Amitabh Bachchan has now become a tale rather than a name: the story of a dark, lanky young man from Allahabad who went on to become the greatest Bollywood superstar of all times. In 2000, AB was chosen as the host for a new TV game show, 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. The show became an enormous hit. Amitabh was voted as The Actor of the Millennium in a poll conducted by BBC, which featured such names as Lawrence Olivier and Marlon Brando. In the new millennium, Amitabh stunned his detractors with some superb performances in films such as 'Aks', 'Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham', 'Baghban', 'Khakee', 'Black', 'Nishabd', 'Dev', 'Last Lear' and 'Paa'.
