Big Hero Reveals About His Rs 90 Cr Debt

Big Hero Reveals About His Rs 90 Cr Debt

Amitabh Bachchan, the Big B of Bollywood and the nation's biggest star even at his age of 78 today has shared something from his life that disturbed him a lot. 

It is known that his ABCL (Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd) went into huge losses and got into deep debt in 1999 due to the failure of the production, distribution and even the event management. 

Big B shared how the situation went grave for the first time in his 44 year old career. 

He confessed long ago, “I owed Rs 90 Cr for different people. I paid back one and all, including Doordarshan. When they asked for the interest component, I did commercials in lieu for them. I can never forget how creditors used to land at our door, be abusive, threatening and demanding, and worse still, when they came for ‘kudkee’ at Prateeksha, our residence".

“Without a doubt that was one of the darkest moments in my 44-year professional career. It made me sit and think, I looked at the options before me and evaluated different scenarios. The answer came pat - I know how to act. I got up and walked to Yashji (Chopra, filmmaker), who stayed behind my house. I implored him to give me work. That is when the worm turned, he gave me Mohabbatein,” he shared.

Amitabh made his digital debut with Gulabo Sitabo last year and now his coming projects include Chehre, Jhund, Brahmastra, MayDay and Goodbye.

He is also making his return to Television with Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, the registrations for which began in May.
