Television celebs share what they love about Amitabh Bachchan

Hardworking, inspiring, down-to-earth are just some of the terms that our TV actors use to describe Bollywood legendary superstar Amitabh Bachchan. The superstar turns a year older tomorrow, 11th of October.

Here is what the TV fraternity love about him.

Vahbiz Dorabjee

I love every film of his, especially his great performances in films like Paa and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. He’s a legend and totally deserves the position he enjoys in the industry. I love the way he is an inspiration for many actors and how he works harder and harder each day. He inspires even the younger generation. I also love his voice and his command over languages.

Sourabh Raj Jain

I have always loved him in every film that he did. He is a pure genius, an encyclopedia of acting. I am sorry I can’t name just one of his films that I love. His consistency with utmost passion for his craft and an equal amount of humility, makes him what he is, a legend.

Adaa Khan

I love Trishul because of his dialogue delivery and acting. He is very modest and a down-to-earth and there is so much to learn from him.


I have been obsessed with the Big B since forever. Silsila, Chupke Chup Ke, Sholay are my top three movies of his. I love the intensity of his eyes and voice. I can watch them again and again.

Ssharad Malhotra

Agneepath is my favourite film and my all-time favourite character is Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. It is an epic film with some hard hitting dialogues, brilliant direction, tight screenplay, jaw-dropping action and some memorable/award-winning performances too. His professionalism and his passion towards his craft, even after four decades remain just the same. It is very inspiring and motivating too. He is truly a legend and I hope I get to work with him someday in the near future.

Karan Oberoi

Amitabh Bachchan is everyone’s hero. An entire generation has grown up on a staple diet of his onscreen heroic shenanigans. Being such a fabulous actor, not just a superstar, he could pull of any role that was required of him, and still can. He was equally adept at comedies as he was at being an angry young man. I loved him the most in Sholay and Namak Haram. The best thing about his long illustrious career is that it is laced with genre-defining roles and how he reinvents himself with the time. This can be seen in films like in Cheeni Kam and especially Paa!

Shakti Arora

I liked his film Hum a lot, because of his different shades in the film. He also played a very inspiring character in it. There are many other films, too, like Sharabi, Shakti, Silsila, Shehenshah, which were path-breaking and epic. No one can match his excellence. His intensity in the scenes is amazing, that’s why maybe he is called an angry young man. There is no other Indian actor of his age, who is working like him, putting so many hours and so much of hard work every day. He is best because he sets an example for the entire industry and shows how to stay humble. He never forgets to appreciate people through personalised letters for their performances.

Sneha Wagh

I think he was too good in a lot of movies, it’s so difficult to choose one. My all-time favourites would be Don, Hum, Sholay and Piku. He is one of those people, who have adapted with the times. We all know that time doesn’t stay the same forever. Unlike many other superstars from the past, he has moved on with time. He is very humble and knows his craft inside out.

Ankit Bathla

He is a legend and I love pretty much all of his films. My favourite is Paa, it has taken acting to another level. I have heard that he is always on time to the set and is very dedicated to his character and the script. That’s what fascinates me.

Sara Arfeen Khan

Silsila was one of my favourites. Even today, if you watch it, you will see how intense and real it is and has no overrated emotions or drama. The best think about Mr Bachchan is his respect for time. He is always punctual, no matter what, and this is one of the greatest attributes one can have.

Jasmin Bhasin

No matter how much I praise Amitabh Bachchan, it will always fall short. He is, by far, the best actor in Bollywood. Everyone talks about his dedication to his roles, how he is always on time and how he appreciated other actors. There is so much to learn from him. While I love all his films, the more recent ones like Paa and Piku are my favourite.

Hrishikesh Pandey

I want to wish him Happy Birthday and a long life. I love almost all his films. His performance in each one is great. The best part about his acting style is that he gets into the character and makes it convincing. Even in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, his cameo made was what made the film different. I am his biggest fan. My favourite films are Agneepath, Khuda Gawah and many more. The character in Agneepath is larger-than-life. He is very humble and very well read. He is an idol father, son and husband. He is simple in spite of being such a great star. He is the biggest star and always will be.

Neha Saxena

I love every film of Mr Bachchan because he is a legend who has made us cry, laugh and live every emotion. But, Kabhi Kabhi has been my favourite because when he makes romance, love and passion come alive on screen. The best thing about Mr Bachchan is his humility, his grace and his chivalrousness. He makes everyone feel so special.

Hardik Sangani

It’s very difficult to choose one film from his long list. I like Sholay the most, it’s a cult film and I enjoy watching it even today. The best thing about him is to see him working so passionately even at this age, I feel no one else could even go near to the benchmark which he has set!

Priyanka Negi

I love every film of Mr Bachchan because he is a legend, who through his films, has made us cry, laugh and live every emotion. Out of all his films, Kabhi Kabhi is my favourite because he has truly made romance, love and passion come alive on screen. The best thing about Mr Bachchan is his humility, his grace and his chivalrousness. He makes everyone feel so special.
