Big B wins hands down!

The votes are in and democracy has once again thrown up a surprise!Amitabh Bachchan may be Bollywood’s most beloved icon and the biggest B on the B(ollywood) circuit, but he seems to have hung on to his youth far too long!
Sorry Dev Saab, the public has spoken and they think that you need to put in a lot more effort into hanging on to your youth. Perhaps in your next film you can play the role of a twenty year old and follow it up with even more youthful characters? You have won so many accolades. Surely the crown of the Evergreen Baadshah wont elude you. In the meantime check out your rival’s unrivalled youth:


  1. Really? Amitabh? I thought he'd played his age since the early 90's! Shows how little I know--good thing I refrained from voting due to ignorance. :-)

  2. The song I've attached is from his 1999 movie Sooryavansham where he doubles as an autocratic father and his poor uneducated son. The father part was OK but he looked too old and spent to play the younger character! Thankfully this is his last appearance (as far as I know) in a youthful role.
