  • She was surprised to know that Big B was nominated as the star of the millennium.

Famous Bollywood actress Parveen Babi was one of the most beautiful, stylish, and glamorous actresses of the 70s and 80s who worked on big projects with leading superstars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra and many others. She died a tragic death after being diagnosed with Schizophrenia. But during her heydays, Parveen Babi was known as a brilliant star who was well-read, vivacious, and intelligent.

During one of her interviews on Shekhar Suman's show, the Shaan actress made some interesting comments on Amitabh Bachchan with whom she has worked in many movies including Namak Halaal, Suhag, Deewar, Kala Patthar, Majboor, Kaaliya, and so many others. Parveen Babi said that she was shocked to know that Amitabh Bachchan was voted the star of the millennium ahead of big stars like Marlon Brando and Elvis Presley.

When the host Shekhar Suman asked her to tell about the biggest joke she had heard, the Bollywood star said, "I thought the biggest joke of the millennium was Amitabh Bachchan being nominated the star of the millennium superseding Mr. Marlon Brando, Mr. Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson. I mean everybody, everyone you name them. "

When the Heeramandi actor interrupted Parveenji saying, "Unke liya bakayda longo ne vote kiya tha" the actress said, " Even bigger joke is when Mr. Amitabh Bachchan was nominated the 10th most handsome man of the Indian century. Now with all due respect, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan has always been known for his acting and not for his appearance."

Many people will agree to the fact that Big B was more known for his acting as an angry young man than for his physical appearance. But even then for Senior Bachchan fans, it was a moment of rejoicing when the Shahenshah of Bollywood was declared the star of the millennium because his fans had voted for him.
