Amitabh Bachchan's stardom: Young Amitabh equally deserves the credit

Actor Amitabh Bachchan might have received immense stardom, but very few know that there is a child who deserves equal credit of Big B’s enormous fame and popularity. 

If you are a big Amitabh’s fan, you must have seen his superhit yesteryear film, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar. If you remember this film of Amitabh scene by scene, then you can also visualise that at the very beginning of the film a lean and thin boy makes an entry. The boy looked quite depressed, poor and struggles to earn for his survival.
