So much love and gratitude for your kindness May this new decade bring forth all the joy, good health, peace and blessings

Keep growing! Keep inspiring! And keep making the world a better place We love you Sir!


Karan Johar: AMITABH BACHCHAN is not just an institution, a Legend , a Masterclass in acting... he is a feeling! A feeling that takes us back to the first time we whistled and clapped on a superstar entry, applauded a punchline, danced in the isles of a cinema…

A feeling that trained our minds to what a HERO in cinema is and must always be … A feeling that defines cinema memories etched in our minds forever ….

I feel blessed to have my name as director in his voluminous and stunning filmography… blessed to have grown up in front of him and even at age 5 have felt the thump of his stardom when he walked into a room…

There will be artists and megastars and celluloid masters in Indian Cinema but there will never be another AMITABH BACHCHAN…. Happy birthday Amit Uncle… this decade like every other will be yours.....

Kunal Kemmu: Maa baap ki ungali pakad ke chalna seekha Aur aap ko screen par dekh kar seeti maarna

I don’t know if I can separate my love for Hindi films from my love for you and the roles you play on screen since you are the inspiration for so many if not all who wanted to be that man on the 70mm screen

I wish you all the happiness and health sir I am one of your billion fans who loves you and truly believe that “Aap jaha khade hote hai, line wahi se shuru hoti hai”

Happy Happy Birthday Sir @amitabhbachchan.

Aahana Kumra: I still remember the first time I met you, you introduced yourself to me with the words , “Hi, I’m Amitabh Bachchan!” The man who needs no introduction didn’t feel the need to show that he was a star but to treat me as an equal and till present day nothing has changed sir!

It’s not everyday that you have the opportunity to stand next to an icon, leave alone work with him! Your humility, your promptness, punctuality and your larger than life outlook towards your work and life is what makes you a legend!

Thank you so much sir for always loving so much! Here’s wishing you from the bottom of my a Happy 80th @amitabhbachchan sir! Wishing you a health, wealth, longevity and happiness always! You are LEGEND!
