Big B later appeared in a bunch of flop films, the string which ended with 'Zanjeer' in 1973. The film was a blockbuster and catapulted him into the 'angry young man' avatar.

Talking about male actors in Bollywood, they tend to have a hard time accepting their age and playing their age. Big B realized this in the late 90s and suddenly revamped his professional choices. Since then, he has given us so many iconic roles in films like Piku, Sarkar, Gulabo Sitabo, Bunty Aur Babli, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. Such a level of fame and interesting filmography is hard to replicate. We just hope he keeps acting and giving us great roles in films.
