There could be only one name when it comes to topping the lists like ‘greatest living actors’, ‘greatest actors of all time’, ‘greatest performers of all time’, ‘legends of all time’. And the name is none other than 74 year-old Amitabh Harivansh Rai Shrivastava Bachchan. He was born to the famous yesteryear poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan.

Making his debut in Saat Hindustani in 1969, and with giving hits after hits like Zanjeer, Namak Haraam, Deewar, Sholay, Amar Akbar Anthony, Mr. Natwarlal, in the 1970s he catapulted to stardom and no other actor in that generation enjoyed such a huge fan base as him. After doing a few films in early 1980s, he left acting for a time being and joined politics which eventually led him to get accused of Bofors scandal. He returned and gave a few hits and on his first National Film Award for acting for his role in Agneepath, a highly admired role and seminal for generations to come. After a huge gap, his luck favoured him in the 2000s, and in this era his most prominent and award-winning roles have been- Mohabbatein, Baghban, Black, Baabul, Paa, Piku and Pink.
He is known for his humanitarian works as well, especially for farmers as he has donated loads of money and always come forward in their support. On TV he is known for hosting Kaun Banega Crorepati, for his ad-commercials and being ambassadors to many causes like Incredible India and Polio vaccination campaigns. He has been awarded with Padma Shri, Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan, and four National Film Awards for Best Actor.
He was rumoured to be in relationship with Rekha and Parveen Babi. He loves poetry and travelling to London. He likes eating Jalebi. His favorite actors are Dilip Kumar and Waheeda Rahman. Pyasa and Kaagaz ke Phool is one of his favorite films of all time. He has an amazing collection of cars and bikes- Rolls Royce, Mercedes are a few of them.
Stars are always surrounded by controversies. He allegedly got involved in the famous Bofors scandal, later to be proved non-guilty. During his peak period, Stardust ordered a ban on him for 15 years.
