Amitabh Bachchan is fondly called Big B, Shahenshah of Bollywood and Angry Young Man. But a little-known fact was that the actor was named Inquilaab Srivastava at birth. The veteran actor revealed that his last name, ‘Bachchan’ was his father's, legendary poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan's, poetic pseudonym. The Bachchan surname stayed on because his father opposed the caste system, which was obvious in their surname Srivastav.

Jalsa, a gift?

Amitabh Bachchan’s luxurious bungalow, Jalsa is considered a special place by fans who visit from around the world. Every Sunday, his fervent followers gather at the gates to catch sight of the superstar. But another unknown fact is that Big B never purchased Jalsa. It was gifted to him by producer NC Sippy, who initially owned the house, for the grand success of their 1982 film, ‘Satte Pe Satta’. Films like 'Chupke Chupke ', ‘Anand’ and ‘Namak Haram’ have been shot at this house.

Amitabh Bachchan is a multi-talented man. Beyond his impressive acts and humanitarian traits, the veteran actor is also ambidextrous. Big B can write well with both hands, which is a rare ability. Big B loves writing handwritten letters, and often pens special notes, and appreciates young actors for their performances.

You won’t believe what Big B's first job was!

Being one of the highest-paid actors in the late 70s and 80s, even today he is on every filmmaker’s wish list. However, before achieving this feat, Big B began his journey as a worker in a shipping firm. This job was in Calcutta, wherein he worked as an executive with Shaw & Wallace, and as a freight broker for Bird and Co. His first salary would amount to Rs 500.
