The deep baritone voice which became a trademark, his tall, brooding persona, and intense eyes made Amitabh Bachchan the ideal "Angry Young Man" of Hindi cinema in the 1970s, with a massive star power that increases with each passing day. He was born in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh to late poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan. He married actress Jaya Bhaduri and was blessed with a daughter(Shweta) and son(Abhishek). Abhishek is married to beauty queen Aishwarya Rai and the couple is expecting their first child soon.
Amitabh Bachchan fondly called as Big B is a man who has epitomised grit, determination and resilience perfectly, having seen many professional and personal failures but not failing to strive. Below are few pictures from his birthday party which was initially thought out to be a small affair, if only his many fans concurred.
