There were no films, no commercials, no projects for him. The star had begun to lose his charisma when he decided to save the company by doing what he could do the best – act. “There was a sword hanging on my head all the time. I spent many sleepless nights. One day, I got up early in the morning and went directly to Yash Chopraji and told him that I was bankrupt. I had no films.”

“My house and a small property in New Delhi were attached. Yashji listened coolly and then offered me a role in his film Mohabattein. I then started doing commercials, television and films. And I am happy to say today that I have repaid my entire debt of Rs 90 crore and am starting afresh,” Bachchan had told in an interview.

Bankrupt !!! This is mega star Amitabh Bachchan we are talking about.


One of the biggest Bollywood legends, Amitabh Bachchan, recently bought himself a new luxury car, a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Big B’s luxury car collection was already quite impressive, consisting of Mercedes-Benz SL500, Bentley Continental GT, Porsche Cayman S, Range Rover Vogue, Toyota Land Cruiser, Mini Cooper S, and Rolls Royce Phantom. Amitabh Bachchan’s new S-Class is reportedly the ‘350d’ model, which is priced at Rs. 1.38 crore (ex-showroom, pan India).


Going from top of the world to bankrupt and then again go up is not easy.

Hats Off Mr Bachchan.
