Angry Young Man; Big B; Superstar; Icon: The epithets are many for Amitabh Bachchan-the man who has captured and held the imagination of Indians for several decades now. And yet, what could be more appropriate, more fitting for who he is and what he is than 'Legend'. Bachchan was the undisputed king of Bollywood for years-at one point of time, eight of his films were celebrating their silver jubilees simultaneously. Then came his fall from grace in the early Nineties. Today, he is back to where he was, and more. He has had five hits in 2005, is the host of a hugely successful game show, and is one of the most sought after brand ambassadors in India.

The Legend is Pradeep Chandra's tribute to the actor and the man. Chandra follows Bachchan's career, giving us a rare glimpses of him as a student, actor, family man, businessman and politician through interesting anecdotes and incidents. As a photographer who has captured Bachchan from his early days in cinema, Chandra has included exquisite stills from films, photographs, collages and artworks that encapsulate his charisma and intensity.

With a Foreword by Pritish Nandy, and guest writers Shobhaa De, Govind Nihalani, Rauf Ahmed, T.R. Gopalakrishnan and Srinivas Hebbar, this book is a unique biography of the legend.



Author Bio: A distinguished photojournalist, Pradeep Chandra has been closely associated with several national and international newspapers and magazines. He has worked with The Times of India Group for the last fifteen years and is currently deputy chief manager with Times Response.
