A Bollywood Superstar : Amitabh Bachchan

This film star first gained popularity in the early 1970s. So total was his dominance of the movie scene in the 1970s and 1980s that the French director Fran├žois Truffaut called him a “one-man industry.” But there came a time when a number of his films which released consecutively failed at the box office, and just a few years later, his production house tanked, eventually led to its financial and operational collapse in 1997.

However, he soon made a comeback, and as of 2015, is still one of the most bankable, successful and respected stars all over the world. This person is no other than the incredible Amitabh Bachchan.
He has played a range of characters and received critical acclaim for many of them. The recent movie Piku is still earning him nods of approval from all over the world. He is currently 72 years old and proves that age is no barrier!
