Amitabh Bachchan had proved in the very first film that he has come to play a long innings in the industry, but he says that success does not come so easily. Something similar happened with Big B as well. He too had to struggle a lot in his early days. Today, on his 80th birthday, we are telling you about the actor’s debut film Saat Hindustani. How did he get this film and how did he prove to be a superhit after this film.
Amitabh Bachchan was fond of acting since childhood
Since childhood, Amitabh Bachchan was very fond of acting. He used to take part in plays during school and college. It is said that along with working in plays, his mind started running towards films, but Big B’s parents did not want him to pursue a career in films. In such a situation, there was a person who wanted Amitabh to come in films and that was his brother Ajitabh Bachchan. To fulfill Amitabh Bachchan’s dream of appearing in films, his brother helped him a lot.
Brother Ajitabh helped him a lot
Once Ajitabh was going from Delhi to Mumbai when he met a friend in the train and told that director Khwaja Abbas is looking for a new face for his film ‘Saat Hindustani’. Just what was there, Ajitabh had many pictures of his brother Amitabh, he handed them over to a friend at that time. As soon as Abbas saw the pictures of Big B, he said that call the boy.
Abbas wrote a letter to Harivansh Rai Bachchan
When Amitabh Bachchan reached Abbas for a film audition, the first thing he asked him was, are you Bachchan’s son and have run away from home? In such a situation, Amitabh said, ‘No parents know’, but Abbas sent a telegram to Harivansh Rai Bachchan asking him if he agreed to work in Amitabh Bachchan’s films. To this, Harivansh Rai Bachchan replied that if Amitabh seems to be capable, then we agree, but if he does not, then explain and send him back. Just took an audition from Phir Kya Tha Khwaja Abbas and signed Amitabh for five thousand rupees for the film. At the same time, seeing Big B completed his 5 decades on the film screen. In the journey of so many years, there was no difference in his stardom.
