Career of Amitabh Bachchan

After completing his graduation, he traveled to Calcutta for better earning opportunities. He got his first job as an engineer at Shaw Wallace and earned 500 rupees.

This pay was not enough to fulfill what he deserves. He packed his bags in 1968 and booked a ride to Bombay, The City of Dreams with no prior knowledge of what to do but he wants to do something he likes and desires.

The pre-stardom days were not favorable for him. He was rejected for his tall height and appearance. He wandered for days in search of work and was facing a series of rejections. In 1969, he got the job as a voice narrator in the film Bhuvan Shome. He made his film debut in Saat Hindustani as one of the seven protagonists.

1971 marked the year of his biggest break as Babu Moshaye in Anand made him earn a name in the film industry. He got many movies offered to him that year but they didn’t go well for him. Another level of challenge landed on him.

He was seen as a “failed newcomer” in the industry with more flop movies than hits at the age of 30. He never gave up and kept acting in movies and polishing his skills.

In 1973, he acted in Zanjeer in a double role which galvanized his persona of “angry young man” in the Indian film industry. He found his calling in the movie by portraying characters who came from humble backgrounds and fighting against corrupt systems. Films like Sholay and Deewar solidified his angry young man image more than ever.

He acted in movies like Namak Haraam, Abhimaan, Chupke Chupke, Shakti, and many other movies which were box office hits and made his fame rise and become a mass favorite of the youth at that time.

He also dabbled into politics from 1984 to 1987 and returned to the film world soon to set up Amitabh Bachchan Corporations Ltd. But soon it was closed due to debts and Bachchan had to sell his house to pay the loans he had taken from the  Canara bank.

The 1990s was a difficult time for Big B and his family. They were facing financial crises, flop films, and other matters. But still, he persisted to act till 1994 before going on a sabbatical for 5 years.

He returned to the world of cinemas in 2000 in Mohabbatein which was the first step to restoring his previous glory. He took part in films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Paa, Black, etc since then.

He has been an integral part of Kaun Banega Crorepati since 2001 as its host.
