Amitabh Bachchan : Biography
Amitabh Bachchan Amitabh Bachchan, born October 11, 1942, (also known as BIG B), is a very popular Indian film actor who appears in Bollywood movies. His acting career began in 1969 and has spanned four decades. He has legions of devoted fans, a resume featuring dozens of hit movies, and is considered one of the top actors in India. Bachchan was also a member of Indian Parliament (MP), being elected in 1984 from Allahabad. He resigned from this post after serving three years.
Bachchan was born in the city of Allahabad, India. His father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, was a well-known poet of Urdu and Hindi. The original last name of the family is “Srivastava”; “Bachchan” was in fact a pen name used by his father. However, when Bachchan entered films he did so under his father’s pen name. Now he is never known as anything but Amitabh Bachchan. His immediate family has also adopted the Bachchan surname. His mother is Teji Bachchan, who is a Sikh born in Punjab, India. Bachchan attended Allahabad’s Boys’ High School, followed by Nainital’s Sherwood College, where he gained a degree in art. He later went on to study at Kirori Mal College in Delhi University earning a degree in science. When he was in his twenties, Bachchan gave up a job as freight broker for the shipping firm, Bird and Co., based in Kolkata, to pursue a career in acting.He is married to actress Jaya Bhaduri (now Bachchan). The couple have two children: daughter Shweta and son Abhishek. Abhishek Bachchan has also entered the Bollywood film industry. Bachchan is said to have met Jaya Bhaduri at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) at Pune though there is no evidence to confirm that he was ever enrolled there as a student.
In 1984, Bachchan briefly entered politics in support of long-time family friend Rajiv Gandhi. He contested Allahabad’s Parliament seat against H. N. Bahuguna, a well-known politician, and won by a large margin (68.2% of the vote). His political career, however, was short-lived: he resigned after only three years, not finishing his term. At the time of his resignation, it was rumoured that he might have been involved in the Bofors Scandal. Bachchan was not implicated in the case, and has since distanced himself from the Gandhi family. He denies that the two events were connected, commenting that he “should have never got into politics”.

Iraq bomb blasts kill at Least 38

Police in Iraq say that a pair of powerful explosions have rocked central Baghdad, killing 38 people and injuring at least 45 others.
The blasts went off near the Ministry of Justice and the offices of a Kurdish political party during the morning rush hour as people headed to work.
Qassim Atta, spokesman for the Baghdad Security Service, said the explosions were caused by car bombs aimed at government institutions.
“They are targeting the government and the political process in the country,” he said.
An employee at the Baghdad Governorate said that after the first blast, dozens of employees began fleeing the building as walls collapsed.
Black smoke could be seen billowing from the area where the blasts occurred, and emergency service vehicles sped to the scene.
