Amitabh Bachchan is perhaps one of the most revered actors of Bollywood. While the Shahenshah of Bollywood may have climbed through all the pillars of success, there is still a child within him seeking to look for new beginnings. His dedication and love for his work are noteworthy and an inspiration to many.
Born to a middle class family, the joys of buying the first car was something no one could describe. In fact, for the Bachchans, it was as big as a celebration! His first car was a Ford Prefect, which was a small one. In fact, the car was mostly driven by Amitabh’s mother as his father developed a fear of driving, after meeting with an accident.
T 2782 – ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ ran 25 weeks in 25 theatres in one city, Mumbai.
6 films of mine released 1982 – ‘Satte pe Satta’, ‘Shakti’, ‘Bemisal’, ‘NamakHalal’, ‘Khuddar’, & ‘DeshPremi’ .. 6 films in 1 year .. AND in 3 of these films I played a double role !

One of the most iconic films of Amitabh’s career was Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay, where he starred along with Dharmendra. His first career choice was not in acting. Amitabh wanted to become a radio jockey back in the day and he was actually rejected for the job because of the low baritone of his voice.
Born to the renowned poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan and freedom fighter Teji, the infant Amitabh was almost named Inquilab. Better sense prevailed and he was named Amitabh, meaning ‘the light that will never go off’. His very first job was at a shipping company, Bird & Co. However, acting came knocking at the door of his dreams and Amitabh just had to take the job!
A dejected Amitabh Bachchan almost caught a train home to Allahabad when he heard K A Abbas was casting for Saat Hindustani. Armed with a letter of introduction from Indira Gandhi, mother of his friend Rajiv, he bagged his first role and his first National Award.
Unfortunately, this movie would not be his golden goose. A string of flops later, Amitabh finally made it to the big leagues with Prakash Mehra’s Zanjeer. From then on, there was absolutely no turning back and even almost 80 years later, the actor still has a host of movies in his pocket!

What Would Male Bollywood Actors Look Like As Women?
That our Bollywood leading men are hunks is quite a known fact. From the chiseled bodies to their gorgeous face, our actors are anything but the ordinary. While we know what they look in their current form, imagine if they looked like the female version of themselves. The same body, the same name, but a different face! We realise people were having one of those Freaky Fridays and to make things a bit more fun, we decided to play a game! We swapped the faces of these men with those of women and see what they look. What we have is true entertainment!
1. Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar’s female version. What would that be like? Quite an interesting question, no? Name her if you will!

Such a cutie, this boy. Imagine if this dude looked like a woman? Who do you all think he would resemble?

7. Hrithik Roshan
No. NO. There is no way Hrithik Roshan’s face can be replicated to fit a woman’s face.
8. Tiger Shroff
