Artificial intelligence has seeped into domains of industry and technological circles on a major scale. It is the catchphrase of revolutionary growth; the beacon of heft in various fields, including education and medicine; the lodestar of acceptability in social media. Bollywood's megastar, Amitabh Bachchan, too has cottoned on to the AI bandwagon: to mark his 'wondrous' 55 years in Hindi cinema, he has given his image an artificial intelligence makeover, posting several versions on his Instagram platform.

It was in 1969, when the cine icon stepped into the world of showbiz with 'Saat Hindustani' and since then he has captivated the audience with his impeccable performances on screen. Amitabh took to X (formerly Twitter), where he dropped two AI images of himself.

The first picture has a camera lens in place of his spectacle lens. The second photo has a colourful camera reel like streamers with faces and eyes made on it.

"T 4924 – 55 years in the wondrous world of Cinema... and AI, gives me its interpretation... a presentation by Ef B... self made,” Big B wrote on Twitter.

Even though he started his acting career with ‘Saat Hindustani, Big B had first began his journey as a voice narrator in ‘Bhuvan Shome’ starring Utpal Dutt in 1969 by Mrinal Sen, according to Indo-Asian News Service.

The octogenarian in the 1970s gained the spotlight with films such as 'Anand', 'Zanjeer', 'Roti Kapada Aur Makaan', 'Deewaar' and 'Sholay'. He was even given the tag of the "angry young man”.

Then in the 80s, he attained more stardom with his work in films such as 'Amar Akbar Anthony', 'Don', 'Namak Halaal', 'Coolie', 'Sharaabi Abhimaan', 'Majboor', 'Mili', 'Chupke Chupke', 'Kabhi Kabhie', 'Silsila', 'Shahenshah' and 'Agneepath'.

In the 2000s, he was seen in blockbusters such as ‘Baghban’, ‘Mohabbatein’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…’, ‘Sarkar’, ‘Pink’ and Piku’.

The star has even worked in Hollywood film ‘The Great Gatsby’ in 2013.

Amitabh is now gearing up for the release of the sci-fi thriller ‘Kalki 2898 AD’, which also has Kamal Haasan, Prabhas and Deepika Padukone.
