The Gentle Giant – Amitabh Bachchan on a Lighter note

By  | 



There must hardly be a genre that Amitabh Bachchan has not dabbled with. His dedication and hard work, not to forget the immense talent, towards the craft has resulted in providing the viewers with some enriching experience throughout his career and is still going strong.

We’ve seen him as a serious hero; the angry young man. We’ve seen him as a romantic hero, an action hero and also in myraid other roles. Each and every aspect of human emotion is portrayed by this stalwart in some pivotal roles that catapulted his career to staggering heights.

One of the best genres that I like watching Amitabh in is comedy. His timing is impeccable and tickles the funny bone. The most amazing thing with him is that he doesn’t hesitate while having those weird expressions or the fact that he has an image to maintain.
