Big B is the only actor ever to work in the remake of his own movie. He was seen in the 2007 movie ‘Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag’ as the villain which was the remake of the 1975 classic ‘Sholay’.

Amitabh Bachchan was also the first Asian actor to have his wax model being displayed at Madame Tussaud’s in London.

Amitabh Bachchan is quite the celebrated actor as he has won four National Awards and fifteen Filmfare Awards. He was also honoured by the government with the Padma Shri in 1984, the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015. The Government of France honoured him with its highest civilian honour, Knight of the Legion of Honour, in 2007.

Well, we hope that Big B keeps making the nation proud just like that with his excellent acting chops and once again we wish him a very happy birthday.
