Amitabh Bachchan’s fans all over the world are celebrating the versatile actor’s 79th birthday today.
The actor has been an active face in Indian cinema since the 1970s, and his career has only grown since. Besides being in front of the camera, Bachchan has also provided his grand, baritone voice to narrate films.
It is interesting to note that Bachchan entered the cinema career as a voice over artist in 1969’s drama Bhuvan Shome. But before he was anywhere near an actor, let alone a star, he was rejected from an All India Radio job sometime in the ‘60s. Little did he know that fate had something bigger in store for him.
Soon he was recognised for his extraordinary voice, which audiences far and wide will never forget. Here is a look at some movies where Bachchan spread magic as narrator. Most of these films have gone on to break box office records or are considered cult classics. Can we assume that Bachchan’s voice has that magic touch?
