35 Inspirational Amitabh Bachchan Quotes On Success

Amitabh Bachchan is an Indian film actor, film producer, television host, occasional playback singer, and former politician. He first gained popularity in the early 1970s for films such as Zanjeer, Deewaar, and Sholay, and was dubbed India’s “angry young man” for his on-screen roles in Bollywood. Referred to as the Shahenshah of Bollywood, Sadi ka Mahanayak (Hindi for, “Greatest actor of the century”), Star of the Millennium, or Big B, he has since appeared in over 190 Indian films in a career spanning almost five decades. Bachchan is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential actors in the history of Indian cinema as well as world cinema. So total was his dominance on the Indian movie scene in the 1970s and 1980s that the French director François Truffaut called him a ‘one-man industry’. He also had a large overseas following in markets such as Africa (especially Egypt) and the Soviet Union. May his quotes inspire you to take action so that you may live your dreams

But if we were to conduct ourselves continuously on that aspect, then we would lose the most important reason to be in this profession: to challenge the art of and be part of what is commonly known as our creative instincts.” Amitabh Bachchan

26. “People ask me why it is that when I portray the ‘angry young man’ on screen, I really look angry. They reason that it is due to some suppression in my childhood. But, it’s just that I can’t help it; it’s in my genes.” Amitabh Bachchan
