Amitabh, who prefer to stay grounded and polite with everyone, can never be seen boasting of his status and stardom. Coming from a non-celebrity background, Amitabh can be said a self-made man. Never deterring from hardship and constantly moving ahead despite of all hurdles is something which defines Amitabh's personality best.
The initial days of Amitabh was a struggling one and he had also gone through various dark phases in life like any other common man.
Pleading for work in Mumbai:
Amitabh tasted success only after the positive response of his film Zanjeer and it happened after 12 consecutive flop films in his initial days. After trying his luck in a Filmfare contest in Kolkata, Amitabh headed to Mumbai. Despite his tall and appealing personality, Amitabh was bound to suffer a lot of rejection. He then along with his group of friends decided to advertise himself in Mumbai. He used to roam around in the city by holding his pic in his hand and pleading everyone to offer him work. Known for his modest and humble attitude, Amitabh while reminiscing his struggling days said it was also an interesting one.
Amitabh Bachchan’s first car:
Amitabh, who was born in a middle-class family said that getting a first car in the house was like celebration for the family in that era. His first car was Ford Prefect which was a small one. The car was mostly driven by Amitabh’s mother as his father developed a fear of driving, after meeting an accident, revealed Amitabh.
The childhood fear of Amitabh:
He used to play on roads and was badly hit by a bull near Allahabad University one day. He was so scared after that incident that he avoided to visit that place in future. Amitabh said that earlier, he used to stay as a tenant in Allahabad.
