How Big B returned to success after fighting bankruptcy, health concerns
Big B is a great example of resilience as he fought against all odds to emerge as the winner
Amitabh Bachchan, born on October 11, 1942, has a charm that hasn’t faded even after 50 years in Indian cinema. The Indian megastar, , lovingly called Big B, is still adored and admired by his many followers.
Resilience or toughness is the quality of a person to recover from all sort of difficulties. Big B, recently celebrated his Golden Jubilee, in the Bollywood industry, after fighting all odds, including bankruptcy and health concerns.
Big B rose to prominence with his 1973 picture Zanjeer and went on to have a string of hits throughout his career. From health crises to declaring bankruptcy, he has seen it all.
In an old interview, Amitabh Bachchan stated that he was enjoying his catastrophic fortune in the year 2000, when the rest of the world was celebrating the new century. He went on to say that he had no films, no money, no company, and that he had a million legal claims against ABCL. This occurred following the failure of the ABCL-organized Miss World Pageant in 1996.
Big B made a comeback with Mohabattein and Kaun Banega Crorepati and has been unstoppable since.
Amitabh Bachchan was left penniless, and all of his possessions were encumbered. He admitted that it had been one of the lowest times of his life.
One day, he approached Yash Chopra and begged him to give him a film. Big B’s return to success started after Yash Raj offered him Mohabattein in 2000.
The movie was a box office success, putting the actor’s career back on track.
Amitabh Bachchan later hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati, which was a watershed moment in his life. The reality show helped him recover from a financial crisis and he apparently paid off a debt of ’90 crores. In an interview, he remembers creditors threatening him. Recognizing the importance of KBC in his life, he stated that it arrived at a time when he needed it the most. It fast-tracked Big B’s return to success,both professionally and financially, according to the megastar.
His resilience then helped Amitabh Bachchan to star in other popular films such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Baghban, Black, and many more. The actor will appear in a number of films in 2020, including Gulabo Sitabo, Ghoomketu, Chehre, Brahmastra, Jhund, and others.
