‘Pura naam, Vijay Dinanath Chauhan’: On Amitabh Bachchan’s Birthday, a Look at Iconic Dialogues by the Veteran Actor
Starting his career with the 1969 release Saat Hindustani, Amitabh Bachchan dealt with his own share of struggle before embarking on his journey to become the megastar he is today. At a time when very few leading men in Bollywood preferred action films, Bachchan donned the angry young man avatar with his portrayal of Police inspector Vijay in director Prakash Mehra’s Zanjeer.
Bachchan featured in many similar iconic characters written by writer Salim- Javed. The team became a superhit combination and worked together in many iconic films in the 1970s and 80s.
One thing that separated Bachchan from other actors in his league was his dialogue delivery. Even decades after the release of many of his films, Bachchan’s dialogues are still afresh in the audience’s mind.
