“I am at work, KBC from 9 am to 9 pm. Now here I am on recording, even after midnight. Nothing is gained in life without hard work. Babuji used to say, as long as there is life, there is struggle . “
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has said this by tweeting just one day before his 78th birthday.
Today, on October 11, Amitabh Bachchan has turned 78 years old, even at this age, there is no shortage of examples of how active, how hardworking and how dedicated he is.
Even today, there is no other example of the enthusiasm and energy with which they are working tirelessly for many hours.
Age is meaningless for Amitabh.
In terms of work, Amitabh is no less than any young person, the fact is that today he not only beats all his contemporary actors, but most of the actors even younger than him do not stop in front of him.
In the film world, there have been one to one aged and one to one brilliant actor. Many actors have a lot of dedication, dedication and dedication towards work, but most of the actors lost their age. While some despite their many glorious achievements, due to health or for some other reasons, they fell behind at their young age.
Even after going backwards for more than a hundred years of cine history, there is no other actor like Amitabh Bachchan, who has been working day and night continuously at such an age. Along with the lead roles, TV shows, advertisements and even social work have also taken place day and night.
Amitabh Bachchan has been 51 years working in films, I have also been witness to the tremendous dedication towards work for the last four decades. When I first met Amitabh at his Delhi home, then Amitabh was only 35 years old, even then he was so restless about his work as he is today.
Amitabh is sure of discipline and time
Many actors are often heard saying about Amitabh Bachchan – “Not everyone can have the same fate as Amitabh Bachchan.” Even today, films are written specifically for him. Even today, they do not have a shortage of work. But we could not get this good fortune.
It is true that the popularity, success and achievements which Amitabh Bachchan is getting at this age were not found by many other veteran artists.
Amitabh Bachchan’s fate may also have some role in all of this, but as far as I understand, his discipline and 100% dedication to work more than luck is the biggest reason for his success.
Amitabh is so disciplined and punctual from the beginning, not from today. For them, 9 o’clock means exactly 9 o’clock. Many years ago also used to say that Amitabh is so sure of the times that watches can be mixed with the time of reaching his set. Apart from Amitabh, this example was given to someone else, so it was Pran.
It is also interesting to note that Pran and Amitabh have worked together in a dozen films including Zanjeer, Kasauti, Don, Naseeb and Sharabi. Where many times it used to happen that these two actors reached the set first at the scheduled time of shooting, while the others came late.
Smart despite many illnesses
The great thing of Amitabh Bachchan’s life is that he has been suffering from many diseases for years. Even Amitabh Bachchan’s liver now works only 25 percent. Despite this, he never lost courage in front of his diseases, nor did he allow the disease to come in front of work.
Amitabh may have a lot of problems regarding his health, but when he is shooting or has to go to another scheduled program, he leaves his illness at home. It never happens that he arrived late on the set saying that his health was not right today.
It is not understood that everyone arrives late in Mumbai saying that they are stuck in traffic, but why did Amitabh Bachchan never get caught in traffic, being part of the same Mumbai.
There was apprehension about KBC due to Corona
When Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek, Aishwarya and Aaradhya Corona got infected in July, it was felt that after the admission of Amitabh in the hospital, now the 12th season of KBC will not start in time but just a few days after Amitabh discharged from the hospital. , When KBC started shooting it was a surprise for everyone.
When many people over the age of 65 have been advised to stay indoors for protection from Corona, many stars are not ready to shoot at all. Even after Amitabh did not give up, he started shooting for KBC, KBC The telecast of the film started on September 28.
This is the twentieth year and 12th season of KBC, so the channel was making a lot of preparations for this season but Sony channel had also made up its mind to start KBC with some delay due to Amitabh’s poor health. Sony Pictures CEO NP Singh had made it clear that KBC will do only with Amitabh.
All this also shows that Amitabh Bachchan has been the emperor not only of the silver screen but also of the small screen, where the channel is ready to start its big project late but not ready to shoot without Amitabh.
Three films ready
Amitabh Bachchan still has the ability to compete with many young stars of the country even after he turns 78, a strong example of this is that three of his films are soon to be released.
Had the outbreak of the corona epidemic not happened, then Amitabh Bachchan had announced 4 films to be released earlier this year, but everything changed due to corona.
Yet one of his four films, ‘Gulabo Sitabo’, was released on June 12 on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video. With this, it became the first major feature film of the country to be released on OTT. This film was liked by some viewers, but some did not, but due to Amitabh’s acting and his unique style, the film continuously made a lot of headlines.
Now Amitabh’s films which are coming soon, his names are ‘face’, ‘herd’ and ‘Brahmastra’. Among them, Amitabh is in the lead role in ‘Face’ and ‘Jhund’ while Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are also the lead actors in ‘Brahmastra’.
Vyjayanthi Movie, a big banner of South Cinema, has also announced to make a mega film with Amitabh Bachchan, Prabhas and Deepika Padukone under the direction of Nag Ashwani,
Prabhas along with Amitabh also expressed their happiness on Twitter when Vyjayanti Movie announced its unnamed film when it was 50 years old.
How much respect Amitabh Bachchan is given to the filmmaker of the South and the famous hero of the film like ‘Bahubali’, it can be easily gauged that the producer has said about Amitabh that “Without Legend we are a Legendary film How can we even try to make it? ”
On the other hand, Prabhas says, “Sharing screen space with Amitabh sir is like a dream and now this dream is going to come true in the final.”
How Amitabh is competing against many big actors in the film world even in such an age, it can be understood that some 20 films of Amitabh have been screened in the last 10 years.
Whereas Amitabh is about 8 years younger in age and the most popular star of South, Rajinikanth has done only 15 films in the last 20 years.
In these past 10 years, some of Amitabh’s films have been well received by the audience and critics, as well as some of his films at the box office, such as Badla, 102 Not Out, Pink, Piku and Bhootnath Returns.
Left the big heroes behind
When Amitabh Bachchan was 40 years old in films, while writing a special story on him about 10 years ago, I wrote – “Amitabh left everyone behind in 40 years”, then Amitabh told me while reading him- ” You have written all this wrong, there are many actors ahead of me.
Actually, Amitabh said all this because of his decency, while everyone knows that Amitabh Bachchan has no other mash today.
There are many such actors in the cinema industry today who are older than Amitabh Bachchan, for example Dilip Kumar who is now 97 years old. He has earned a lot of name in his career, Amitabh also considers him as his ideal but Dilip Saheb’s last major film came in 1991 – ‘Soudagar’. At that time Dilip Kumar was 69 years old.
Although the 1998 film ‘Qila’ is the last film of Dilip Kumar, but that film was being made intermittently for a long time, so the fort was not shown in the true sense.
However, Dilip Kumar was still 76 years of age, after that no film of Dilip Saheb came. Even Dilip Kumar is away from films for years due to his ill health.
Another hero older than Amitabh is the evergreen Dharmendra, who is now 84 years old, although he is quite active, looks a little younger than Amitabh but as far as movies are concerned, his friend ‘Veeru’ Can’t find movies
For the last few years, Dharmendra has been able to work in only four films of his home production such as Yamla Pagla Deewana, Tell Me O Khuda and Apne. When he got his last film ‘Life in a Metro’ from an outside producer, in 2007, Dharma Pa ji was 72 years old.
Earlier, among the contemporary actors of Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar, Vinod Khanna, Sunil Dutt, Feroz Khan, Shammi Kapoor, Dev Anand and Rishi Kapoor are no more in this world, some of them are younger. I had died
Among these actors, both Shashi Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor died at the age of 79 years, but Shashi Kapoor had left movies years before his death.
While Shammi Kapoor was very active in films till his end i.e. 2011, but in his last 5 years, Shammi did only two films, ‘Sandwich’ of 2006 and ‘Rockstar’ of 2011, but both of these films also by Shammi Kapoor Due to his ill health, some people had made a special request.
Today, Jeetendra is also 78 years old among Amitabh’s companions. Jitendra is much better than Amitabh in terms of fitness, health and look and is attractive even today, but he is also far behind in terms of working in films.
Similarly, Randhir Kapoor, who is now 73, had his last film released so far in 2014 – ‘Super Granny’. He is far behind Amitabh in terms of films activism.
Even after his old age, Devanand continued to work in films till the end i.e. 88 years, his last film was ‘Chargesheet’ but Dev Saheb used to make films for himself from his home production. That too very few films.
Before Devaanand, another evergreen actor was Ashok Kumar. The good thing was that he lived for 90 years, also he continued to do films till the age of 86 till 1997 but only occasionally. But films like these are being written regularly for Amitabh these days, such films were not found in Ashok Kumar in his old age.
Khan ahead of stars
Here, Amitabh Bachchan, 20 to 25 years younger than his age, is ahead of Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, Shah Rukh Khan has no film on the floor yet, Aamir Khan is also just a film ‘ Lal Singh Chadha is working.
While Salman Khan also has a film ‘Radhe’ on the floor. Although Salman also has a TV show ‘Bigg Boss’ but Amitabh has three films that will be released soon, the new anonymous film announced with his Prabhas will be made in many languages and by the year 2022 Will appear in
Today, in front of Amitabh, if any actor stands firmly in front of Akshay Kumar. He has films like Laxmi Bomb, Prithviraj, Suryavanshi and Ballabottom today.
The intensity and intelligence with which Akshay is doing films is certainly a commendable compliment.
Akshay is now 53 years old, but Amitabh can be said to be better than Akshay because where Akshay goes to sleep early after eating till 7 pm, Amitabh Bachchan wakes up at two to three in the night, his age of 78 and They continue to work despite many diseases. That’s why we say that Amitabh is no less than a young man even at the age of 78.
