From Zero to Hero – Amitabh Bachchan

In 1995 Amitabh started Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd(ABCL) that specialized in film production and event management. ABCL has does everything in entertainment business eg:- Making films, distribution of films, Selling music rights, managing big events, television production, as also in the area of selling commercial time on television.

The first year the company did achieve its target turnover of Rs 65 crore and made a profit of 15 crores. But that growth was not substantiated in the second year onwards. ABCL biggest mistake was to organize pagent of Miss World Bangalore. This event has loaded biggest liablity on ABCL. In 1999 ABCL was facing liquidity crunch. Many movies got flopped. Huge funds were blocked in production and distribution of films. Company was not able to pay even salaries of staff.

Main Creditor Canara Bank and India’s public broadcaster Doordarshan had made case against ABCL in Bombay High Court. Bombay High Court has given decision against ABCL and directed Bachchan to sell his bungalow ‘Prateeksha‘ and two flats to clear all debt.

Bachchan, had mortgaged his bungalow to Sahara India Finance for raising funds for his company. The Indian Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction declared Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited a ‘sick’ company with a debt of US$14m.

With these raise fund also he could not clear all debt. His friend Subrata Roy of the Sahara group and Samajwadi Party general-secretary Amar Singh helped him a lot during this time. His first break in this bad time was Mohabattein movie of Yash Chopra.

Big B was back in action by 2000, this time on the small screen with Kaun Banega Crorepati a popular television show known as KBC also. This show was big success and it has revived his fortunes along with participants and STAR Plus channel. It is estimated that Bachchan earned Rs 15 crore for 85 episodes of the show. Brand endorsement like the ICICI Bank etc helped him to get big money and he could pay back creditors and clean up ABCL’s balance sheet.

Imagine starting your life from zero worth at the age of retirement! At seventy plus Amitabh Bachchan career graph is touching sky like rocket.

Don’t Trust People Blindly

Amitabh lost all the wealth that he had built because, he was good at earning and creating wealth, but trusted others and did not have the ability to protect the wealth he had earned. But, like many of his reel roles, in real life, too, he fought and is now a bigger role model across generations.

Similar to this we focus all our time and energies on building wealth. However, when it comes to investment we invest our money based on advice given by agent, broker, financial advisor or friend. I have seen many people trust people blindly when it comes for the investment of money.

Remember that you need to be careful when it comes to investment or protection of wealth.

Accept Failure but Never Give up

Every human being will go through a phase when there are highs and lows. Everything that goes up also comes down. But best thing is ability to accept failure and turn that in to success.

According me Amitabh bachchan is real example of Phoenix by rising from the ashes. Amitabh is also proves famous success quote that “Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.”

Imagine the man who lost everything at the age of retirement accept his failure, start from zero and make 2950 Cr.

 Diversify Your portfolio

If you carefully see Amitabh Bachchan Current portfolio you will find that his investment/saving is in mostly all asset class starting from debt, equity, real estate, gold and antiques.

If you are not master of investment then it is better to invest your money in multiple asset class. In this way down fall in one asset class don’t impact your portfolio much.

Apart from this Amitabh Bachchan is one of the few stars that take their iconic status seriously.

His interactions with his fans and the press are generally warm and gracious, and he makes a visible effort to remain humble and grounded.

Amitabh attitude inspires each and every one to reflect upon the various aspects with sheer admiration and reverence; how he gently and thoughtfully handles each and every aspect of his career and life with versatile brilliance.

At the age of 79 also he is ever inspiring superstar. He is a legend who always inspires us to take meaningful steps in our individual fields and excel with the wonderful resources that we have been provided.

I hope as a fan of super star Amitji you will appreciate this financial learning from his life.

 Amitji, You have meticulously utilized each and every instance, transforming mere aspects into potential opportunities of intrinsic value; investing tremendous time and effort at each and every stage; striving diligently at each and every step very most consciously and with profound awareness; a disciplined attitude and an ambitious perspective thereby inspiring us to look within ourselves likewise and accomplish meaningful; purposeful; respectful and responsible goals and objectives for Universal Development; Happiness and Welfare always.
