Amitabh Bachchan, considered as Bollywood’s biggest star, completes his four decades in the Hindi film industry this year.
To celebrate Bachchan’s forty years in Bollywood, a well-known company has planned a lavish party on October 11, the superstar’s birthday.
On the occasion, his super hit films would be screened again.
Bachchan, who began his career with a small role in Khwaja Ahmad Abbas-directed flick Saat Hindusthani released in 1969, shot to fame with his angry young man image beginning with Zanjeer.
The mega star’s career has seen many ups and downs, however, his ability to bounce back with brilliant performances and popularity across all domains has kept him going even at the age of 68 when all his peers have preferred to stay away from the celluloid.
Amitabh Bachchan, the most popular Bollywood star, made his debut with Saat Hindusthani (1970) directed by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas.

However, it was Zanjeer (1973) that made Amitabh a household name and gave him the title of angry young man in Bollywood.
Since then it’s never looking back for the actor who ruled the industry in the 80s with several blockbusters.
Termed as ‘one man army’ by veteran Hindi film producer-director Manmohan Desai, Bachchan continues to entertain the new generation of audiences with variety of roles.
The 68-year-old actor has three National Awards to his credit — Saat Hindusthani in ‘Best Newcomer’ category, while for Agneepath (1990) and Black (2005) he won the trophies in ‘Best Actor’ category.
He has won four Filmfare Best Actor awards so far for Amar Akbar Anthony (1977), Don (1978), Agneepath, Hum (1991) and Black.
In Best Supporting Actor category, he has bagged three awards for Anand (1971), Namak Haraam (1973) and Mohabbatein (2000).
