Patience and Perseverance: Despite facing rejection at the start of his career, Mr Bachchan faced rejections, not once or twice but many times.

While in the 80s the actor nearly escaped a fatal accident on the sets of Coolie, later in 90s he took the voluntary retirement, he started Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd (ABCL). The company faced a major financial crisis in less than 4 years and Big B lost everything he had. But once again, he rose like a phoenix and came back with the first installment of Kaun Banega Crorepati and rest as we all know is history.
Love and respect for parents: No matter how much you evolve, parents are always the one you should bow your heads in front of. We have always seen the Shahenshah of the Hindi film industry showering his parents with utmost respect.
Experimenting with roles: From Cheeni Kum to Paa, Amitabh Bachchan took the road less traveled and carved his name on it. The megastar was always willing to take chances which rightly paid him off.
Staying humble and grounded: Be it his birthday or any other special occasion, Mr Bachchan never fails to greet his fans. The actor has neither shied away from extending his support during a national calamity nor has he disrespected a fan.
