Bachchan is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential actors in the history of Indian cinema.
So total was his dominance of the movie scene in the 1970s and 1980s that the French director François Truffaut called him a "one-man industry."

He is the most-nominated performer in any major acting category at Filmfare, with 39 nominations overall.
