AB: The Legend (A Photographer's Tribute)
AB: The Legend (A Photographer's Tribute)
Description
From the Jacket:

Angry Young Man. Big B. Superstar. Icon. The epithets are many for AMITABH BACHCHAN-the man who has captured and held the imagination of Indians for several decades now. And yet, what could be more appropriate, more fitting for who he is and what he is than 'Legend'. Bachchan was the undisputed king of Bollywood for years-at one point of time, eight of his films were celebrating their silver jubilees simultaneously. Then came his fall from grace in the early Nineties. But Bachchan found his way back soon enough. Today, he is back to where he was, and more. He had five hits in 2005, in the host of a hugely successful game show, and is one of the most sought after brand ambassadors in India.

AB: The Legend is Pradeep Chandra's tribute to the actor and the man. Chandra follows Bachcha's career, giving us rare glimpses of him as a student, actor, family man, businessman and politician through interesting anecdotes and incidents. As a photographer who has captured Bachchan form his early days in cinema, Chandra has included exquisite stills from films, photographs, collages and artworks that encapsulate Bachchan's charisma and intensity.

Pritish Nandy, who has written the Foreword, and guest writers Shobhaa De, Govind Nihalani, Rauf Ahmed, T.R. Gopaalakrishnan and Srinivas Hebbar, have contributed to making this book a unique biography of the legend.

About the Author:

A distinguished photojournalist, PRADEEP CHANDRA has also been an actor, model and still photographer, and has written various news articles.

Chandra's first photograph, of actress Waheeda Rehman, appeared in Filmfare when he was in Class Four. His first pay packet was from a role in Shankar Mukherjee's film Sarhad, starring Dev Anand and Suchitra Sen. Years later the same director worked with Amitabh Bachchan in Faraar.

Chandra has been closely associated with several national and international newspapers and magazines during the span of his career as a photojournalist, including the Indian Express, The Week, Illustrated Weekly, Sunday Observer, Free Press Group, Independent and Bombay Times. He was associated with Asia Week, a sister publication of Time, for over a decade.

A keen follower of the arts, he has held several photo and art exhibitions and has also participated in art camps. His canvases feature in the collections of Dr Vijay Mallya, Shobhaa De, Moiz Lokhandwala, the Hiranandanis, Vikas Kasliwal, and in five-star resorts like Le Royal Meridien and the Retreate.

He was worked with the Times of India Group for the last fifteen years and is currently deputy chief manager with Times Response.

He lives in Mumbai with his wife Veena and son Vibhor. His daughter, Priyanka, is married and also lives in Mumbai.

CONTENTS
The Early Days 18
One thing that ran through Bachchan's long years of anonymity as a fever in his blood was his love of make-believe and play-acting. This passion for acting stayed on in his mind.
The Struggle 46
They say in the Hindi film industry that a newcomer whose first film is a flop is definitely going to make it big. The bigger the flops, the greater the success. Bachchan must have definitely stretched the rule to the limit.
The Angry Young Man 74
Bachchan's role in Zanjeer marked the watershed point in his career. The film made Amitabh Bachchan an icon of the masses. The Angry Young Man phase captured and held the imagination of the country.
A Search For Identity 102
After a successful reign of nearly twenty years at the Hindi movie box-office, Bachchan was longing for something else. Introspection followed, interspersed with some serious globetrotting.
The Return Of The King 140
It was in 1999 that Bachchan met up with a man who had an unusual but exciting offer. He wanted Bachchan to host a game show on his TV channel.
Still Here 174
Facing the darkness, and living through trying times has endowed Bachchan with a newfound confidence. The kind that blossoms from within.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
