A superstar with fans of all ages, Amitabh Bachchan turns a year older today. As the never-ageing superstar celebrates his birthday, we take a look at all the reasons why we admire the actor par excellence! From his commendable work ethics to time punctuality and love for Twitter, AB has a large number of young fans who love the star regardless. His tweets are read by millions and his blogs are revisited by the internet savvy youth for their daily dose of gyaan. In fact, even his fashion choices are replicated by youngsters. Thus, it’s fair to say that the angry young man of Hindi cinema has much to inspire. Take a look.
1. Never Give Up!
Amitabh Bachchan’s life has been a roller coaster of sorts from getting rejected by All India Radio to finding a footing in the Indian Film Industry as a tall, thin man. In fact, before AB tasted success he had 13 box office disasters to his name. But if he would have given up then, we wouldn’t have an icon today. So take inspiration from the true superstar and pursue your dreams!
2. Be Disciplined
Part of AB’s success can be credited to his disciplined lifestyle. Not only is Bachchan extremely punctual but also believes in giving every task his 100 per cent. A recipient of the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awards, Bachchan has worked on some of the most noteworthy projects and is a name to be reckoned with not only in Bollywood but overseas too. Now that’s something to truly aim for!
3. Embrace Change
Amitabh Bachchan has been in the industry for over four decades and while people younger to him have come and gone, AB remains an evergreen figure of admiration. This is because the man believes in embracing change and makes a point to learn from everyone and everything. Active on Twitter, AB also has an updated blog where he likes to connect with his followers and shares personal stories. Talk about being tech savvy at that age!
4. Age Is Just A Number
Consider the fact that Amitabh played his son Abhishek’s son in the movie Paa and you’d know what we are talking about! The ace actor is nowhere close to retirement with multiple projects in the pipeline. In fact, one look at his bold fashion choices and you would be enthralled at his youthfulness!
5. Failure Leads To Success
No one knows that better than AB! In the 1990s ABCL, Amitabh Bachchan’s event management and production company went bankrupt forcing the actor to take up work to pay dues. Fast forward to now when AB reportedly makes 3 crores for an episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 10. Enough said!
While we are still getting over how energetic and youthful Amitabh Bachchan is at 76, we’d like to wish the evergreen actor a very Happy Birthday!
