Amitabh Bachchan, the megastar in the film industry, has sent gratitude to his legion of fans as he celebrates 52 years in the film industry.

Bachchan fondly remembered the day he signed his debut film, Saat Hindustani, in 1969. “Aaj hi ke din film industry mein pravesh kiya tha… Feb 15, 1969 .. 52 years !! aabhaar,” Bachchan tweeted in reply to a follower’s post that celebrated his over five-decade long journey in the movies.

Bachchan had, three years ago on the same date, shared with fans that he signed Saat Hindustani the day he arrived in Mumbai. he tweeted at the time: “49 years ago I came to the city of dreams and signed my first film .. 'Saat Hindustani’ on Feb 15, 1969.”

The 78-year-old actor also reflected on the landmark date in his blog post, where he wrote that the date became special only because his fans, whom he calls “extended family”, remembered and celebrated it.

“As the night slips into the next day… it slips into the gap of 52 years of my commencement in the film world… a chapter that the very effective concerned and loving Ef remember and portray through their wishes and communications and artistic representations,” the actor wrote.

“It is most alluring to see and hear and read what they gift .. had they not it would have been just another day, one that was spent in the struggle of life.”

Saat Hindustani, written and directed by Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, was an action drama about seven Indians, who fight to liberate Goa from the Portuguese colonial rule. The major cast also included Utpal Dutt, AK Hangal and Anwar Ali. Saat Hindustani was released in November 1969, marking Bachchan’s arrival on the big screen.

Bachchan faced obstacles in his movie career with the release of Bombay to Goa in 1972 after an acceptable performance in Anad, a movie produced by Hrishikesh Mukherjee in 1971.

But the career took turn with the release of Prakash Mehra’s Zanjeer in 1973, which was not only a huge success at the box-office but also established Bachchan’s image as an angry young man, one that holds a strong recall value even four decades later.

Bachchan remains the biggest figure in the Hindi film industry through his ability reinvent according to the times and his diligence.

The actor dominated the Indian film industry across all genres till early ’90s, and only slow down when young actors sprang up to showcase their talents.
