Amitabh Bachchan was born to well known Hindi poet Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan and his wife Teji Bachchan. Bachchan was initially named Inquilaab, inspired from the famous phrase Inquilaab Zindabad. However, at the suggestion of fellow poet Sumitranandan Pant, his father changed the name to Amitabh which means, 'the light that would never go off'. Not many may know that apart from being fondly called as the Big B, he is also called Munna.
