BIRTHDAY WISH FROM THE PLAYERS, THEATRE SOCIETY OF KMC
“Happy Birthday to the most iconic and versatile actor, a legend, who inspires millions of people everyday. We always proudly say: Amitabh Bachchan humaare college se hain (Amitabh Bachchan is from our college). It’s an honour to be at a place where you were once. And, even more so, doing what you did (acting). We wish you all the best for the years to come.”
“Main jab bhi kisise dushmani mol leta hoon… saste mehenge ki parvah nahi karta.”
“Bachchan sir’s rustic look in Deewar is one of his most iconic ones. He’s an inspiration for every aspiring actor, and a reason behind their choice of profession, too,” says Divyanshu Mamgain, B Sc (Physical Sciences), third year.
“Mujhe joh sahi lagta hai main karta hoon ... woh chahe bhagwan ke khilaaf ho, samaaj ke khilaaf ho, police, kanoon ... yah phir poore system ke khilaaf kyun na ho.”
“Sarkar (2005) was so intense that it could have been made greater only by an actor with a stature like Amitabh sir has. He made it iconic,” Aaryaman Singh, Economics (Hons), first year.

“Kahaan don, jo zara zara si baat pe goliyan chala dete the, aur kahan main, mujhe to goliyaan tak khelna nahi aata!”
“Amitabhji’s dual role in Don was a perfect balance between suave and goofy. I absolutely love the role,” says Raunak Singh, Sanskrit (Hons), second year.
“Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, poora naam. baap ka naam Dinanath Chauhan, maa ka naam Suhasini Chauhan. Gaon Mandwa. Umar 36 Saal, 9 mahina, 8 Din aur yeh solva ghanta chaalu hai.. Aye”
“This dialogue is something every Amitabh fan just has to know! Yeh nahi pata to tum fan hi nahi,” says Paras Nagpal, B Com (Honours), first year.
