Amitabh Bachchan

Singer, Music Director, Artist, Actor, Producer
Born: Oct 11, 1942
 
 

Amitabh Bachchan is a veteran Hindi film actor with over 200 films over a career spanning forty years. The 1970s saw him as the "angry young man", a rebel who depicted the Indian reality on screen and won the hearts of cinegoers.

Thanks to his baritone voice, he started his contribution to Hindi film music through spoken words in films like "Kabhie Kabhie" (1976). A singing opportunity followed in the form of the comic, children’s song "Mere Paas Aao Mere Doston" ("Mr. Natwarlal", 1979). Over the years, he has sang and recited spoken words in many films - "Laawaris" (1981), "Silsilia" (1981), "Mahaan" (1983), "Baghban" (2003), "Bbuddha…Hoga Tera Baap" (2011) and "Kahaani" (2012) being some of his significant contributions.

Ironically, Amitabh, in his early years, was rejected by Air India Radio because they didn't think his voice was suited for radio.
