Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who was given the title of "Angry Young Man" after working in films like Zanjeer and Namak Haraam, said it was not him but veteran actor Sunil Dutt who hols this title.
Sunil Dutt played an angry Birju in Mother India.
"Namak Haram bore seeds of the anger that was next seen in Zanjeer, and the subsequent titling of the epithet 'Angry Young Man' by the media," Amitabh Bachchan, who is shooting for Satyagraha in Bhopal wrote on Facebook.
"But I have always believed that the first powerful depiction or in a sense the birth of the so called 'Angry Young Man', was designed by Mehboob Saheb (Mehboob Khan) in Mother India, where the character Birju, played so brilliantly by Sunil Dutt, was depicted," Big B further wrote.
Big B played young police inspector Vijay in Zanjeer, which made him a star overnight.
