As Amitabh Bachchan completes 50 years in Bollywood, Abhishek Bachchan pens a heartfelt note for his Paa and ICON

Amitabh Bachchan is unarguably to be one of the most iconic and versatile Bollywood actors and not to forget, he is aging like fine wine at the age of 76. Interestingly, February 15 marked the beginning of the cinematic journey fifty years ago and signed his debut film, Saat Hindustani, on this date in 1969. Ever since then, Big B has seen several ups and downs in his illustrious career but he always fought against the odds to become the megastar that he is today.

Now as he completed 50 years in the Bollywood film fraternity, his son and actor Abhishek Bachchan posted a heartfelt note for his "icon, best friend, guide, best critic, greatest support, idol..... HERO." He also posted a picture of himself wearing a quirky Amitabh Bachchan sweatshirt, check it out:

Meanwhile, the superstar's daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda shared a cool graphic post for his dad on Twitter as well, in order to congratulate him on completing 50 years in the Hindi film industry.
