On October 11, Amitabh Bachchan turned 80. And it will mark another milestone in a celebrated life. He has won awards and accolades that are too numerous to recount. The man who has been dubbed the ‘Superstar of the Millennium’ is going strong in the third decade of the new millennium. Therein lies a remarkable story of invention and reinvention. He made his debut in 1969 in Saat Hindustani, went on to become the second superstar of Bollywood in the 70’s and a one-man industry for much of the eighties before announcing his retirement in 1992. This was preceded by a non-too successful foray into politics and followed by an equally tough if not tougher stint as a businessman. Then KBC happened around 2000 and the rest as they say is history. He also then began experimenting with his roles and Amitabh Bachchan the actor who had taken a backseat to Amitabh Bachchan the superstar resurfaced. And the man who made his debut at a time when owning a television set was still a dream for most Indians transitioned almost inevitably to being consumed on OTT platforms. And becoming relevant to the WhattsApp generation. We have often heard ‘Age is just a number’. If you want proof look at Amitabh Bachchan.
