Caricature of Amitabh Bachchan of KBC – Kaun Banega Twitter Crorepati?

Amitabh Bachchan, the Bollywood hero whose charm defies age, is now the most followed Bollywood Celebrity with 1 Crore (10 Million) twitter followers! So now we know Kaun Bana hai Twitter-Crorepati.

(BTW, that MIB picture of his on his twitter-header is terrible. The shadow behind him mixes with the black he wears and gives him a hunched back. If Mr. Bachchan listens to you, please ask him to change the header!)

caricature or Amitabh Bachchan the bollywood actor with 1 crore twitter followers and who anchors the program Kaun Banega Crorepati. This cartoon shows him perched on his KBC chair.

Main Ban Gaya Twitter Crorepati. Aap mein se Kaun Banega Crorepati?

You cannot imagine the India of the seventies and the eighties without Amitabh. He was everywhere. He was in homes, in theaters, and more so, he lived in the Indian heart. Kids would try to copy his walk, his slouch, his angry look, his booming voice, his characteristic dance-step…everything that he did in his movies became part of the Indian popular culture almost instantly.

When he started in the movies, towering well over six-feet-two-inches, he looked totally out of place (The average height of the Indian male is 5 ft 5 inches, so you can imagine how he must’ve towered above everyone else.) Like most extra-tall people he slouched, and he was thin as a reed. Those weren’t the days when muscular hunks became heroes – that look was usually reserved for the villains. And yet, this lanky and awkward man with his angry young man looks ended up becoming the Bollywood super-star of the twentieth century.

Today Amitabh is everything that every Indian man his age desires to be. He is currently the most popular celebrity in Bollywood, he is good dad to Abhishek Bachchan, a good father-in-law to Aishwarya, and perhaps a loving, doting grandad too. That he’s been a dutiful husband towards his wife Jaya, is something that cannot be debated. There was a time, right after Silsila was released, that the rumor of his affair with Rekha had begun to threaten his marriage – and yet, unlike many other bollywood marriages, his marriage weathered the storm. Were Amitabh and Rekha in love with each other…or not? And…to cap it all, he also blogs! Here’s the link to Amitabh Bachchan’s blog.

He has worked in more than 190 movies. Some of his movies that I’ve loved watching are Anand, Zanjeer, Abhimaan, Namakharam, Deewar, Sholay, Kabhi-kabhi, Mukaddar ki Sikandar, Lawaris, Satte-pe-satta, Coolie, Sharabi…I give up! The list appears to be interminable…I guess I’ve watched about 60 of his movies, including Bhootnath! It’s best I don’t list them. I have a feeling that most Indians must have watched more Amitabh movies than I have, so this list isn’t really going to result in anything except Babaji ka Thullu.

About this Caricature of Amitabh Bacchan:
If you’ve never watched KBC, you might wonder why Mr. Bachchan is perched on this rather high, uncomfortable looking chair. Well, those are the chairs they use in the KBC program. I guess the idea is to make the contestants feel uneasy while they answer the questions.
