Did you know? Amitabh Bachchan had to borrow money from his staff to put food on the table during his tough days?
Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most iconic actors in the Indian film industry. The actor in office for several decades has become a global icon. But did you know that there were times when the actor also had his nasty downfalls? Read on to find out!
Speaking of the same, did you know that the Don (1978) actor once had a huge financial crisis and had no way to support his family? Otherwise, you’ll find everything you need to know below.
Well, it was during an interview, when Amitabh Bachchan’s son, Abhishek Bachchan, talked about his family’s difficult times while studying in the United States. The actor claimed he quit his acting class halfway through so he could come back and support his father at the time. Abhishek opened up on The Ranveer Show podcast saying, “My family was going through a tough financial time. And I just felt that as a son, even though I might not be qualified at the time, I needed to be with my dad. Even for moral support. He’s a big guy on moral support. He likes to know his family.
Continuing on the same Abhishek Bachchan also explained, “I can’t be sitting here in Boston when my dad doesn’t know how he’s going to have dinner. And that was how bad it was. And he said it publicly. He had to borrow money from his staff to put food on the table. I just felt morally obligated to be with him. I called him and I was like ‘You know dad, I think I want to quit college halfway through and come back and just be with you, try to help you in any way. At least you will know that your boy is next to you and there for you.
Coming back to the present, Amitabh Bachchan is still golden on the big screens giving hit projects as he gets them. The actor starred in the film Jhund directed by Nagraj Manjule and released on March 4, 2022. He will now appear alongside Ajay Devgn in his highly anticipated film Runway 34.
