Amitabh Bachcha, the angry young man of Bollywood, gained popularity in the 1970s after doing ‘Zanjeer’ and ‘Deewaar’. After giving back-to-back super hits and facing certain ups and downs in his career, Amitabh Bachchan has become one of the legends of Bollywood.
He is now referred to with various names like the “Shahenshah of Bollywood”, the “Star of the Millennium” or “Big B”. 74 year-old Amitabh still rules over the hearts of his fans. But, people don’t know that when Amitabh first sent his picture for a contest to enter films, he got rejected!
Yes, you read right! Recently, Big B tweeted about the incident along with that photograph. Take a look at his tweet…
