He finished his studies in Uttar Pradesh and came to Bombay to pursue a career as cinema star, but his efforts were in vain since the film producer wanted someone with fairer complexion, and he was not sufficiently fair enough. He was successfully casted in Saat Hindustani and made his debut from there. Thanks to a letter of introduction from Mrs. Indira Gandhi, the then Prime-Minister, as Amitabh was a friend of her son, Rajiv Gandhi, that he was introduced into the film industry. This is how Amitabh started his career in Bollywood, with Zanjeer, in which he co-starred with his future wife Jaya Bhaduri, and there has been no turning back since.
