Amitabh Bachchan has been ruling the film industry for decades. He is the undisputed Shahenshah of Bollywood.

Apart from professional highs, Amitabh enjoys a luxurious lifestyle earned with hard work. He has several properties in Mumbai, including Jalsa, Pratiksha, and Janak.

For every person, their first home remains special, as is the case with Amitabh Bachchan. It was in 2020, when the superstar opened up about his first home with a blog post. He shared that in 1976, he had moved into his first home, and his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, named it instantly — Pratiksha. It was inspired by one of his lines, 'Swagat sabke liye yaha par, nahi kisi ke liye prateeksha.'

Amitabh Bachchan recalled how his children, Shweta Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan grew up playing around the Gulmohar tree, which was planted as a sapling in the lawn of their first home. Later, they got married at the same place, and their children, Aaradhya Bachchan, Navya Nanda and Agastya Nanda played around it.  

On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan has been winning hearts with his stint as the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati 15!
