New Delhi:

Words can do very little justice to the popularity and fan following of veteran Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan. The superstar has left no stone unturned to impress the audience with his stellar acting talent and versatility as an artiste. It would not be wrong to say that he is one of the most loved stars in the history of Indian cinema and is highly respected by fans across the world. From his unique baritone to his signature dance moves, Big B – as his fans fondly call him – has always been a class apart.

On his 79th birthday, we take a look at some of the treasured throwback pictures that Amitabh Bachchan has shared on Instagram over the years. Join us on this walk down memory lane.

First on the list is the old picture that Amitabh Bachchan shared for his look test for the film Reshma Aur Shera. The film was a crime drama released in 1971. In the picture, she is wearing a traditional turban with two neckpieces and earrings.

While we know Amitabh Bachchan as a great actor, we also know him as the son of the great Hindi poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Amitabh Bachchan often misses his father and this Instagram post is proof of it. In the picture, we can see the actor hugging his father. He captioned the picture, “Dad.”

In this photo we can see Amitabh Bachchan as a child, he is accompanied by his brother and mother. In this monochrome shot, all three are looking at the camera. In the caption, he said, “That very special day when you just had to be photographed. Ma, Chhota Bhai and Moi. You wanted to show off your first bush shirt.”

Not just in India, Amitabh Bachchan has managed to gain fans across the globe and this picture is a testament to his worldwide popularity. This is still from his visit to Moscow in the 1990s where he is surrounded by fans trying to catch a glimpse of the actor and asking for autographs.

The legendary actor often likes to treat his fans with old pictures and we are glad that he does. We love this picture of Amitabh Bachchan having fun on the sets of Mr Natwarlal. “Cricket on location, while the shot is being prepared. Mr Natwarlal shoots in Kashmir, I guess…” he wrote.

Amitabh Bachchan is a prolific actor as well as a family man. This is a beautiful throwback monochrome picture that shows him with his wife, actress Jaya Bachchan and kids, Shweta and Abhishek. In the picture the family is celebrating Diwali.

Here is another picture from the diary of the Bachchan family. In this picture, we can see that the junior Bachchan, Abhishek is sitting on the shoulders of his father, while Jaya Bachchan is holding the baby at the back. It is clear from the image that it is Holi as they are all wrapped up in festive colours.

Once again, we get a glimpse of the iconic actor in its element from the 1982 film Khud-Daar. In the picture, the actor is seen breaking the dahi handi. Amitabh Bachchan shared a picture on the occasion of Krishna Janmashtami.

Amitabh Bachchan is extremely proud of his daughter and does not shy away from expressing his love on social media. On Shweta’s birthday, Amitabh Bachchan posted a collage of one of his old pictures along with a recent picture. He captioned the photo, “Daughters are the best.”

When we are talking about the great actor and his best throwback moments we cannot forget this perfect family picture. In this image, we can see Amitabh Bachchan posing with his kids along with Jaya Bachchan. Young Shweta and Abhishek look so cute here.

Happy Birthday Amitabh Bachchan!
