    Which woman played a pivotal role in making Amitabh Bachchan one of the most versatile actors?

    As an actor, Amitabh Bachchan is truly unprecedented. There has been no controversy over his performance since his debut in "Seven Hindustani" films in 1969, but it was not easy for him to make it into the film industry.
    Amitabh's mother Teji Bachchan was a friend of the then Prime Minister Mrs.Indira Gandhi.
    It is said that Gandhi once asked Nargis to help Amitabh in the industry. And she arranged a few auditions for Amitabh when Sunil Dutt cast him for his under-production movie Reshma Aur Shera in 1971.
    But due to Bachan's flop movie track record, no other actress has agreed to work with him in Zanzir film. But Jaya Bhaduri, his girlfriend came to his rescue, though she had earlier been advised by her co-star Rajesh Khanna to stay away from Amitabh.
    After the marriage, Jaya removed herself from the film world for the sake of the Bachan family, today's Bachchan was newly born.
    Now which woman's contribution do you think more?

    Surely getting a firm place in the film Industry in spite of having flops, the credit must goes to whom they have adjusted and agreed to cast again and that risk would have paved way for greater achievement. In the film Abhiman, the ego clash between Amitabh and Jaya was shown and the same would have happened with many actors. But for Amitabh though the initial hiccup must have been there, then he found himself a knack through the voice modulations and even portraying such characters of serious nature which earned the acclaims of Dileep Kumar. Today Amitabh stand tall in the film Industry not for the roles, because of his presence in the small screen through other programs and thus not only acting and being connected with social media also brings in name and fame and that is being sustained and continued.

    He got help from all the ladies mentioned in the post. Probably who rejected him might have helped him more. Once he came to know about the rejection by many star heroines he might have determined in his mind that he should prove himself as the best actor so that all the heroines who rejected him will be after him to recommend their candidatures to the films.
    His mother and Indira Gandhi helped him in initiating his career. Then Jaya helped him to continue his journey on the right path and see the peaks. Above all his own performance and hard work carved a way for him to reach the peak. In addition to all these the blessings of God are there on him and that helped him to become the best actor in Bollywood.

    always confident
