A living legend in Hindi-language cinema, Bachchan has made more than 180 films in a career spanning five decades. He is hailed by many as India’s greatest living actor, and is revered in his home nation.
Bachchan starred in his first film in 1969. Since then, he has dominated the silver screen for nearly half a century – most of India’s 70 years as an independent nation.
Tributes and well-wishes were sent to all members of the illustrious family, with Bachchan, 77, being particularly heralded on social media.
