Amitabh Bachchan achieved more international recognition and success when he portrayed the character of Meyer Wolfsheim in Baz Luhrmann’s drama film entitled “The Great Gatsby”, where he co-starred with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke. A box office hit with more than $351 million grossed around the world, “The Great Gatsby” was Amitabh Bachchan’s Hollywood debut.

A famous actor, how rich is Amitabh Bachchan? According to sources, Amitabh Bachchan’s net worth is estimated to be a remarkable $400 million. Undoubtedly, most of Amitabh Bachchan’s net worth and wealth comes from his acting career.

Amitabh Bachchan was born in 1942, in United Provinces, British India. Bachchan studied at the Sherwood College and later continued his studies in the Delhi University. Bachchan’s film debut was in an award-winning Hindi film called “Bhuvan Shome”, where he was a voice narrator. Shortly after that, Amitabh Bachchan landed his very first film role in a movie directed and written by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas called “Saat Hindustani”. Two years after his debut on television screens, Bachchan rose to stardom in an action-thriller film “Zanjeer”, which brought him a lot of commercial success.

Amitabh Bachchan’s remarkable performance in “Zanjeer” landed him many award-winning and commercially successful roles, including appearances in such films as “Namak Haraam”, “Deewar”, and “The Great Gambler” to name a few.

Even though Amitabh Bachchan was most famous during 1970s and 1980s, he returned to prominence in 2000, when he starred alongside Shahrukh Khan in a film produced by Yash Chopra called “Mohabbatein”. A critical and commercial success with more than 741 million rupees grossed in the box office, “Mohabbatein” signified Amitabh Bachchan’s return to the dominance of the Indian movie scene.

#Quote
1 Rajesh Khanna for me will remain the only superstar in true sense. He appeared in 153 films by 1991 - that is in a span of 25 years which already included 101 solo hero films and did only 21 multi star-cast films. Everyone knows his involvement in music of his films.He was so hardworking that each year he had minimum 3 films releasing and still managed to give 95 jubilee hits!! Hats off to him. My achievements are no-where near him. In-fact I did more multi star-cast films and less solo hero films than him. Once i got success in angry young man genre I had to stick to it and whenever I tried to do something different it was a failure so I stayed away from experimenting much. But Khanna never bothered about such things. In-spite of not working much after 1991 he has done 180 films and Am far behind him. I have highest regards for him since the 1965 when I heard about him then my respect only increased when I worked with him and till date I regard him as a greater actor.
2 (1991) It was a dream come true for me because of there was this great admiration for Kaka and his phenomenal success. The hysteria that he evoked was witnessed for first time in Hindi Films. And we were all part of that hysteria that followed Kaka. I got famous purely because I was working with Rajesh Khanna. People came and asked me questions like "How does he look?" So I became very important, thanks to Kaka. I have always maintained that person who is my senior will always remain senior. I have never argued about billings because I don't think they mean anything. And I have had always greatest respect for Kaka.
3 (2000) Whether it was in sets of Anand or Namak Haram, we never bickered or argued or tried to upstage one another in any manner. On the contrary Kaka does'n know this, but when I was working in Calcutta and keen to join films, the inspiration to join was Mr. Rajesh Khanna. Kaka had succeeded in Filmfare contest and I said "My God, here is an excellent opportunity where somebody is actually auditioned and here this gentleman who has made it and is doing so well." Then wonder of wonders in 2 years Hrishida asked to work with Kaka. It was a dream come true for me.
4 His thoughts on working in Hollywood: "You don't see Indians in Hollywood films around which a story can revolve. As soon as we have a social presence in your society, I am sure there will be many actors from our part of the world that will be acting in Hollywood films. I have always been a great admirer of Marlon Brando, Al Paccinno, Robert De Niro. I would love to walk into the frame, hold their briefcase!"
5 The amount of things I have been through and the remarkable ways in which the body has reacted is just phenomenal. No wonder I became religious, because you don't know why something's happening to you and you don't know how you bounced back.
6 (Referring to Abhishek Bachchan) "Like any other father I feel proud to see my son on the silver screen."
7 I wish I had time to learn all the languages of our country, I wish I knew how to play a musical instrument. There are many things that I feel I have missed out on.
8 Everyone must accept "that we will age and age is not always flattering".
9 I have never really been confident about my career at any stage.
