Coming to how Amitabh got his name Inquilaab, the actor revealed that during the Quit India movement (1942), his mother Teji Bachchan, who was eight-month pregnant, participated in the rallies. The family members were worried as they were unable to find her at the house and searched her at the rally. When they brought her back home, one of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s friends joked about Teji’s patriotism and said that the baby should be named inquilaab.
Amitabh further added that his father’s close friend Sumitra Nandan Pant, who visited the family on the same day Big B was born, suggested the name Amitabh.
