Amitabh: The Making of a Superstar (2007)
Author: Susmita Dasgupta; Publisher: Penguin Global
An interesting, zany cover takes us inside to show an equally arresting analysis.
It's interesting to note that the author pursued a Ph.D on Amitabh Bachchan - 'Sociology of Hindi Commercial Cinema: A Study of Amitabh Bachchan' before writing the book.
In the book, Dasgupta divides Bachchan's career into four neat parts from the '70s to the current one where he stole the hearts of the audience through his television debut.
Indeed, the Amitabh on the cover - where he is multiplied multi-fold and running aggressively - personifies the resilience of the actor that is often referred to in the book.
