So in this article we are going to talk about Amitabh Bachchan net worth. Those of you who are not too fascinated with Bollywood productions might have never even seen the face of this actor. But for most Indians, as well as for Bollywood fans from other parts of the worlds, He is a real hero. And, I must say, he is being paid as such – as for the day, Amitabh Bachchan net worth already amounts to $400 millions!

This is more money than most of world – famous Hollywood actors, Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Ben Cruise, Bill Cosby, Keanu Reeves, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt or Michael Douglas, has ever had! The only actors I can currently think of that has the same amount of money or are even richer than Amitabh are Jack Nicolson (with $400 million), Mel Gibson (with $425 in his account) and Liz Taylor (the lady currently owns capital and assets worth some $600 million). On the other hand Bachchan’s fortunes are still significantly inferior to the net worth of his colleague and compatriot, Shahrukh Khan – an actor, film producer and tv personality who has a net worth of $600 million.
And how did Amitabh Bachchan net worth climbed to its current heights? Well obviously, he has earned most of his fortune by appearing in movies. His acting career started in 1969, when Amitabh landed a role of Anwar Ali in Saat Hindustani, but it was not until 1971 that the young Indian has earned critical acclaim. The role that has garnered Bachchan his first Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award was in Andand. In this movie Amitabh portrayed a talented doctor with a cynical view of life. The next role that brought Amitabh into the centre of Indian media attention was Zanjeer, the film that reached the cinemas in 1973. Unlike in his previous roles, this time Bachchan portrayed an „an angry young man“. As it was one of the most iconic performances of Bollywood in history, the label „angry young man of Bollywood“ has stuck to the actor himself. Despite that, the actor was still just flooded with offers to appear in movies of all genres and take up the roles of all kinds of characters, from romantic heroes to mischievous villains. During this period Amitabh Bachchan net worth has grown faster than he could have ever dreamed.
However, it would be a mistake to claim that Amitabh has always been extremely lucky. From 1988 to 1992 there was a significant slump in his career. During this period nearly all the movies featuring Amitabh has failed at the box office, forcing the actor into semi-retirement. But since his comeback in 1996, Amitabh Bachchan net worth has continued to grow on a steady (more or less) line.
