Early and personal life

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Bachchan was born in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], Uttar Pradesh, in north central India.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]His father, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], was a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] poet, and his mother, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], was a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (now in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Bachchan was initially named Inquilaab, inspired from the phrase made famous during the Indian independence struggle, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which means "long live revolution". However, at the suggestion of fellow poet [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], Harivansh Rai changed the name to Amitabh which means, "the light that will never die." Though his surname was [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], his father had adopted the pen-name Bachchan (meaning "child-like" in colloquial Hindi), under which he published all his works. It is with this last name that Amitabh debuted in films, and, for all public purposes, it has become the surname of all members of his family. Bachchan's father died in 2003 and his mother in 2007.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Bachchan is an alumnus of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and later attended [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]He has a younger brother, Ajitabh. His mother had a keen interest in theatre and had been offered a role in a film, but preferred her domestic duties. She had some degree of influence in Bachchan's choice of career because she always insisted that he should take the centre stage.

Bachchan is married to actress [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The couple have two children, Shweta Nanda (wife of businessman [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (actor and husband of actress [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).

Career


Early work: 1969–1972

Bachchan made his film debut in 1969 as a voice narrator in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] winning film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Thereafter he got his first acting role as one of the seven protagonists in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], a film directed by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and featuring [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (brother of comedian [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]), [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1971) followed, where he starred alongside Rajesh Khanna. Bachchan's role as a doctor with a cynical view of life garnered him his first [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. He then played his first negative role as an infatuated lover-turned-murderer in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1971). This was followed by several films including [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1971). During this time, he made a guest appearance in the film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which starred his future wife Jaya Bhaduri. He narrated part of the film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. In 1972, he made an appearance in the road action comedy [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], directed by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Many of his films during this early period did not do well, but that was about to change.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rise to stardom: 1973–1983

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Bachchan and wife [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in 2013, the couple got married in 1973, after the release of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
Director [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] cast him in the leading role for the film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1973) as Inspector Vijay Khanna. The film was a sharp contrast to the romantically themed films that had generally preceded it and established Amitabh in a new persona—the "angry young man" of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] cinema.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Filmfare considers this one of the most iconic performances of Bollywood history.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] The film was a huge success and one of the highest grossing films of that year, breaking Bachchan's dry spell at the box office and making him a star.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] From then onwards, Bachchan became one of the most successful leading men of the film industry. He earned his first Filmfare nomination for Best Actor for Zanjeer. The year 1973 was also when he married Jaya, and around this time they appeared in several films together; not only in Zanjeer but in films such as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which followed and was released only a month after their marriage and was also successful at the box office. Later, Bachchan played the role of Vikram, once again along with Rajesh Khanna, in the film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], a social drama directed by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and scripted by Biresh Chatterjee addressing themes of friendship. His supporting role won him his second [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

In 1974, Bachchan made several guest appearances in films such as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], before playing a supporting role in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The film, directed and written by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], addressed themes of honesty in the face of oppression and financial and emotional hardship and was the top earning film of 1974. Bachchan then played the leading role in film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], released on 6 December 1974, which was a remake of the Hollywood film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The film was a success at the box office.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]In 1975, he starred in a variety of film genres from the comedy [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], the crime drama [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to the romantic drama [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. 1975 was the year when he appeared in two films which are regarded as important in Hindi cinematic history. He starred in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] directed film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], opposite [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which earned him a Filmfare Nomination for Best Actor. The film became a major hit at the box office in 1975, ranking in at number 4.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Indiatimes Movies ranks Deewaar amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Released on 15 August 1975 was [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which became the highest grossing film of 1975 and also of all time in India, earning [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] 2,364,500,000 equivalent to US$60 million, after adjusting for inflation.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in which Bachchan played the role of Jaidev. In 1999, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] India declared it the "Film of the Millennium" and like Deewar, has been cited by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] movies as amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] In that same year, the judges of the 50th annual [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] awarded it with the special distinction award called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
In 1976 he was cast by Yash Chopra in the romantic family drama [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Bachchan starred as a young poet named Amit Malhotra who falls deeply in love with a beautiful young girl named Pooja ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) who ends up marrying someone else ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]). The film was notable for portraying Bachchan as a romantic hero, a far cry from his "angry young man" roles like Zanjeer and Deewar. The film evoked a favourable response from critics and audiences alike. Bachchan was again nominated for the Filmfare Best Actor Award for his role in the film. That same year he played a double role in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] as father and son. In 1977, he won his first [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for his performance in Amar Akbar Anthony where he played the third lead opposite [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] as Anthony Gonsalves. The film was the highest grossing film of that year. His other successes that year include [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]He once again resumed double roles in films such as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1978) as Amit and Shankar and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1978) playing the characters of Don, a leader of an underworld gang and his look alike Vijay. His performance won him his second [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. He also gave towering performances in Yash Chopra's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and Prakash Mehra's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] both of which earned him further Filmfare Best Actor nominations.
In 1979, Bachchan starred in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which was the highest earning film of that year. In the same year he also enjoyed critical acclaim and commercial success with films like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Amitabh was required to use his singing voice for the first time in a song from the film Mr. Natwarlal in which he starred alongside [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. His performance in the film saw him nominated for both the Filmfare Best Actor Award and the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. In 1979, he also received Best Actor nomination for Kaala Patthar (1979) and then went on to be nominated again in 1980 for the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] directed film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], in which he starred opposite [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Dostana proved to be the top grossing film of 1980.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] In 1981, he starred in Yash Chopra's melodrama film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], where he starred alongside his wife Jaya and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Other films of this period like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1980), [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1982) which pitted him against the veteran actor [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] were not successful at the box office but [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1980), [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1981) and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1981) were successful.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
In 1982 he played double roles in the films [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and went a little further and played a triple role in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1983).

1982 injury while filming Coolie


On 26 July 1982, while filming [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in the University Campus in Bangalore, Bachchan suffered a near fatal intestinal injury during the filming of a fight scene with co-actor [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Bachchan was performing his own stunts in the film and one scene required him to fall onto a table and then on the ground. However, as he jumped towards the table, the corner of the table struck his abdomen, resulting in a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] from which he lost a significant amount of blood. He required an emergency [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and remained critically ill in hospital for many months, at times close to death. The public response included prayers in temples and offers to sacrifice limbs to save him, while later, there were long queues of well-wishing fans outside the hospital where he was recuperating.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Nevertheless, he resumed filming later that year after a long period of recuperation. The film was released in 1983, and partly due to the huge publicity of Bachchan's accident, the film was a box office success and the top grossing film that year.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The director, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], altered the ending of Coolie after Bachchan's accident. Bachchan's character was originally intended to have been killed off but after the change of script, the character lived in the end. It would have been inappropriate, said Desai, for the man who had just fended off death in real life to be killed on screen. Also, in the released film the footage of the fight scene is frozen at the critical moment, and a caption appears onscreen marking this as the instant of the actor's injury and the ensuing publicity of the accident.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Later, he was diagnosed with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. His illness made him feel weak both mentally and physically and he decided to quit films and venture into politics. At this time he became pessimistic, expressing concern with how a new film would be received and stated before every release, "Yeh film to flop hogi!" ("This film will flop").[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Politics: 1984–87


In 1984, Bachchan took a break from acting and briefly entered politics in support of long-time family friend, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. He contested Allahabad's seat of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] against [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], former [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and won by one of the highest victory margins in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (68.2% of the vote).[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]His political career, however, was short-lived: he resigned after three years, calling politics a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The resignation followed the implication of Bachchan and his brother in the "[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]" by a newspaper, which he vowed to take to court. Bachchan was eventually found not guilty of involvement in the ordeal.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
His old friend, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], helped him during a financial crisis due to the failure of his company ABCL. Therefore Bachchan started to support Amar Singh's political party, the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Jaya Bachchan joined the Samajwadi party and became a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] member.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Bachchan has continued to do favours for the Samajwadi party, including advertisements and political campaigns. These activities have recently gotten him into trouble in the Indian courts for false claims after a previous incident of submission of legal papers by him, stating that he is a farmer.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A 15-year press ban against Bachchan was imposed during his peak acting years by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and some of the other film magazines. In his defence, Bachchan claimed to have banned the press from entering his sets until late 1989.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Slump and retirement: 1988–1992

In 1988, Bachchan returned to films, playing the title role in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which was a box office success.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]After the success of his comeback film however, his star power began to wane as all of his subsequent films like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (all released in 1989) failed at the box office. The 1991 hit film, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], for which he won his third [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], looked like it might reverse this trend, but the momentum was short-lived as his string of box office failures continued. Notably, despite the lack of hits, it was during this period that Bachchan won his first [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], for his performance as a Mafia don in the 1990 film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. These years would be the last he would be seen on screen for some time. After the release of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in 1992, Bachchan went into semi-retirement for five years. With the exception of the delayed release of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1994) which was also a box office failure, he did not appear in any new releases for five years.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Producer and acting comeback 1996–99

Bachchan turned producer during his temporary retirement period, setting up [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], Ltd. (A.B.C.L.) in 1996, with the vision of becoming a 10 billion rupees (approx 250 million $US) premier entertainment company by the year 2000.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ABCL's strategy was to introduce products and services covering the entire section of the India's entertainment industry. Its operations were mainstream commercial film production and distribution, audio cassettes and video discs, production and marketing of television software, celebrity and event management.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Soon after the company was launched in 1996, the first film produced by the company was [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which failed to do well at the box office but launched the careers of actors such as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and South films star [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ABCL produced a few other films, none of which did well.


In 1997, Bachchan attempted to make his acting comeback with the film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], produced by ABCL. Though Mrityudaata attempted to reprise Bachchan's earlier success as an action hero, the film was a failure both financially and critically.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ABCL was the main sponsor of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but lost millions. The fiasco and the consequent legal battles surrounding ABCL and various entities after the event, coupled with the fact that ABCL was reported to have overpaid most of its top level managers, eventually led to its financial and operational collapse in 1997. The company went into administration and was later declared a failed company by Indian Industries board.[[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]] The Bombay high court, in April 1999, restrained Bachchan from selling off his Bombay [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] 'Prateeksha' and two flats till the pending loan recovery cases of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] were disposed of. Bachchan had, however, pleaded that he had mortgaged his bungalow to raise funds for his company.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Bachchan attempted to revive his acting career and had average success with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1998),[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]and received positive reviews for [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1999)[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but other films such as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1999) and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1999) were box office failures.

Return to prominence: 2000–present

In 2000, Amitabh Bachchan appeared in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s box-office hit, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], directed by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. He played a stern, older figure that rivalled the character of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. His role won him his third [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Other hits followed, with Bachchan appearing as an older family patriarch in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (2001), [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (2001) and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (2003).

One project that did particularly well for Bachchan was [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (2005). The film starred Bachchan as an ageing teacher of a deaf-blind girl and followed their relationship. His performance was unanimously praised by critics and audiences and won him his second [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and fourth [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Taking advantage of this resurgence, Amitabh began endorsing a variety of products and services, appearing in many television and billboard advertisements. In 2005 and 2006, he starred with his son Abhishek in the hit films [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (2005), the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] tribute [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (2005), and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (2006).

In May 2007, two of his films [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and the multi-starrer [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] were released. Shootout at Lokhandwala did well at the box office and was declared a semi-hit in India, while Cheeni Kum picked up after a slow start and only had average success.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]A remake of his biggest hit, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (1975), entitled [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], released in August of that same year and proved to be a major commercial failure in addition to its poor critical reception.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]The year also marked Bachchan's first appearance in an English-language film, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

The film was due to begin filming in February 2008 but due to the writer's strike, was pushed to September 2008.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]The film is currently "shelved" indefinitely.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], in which he plays the title role as a ghost, was released on 9 May 2008. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], the sequel of the 2005 film [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], released in June 2008 and received a positive response at the box-office. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which released at the end of 2009 was a highly anticipated project as it saw him playing his own son Abhishek's Progeria-affected 13-year-old son, and it opened to favourable reviews, particularly towards Bachchan's performance. It won him his third [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and fifth [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
