Most of his hits were before the 90s generation came into existence but he revived his career when we were growing up. In the mid and late 90s, Amitabhji was struggling to get his career back on track. “One of the really good friends of mine (Amitabhji took the name of that person) wrote an article on me titled ‘finished’. He is still my friend but that article pushed me to work harder, I used to read that article every day.” Amitabhji mentioned it in one of his interviews after the success of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Kaun Banega Crorepati is one of the turning points in the career of Amitabh Bachchan.
Talking of Kaun Banega Crorepati, in the last 18 years, producers tried to replace Amitabhji with other superstars but no one was able to create the magic like Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. The magic which Amitabhji creates on Kaun Banega Crorepati is the magic of respect. Not only contestants and celebs, but Amitabhji also addresses computer as computer-ji. Even timer is addressed as gadhi badi ji. When a deep, baritone voice gives respect to everyone around, magic is bound to happen. Along with respect, the aura of person also works in favour of the show. Apart from Kaun Banega Crorepati, we have seen the best part of his acting in the movies like sarkar, black, paa, cheeni kum, piku, 102 not out, pink, bhagban and others. We will continue to witness that part of his acting in upcoming movies as well.
Shri Amitabh Bachchan is an elder son of the great Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan & Teji Bachchan. He was born in Allahabad in 1942 and he has one younger brother. Amitabhji made his acting debut in Saat Hindustani in 1970. Then in the span of ten years, Amitabhji rose to stardom and became an angry young man of the country. In the 1970s, Amitabhji made a place in the hearts of the people and the proof of that was out when a severe accident occurred on the sets of coolie. Whole nation came together and prayed for his recovery. As a result (they say) Amitabh Bachchan was re-born. Amitabhji’s injury was so severe that it would have been difficult to recover without the wishes and prayers of people. Even today, people gather outside Amitabhji’s house every Sunday to wish him well for the future.
The tag ‘Star of Millennium’ is perfect to describe the personality named Amitabh Bachchan.
90s kid’s connection
As a 90s kid, I am highly influenced by Amitabhji’s work ethics. Amitabhji is giving his best at the age in which people are not willing to walk. Apart from that, being best at your job is another thing which Amitabhji inspires us to do. While other actors prove themselves stars by showing arrogance and vulgarity in public, Amitabhji does it with utmost modesty and humble attitude. So the characteristics which 90s generation should adopt from Amitabhji are humbleness and giving respect to everyone around. It is not easy to make a comeback after hitting the low in your career. Amitabhji has done that with the grace and dignity. 90s generation should also learn never say die attitude from Amitabhji.
Amitabhji has proved that he is a real superstar over and over again. As a 90s kid, I wish to see more and more inspirational work of him in the time to come.
