Amitabh Bachchan is a legendary actor who has been part of Bollywood for more than four decades. This angry young man is referred as the 'Shahenshah' of Bollywood. Big B has appeared in 180 films in his career of 47 long years.
But he is in the limelight these days for not a good reason. Recently, this Bollywood actor was charged due to non-payment of taxes and holding hidden account in the offshore companies.
Check out some other wrong choices made by Big B in his professional life.
Indian audience was not convinced with the strange role of Big B in this movie. Amitabh Bachchan played the role of an elderly person falling in love with a teenage girl. The audience was just unable to take the respectable and legendary actor in such a strange role. The passionate kiss shared between Amitabh and Jiah became the talk of the town but it didn't work in favor of the movie.
Big B won the 8th Lok Sabha general elections from Allahabad in 1984 but he resigned soon after three years. Big B said, "Venturing into politics was a mistake. I entered the field in the flow of emotions. But then I realised that emotions are very different from reality in the political arena. So I gave up. I have never thought of going back to politics since then."
Ajooba was big time failure of Big B's career. The movie was inspired by 'One Thousand and One Nights' and was the directorial debut of Shashi Kapoor. This flop movie raised several eyebrows on Amitabh's talent.
ABCL is the production house of Big B which went bankrupt soon after its establishment. The movies produced by ABCL didn't earn him any profits and he was left with no other choice but to close it down.
I wonder what made Big B to work in this B-grade movie. Both Amitabh Bachchan and newcomer Katrina Kaif failed to create any magic in this movie. The movie literally had no proper story line which made it fail terribly at the box office.
Amitabh Bachchan had an argument with the media house in 1975. Big B tried to shut down Stardust which was publishing many articles on him at that time. All the magazines were affected and they formed an association to ban the actor. None of the magazines were interested in publishing anything about him. After 15 years, Big B got stuck in legal battle due to Bofors scandal. Amitabh's career suffered a major setback due to which his PR team contacted media houses to write about him.
The Bofors scandal created problems between Big B and Gandhi family. Big B decided to get in Samajwadi Party after Amar Singh helped him in his financial crunch. Later, Amar Singh was forced to leave the party but Jaya Bachchan stayed with Samajwadi party. This created complications between Big B and Amar Singh.
