeer as people saw in Amitabh Bachchan their own self- the angry young man that was fighting against the corrupt system and the power brokers, one film after another. Amitabh's emergence coincided with the typical situation prevailing in the 70's- unemployment, frustration and poor quality of life. Amitabh Bachchan emerged as a different kind of action hero, a Messiah, a Superhero, who appeared like an answer to all people's problems. Amitabh, on his part churned out one hit after another including Zanjeer, Deewar Namak Haram, Sharaabi, Shakti, Lawaaris, Kaalia, Shaan, Kaala Patthar, Trishul, Don, Amar Akbar Anthony, Sholay, Deewaar etc.
