About the Book

First Prize, General Books, English Language Publications, Federation of Indian Publishers (FIP) Awards for Excellence in Publishing, 1998-99.

Amitabh Bachchan is not only Indian cinema’s biggest phenomenon, but also the actor of the millennium (voted in a BBC internet poll). His charisma extends far beyond Indian borders. He is a perfect chameleon who created the persona of an angry young man and rebelled, entertained, danced and romanced with equal elan, enthralling audiences for over three decades. In this absorbing book, the author captures the roller-coaster ride of a superstar through incisive, introspective interviews.
