Amitabh Bachchan’s BIG 70!!!

Many-a-times, life brings dilemmas but one must pull themselves together and get on with life. As the legendary actor Raj Kapoor once said, ‘The show must go on’…


This man needs no introduction! He was, he is and he certainly will remain the ‘The Superstar’ of our country. Our country is going insane over their megastar’s 70th birthday. The whole India knows how Mr. Bachchan survived after his near-death experience during the shooting of Coolie. His popularity escalated post the accident. It was sheer luck and the love of audience which brought him back to life.

Even today, it’s heart-pumping to see him on the big picture. His persona has won almost all hearts out there. He not only roped in the audience through his movies, he also brings joy to aam junta on the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Many actors have tried their luck with television industry but fell flat. AB Sir is the only actor still standing with a firm foot in TV Land. There is one particular trait; I’d like to point out. His patience is awe-inspiring. The way he handles hoards of people with sheer humbleness is purely commendable.

Each time Mr. Bachchan visits the hospital for any medical reasons, there are numerous well-wishers praying for his speedy recovery. These people are not just followers but devotees.

Aam Junta went gaga over Mr. Bachchan’s Big 70 celebration at Film City in Mumbai yesterday. It was no less than a red carpet event. The who’s who of the country showed up and flaunted their best attire and attitude. The Bachchan clan rocked the party and looked ravishing in their flashy ensembles. The media and the internet went berserk uploading pictures of this event. My personal favorite is Shweta Bachchan Nanda. Who was yours?

This is what Shahrukh Khan once said in one of his interviews, “Amitabhji is God.” Indeed!

It is bewildering to see Mr. Bachchan hale and hearty at the age of 70!!! Wishing him a very Happy Birthday…


  1. Ah! You are so right about the BIG-B needing absolutely no introduction whatsoever. He is one of the few rare human-being present on this earth whose 70th birthday was celebrated by almost the whole country. The people who attended, the people who sat glued to their screens to “attend” his B’day Party and also the people who were reading n chit-chatting about the party the next day. The conversation and debates on who was the show stealer ran like wild-fire and dominated all the gossips sessions in the office water-cooler, schools n college’s rest-rooms as well as homemaker’s over-the-window chit-chats. Well. I could not take my eyes away from the Shenshah of Bollywood, so no comments on who stole the show!!!
    Well written post!

  2. Ms. Shilpi, thank you for the comment. I appreciate you reading my blog and actually liking it... :)

  3. Amitabh Bachchan believes that lessons learnt in this life is retained in the next life--at least that is what I understood in a write-up about his interview in Indian Express. And I think it is a great statement. Even if one discounts that next-birth element out of the statement, it's still meaningful. Didn't he learn out of his mistakes and lived on?
    Thank U Divya.

  4. "Mai Amitabh Bachchan bol raha hoon" and "Deviyo aur Sajjano" pure bliss to listen him. Hope he keeps enthralling us in decades to come :)

  5. Mr. Nanda: thank you for reading and commenting on my blog. I totally agree with you... He has mentioned this statement on twitter as well.

  6. @My Journey: he sure has that baritone voice which pulls all the listeners anywhere anytime! Thank you for reading n commenting on my blog. :)
