Speaking in an interview about his entry in to films, the actor said, “I always wondered how one got into films. When I saw the Filmfare-Madhuri print ad in a magazine, I felt this was the proper way to get into the film industry. It would get me a chance to audition for a screen test; put me on a salary. Of course, I got rejected. And then, I just made up my mind that I had to be in the movies. So I landed up in Mumbai with my driving licence. I hoped that if I didn’t get into films, then I would drive a taxi.”
Amitabh Bachchan, the grand old man of Indian cinema is entering 70s today. And out of these 53 have been spent in front of the camera. After all these hyper-active years, the actor still acting and is still grounded.
