As per Live India, Big B was friends with Ramola when he was working as a shipping executive in Kolkata. One of their daughters, Naina, is married to actor Kunal Kapoor. Bhim, their other child, is an investment banker while Nilima is an aeronautical engineer. Namrata, their third daughter is a photographer and poet by profession.

Amitabh and Ajitabh, who reportedly share a five-year age gap, have a close bond with each other.

Ajitabh advised Big B to join films

In an episode of KBC, Big B spoke about how Ajitabh told him to join films. Ajitabh told him: Dekho tumhe filmo me jaana chaiye (You should join films).” "Humlog naukri kar rhe the Kolkata mein, unhone hamari tasveer li or bhej diya ek contest me  (We used to work in Kolkata. He took my pictures and sent them to a contest).” The actor stated that he got rejected in the contest, but Ajitabh had managed to change his mind. Sr. Bachchan then quit his job after this incident.

Suffice it to say. all the members of the Bachchan family are well-settled in their respective fields.
