- He also tweeted a throwback pic with Rishi Kapoor
When it comes to Amitabh Bachchan, the cure for everything is throwback memories. And that's also why we love his social media activities so much! Big B, who made his debut in Bollywood in 1969 with Saat Hindustani, shared a photo from that year, from his first ever photoshoot for a magazine some 51 years ago. Big B, who will turn 78 in October this year, must have been 27 or 26 at that time. In his tweet, Big B revealed as a newbie in Bollywood, he thought he neither had "style" nor was a "star" material during the photoshoot for Star & Style magazine. "My very first photoshoot for a film mag - 'Star & Style' - prodded and goaded to a very shy reticent and reluctant me by famed, most feared journalist of the times - Devyani Chaubal. Obviously there was no 'star' or 'style' in the project but Devyani thought so," he wrote in his tweet.
Here's presenting Amitabh Bachchan from 1969. He will steal your heart:

Meanwhile, Big B also dug out fond throwback memories with Rishi Kapoor. Sharing a black and white photo from the sets of 1981 movie Naseeb, Big B wrote: "Shooting for the song Rang Jaamaake for film Naseeb, on a revolving set restaurant put up at Chandivali Studio... Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) as Chaplin, moi as matador. Manmohan Desai, the crazy genius director... song scenes, action, all on. Set on fire. Amazing times." Big B and Rishi Kapoor have also famously co-starred in films such as Kabhi Kabhie, Ajooba and Amar Akbar Anthony. They were recently seen together in 102 Not Out.
