71 reasons to stay on top

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who continues to entertain movie buffs even after over four decades of his association with the world of entertainment, turned 71 on Friday. Bollywood celebrities saluted his energy and spirit, which, as one said is like a 17-year-old’s.

Celebrities like Irrfan Khan, Dhanush and Preity Zinta have also picked their favourite songs of the thespian, whose filmography includes memorable films like Kabhi Kabhie, Zanjeer, Sholay, Abhimaan, Silsila, Shahenshah, Baghban, Mohabbatein and Paa.

Here’s a pick from a million wishes he got - read what the celebrities have wished the actor, who is lovingly called Big B...

Irrfan Khan

God bless Mr Bachchan’s spirit and energy. My three favourite songs of Mr Bachchan are Kabhi kabhie mere dil mein khayaal aata hai (Kabhi Kabhie), Rang barse (Silsila) and Tum bhi chalo hum bhi chalen (Zameer).

Ayushmann Khurrana

He’s playing the best innings that an actor could ever play. He’s like Tendulkar of Indian cinema. He’s not only ahead of his contemporaries, he’s also ahead of all current superstars. A perfect representative of Indian cinema.

Preity Zinta

The Big B just gets better and better with time. His innings is just never-ending. I am close to the entire family. Aishwarya, Abhishek, Jaya aunty...I can't say I'm that close to Amit uncle. He is just so...up there, so distant and so mysterious.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Hazaaron saal jiye aap, swasth rahen (May you live for thousands of years and remain healthy). My favourite songs of Bachchan sahab are Neela aasman so gaya (Silsila), Do lafzaon ki hai dil ki kahaani (The Great Gambler).


Many happy returns to one of cinema's greatest icons. My three favourite songs of Bachchan sahab are Tere mere milan ki yeh raina (Abhimaan), Kabhi kabhie mere dil mein (Kabhi Kabhie) and Mere angane mein (Lawaaris).
