What do you say about a man who is ‘Rishtey mein tumhare baap’? Who can ‘talk English, walk English and laugh English’? Who is ‘Parampara, Pratishtha, Anushasan’, but at the same time is aware that ‘Zindagi ka tambu teen bambuo pe khada hai’.
Alright, enough with the hints. We know that you know that we’re talking about Amitabh Bachchan. And today, as Bollywood’s Shahenshah turns 77, we’re looking back 10 of his most iconic dialogues. Hainn!

3. Rishte mein toh hum tumhare baap lagte hain, naam hai Shahenshah – Shahenshah
