Amitabh Bachchan Turns 64

The living legend of Indian Cinema, the angry young man of 70s, voted as the star of the millennium by BBC and voted as the best anchor ever in the history of Indian television Amitabh Bachchan has turned 64 on Tuesday 11th of October 2005.

Almost all the stars of his age group have gone into shells but this man continues to cast his spell over the millions of people globally and not just in India. Some people say it’s the charisma of Amitabh Bachchan, which actually takes the screen by fire. Whether it’s the martinet principal in Mohabatein or the role of a drunkard police officer in Bunty aur Babli, He does every role to the perfection and gets into any role with ease.

Whether it’s the ads of Emami or the pappu of Cadbury or the Red Man of Eveready, He is superb in every role. There is not a single minute when on any channel one cannot find an ad featuring Amitabh Bachchan.

While the entire nation and nook and corners of each and every part of the country was going gaga over the birthday of Amitabh Bachchan, the man himself decided to stay away from all kinds of celebrations.

AB decided to keep his birthday low profile this year in wake of the earthquake that hit India and Pakistan. He had planned a birthday bash with close friends and relatives at his residence. But finally he just had breakfast with members of AB Corp and his personal staff at his office in Juhu. Well unlike many of us AB did not take a holiday even on his birthday and shoot for KBC. Later he flew to New York to shoot for the latest movie of Karan Johar.

There is no doubt the actor remains a superstar till date, given the fact that most of his 2005 releases have done well. Take Black, Waqt: Race Against Time, Sarkar and Bunty Aur Babli. I wish him a very happy birthday and hope to see more of Amitabh in every sphere of Indian cinema.
