It was on February 15, 1969, that "a tall, lean guy with intense eyes" walked the stairs of KA Abbas's office to sign his first movie, 'Saath Hindustani'.

"Struggles and uncertainties, successes and disappointments, accusations and controversies, ill health and months in hospital, all such a vivid kaleidoscope of moments, events, images simply unbelievable and unimaginable," blogs Amitabh. How true! Bachchan's life has had the quality of being, at once, a biography and a fairytale!

After his recent bout of illness, Amitabh Bachchan returns to the big screen with Ram Gopal Varma's 'Department', which releases this weekend.

Here are a few snaps and rare facts from the glorious career of the megastar who still remains the tallest peak in Indian Cinema.
