Indian cinema@100: 9 facts about the Angry Young Man
Amitabh Bachchan as Inspector Vijay in Zanjeer.
As the Angry Young Man, Amitabh Bachchan created several immortal celluloid moments on-screen. He excelled in playing angst-ridden, wronged, looking-for-revenge characters, often named Vijay.

Some facts about the films and roles that showcased the Angry Young Man:

Amitabh Bachchan was the fifth choice for Zanjeer's Inspector Vijay, film that marked the rise of the Angry Young Man. Dev Anand turned down the film after he was told he couldn't sing playback for himself like he wanted. Raaj Kumar refused the role because he disliked the smell of director Prakash Mehra's brand of hair oil. Dharmendra had no dates free. Rajesh Khanna didn't want to mess with his romantic hero image. Prakash Mehra was at his wit's end when Pran, who was cast as Sher Khan, suggested he watch Amitabh Bachchan in Bombay To Goa. In the fight sequence, Mr Mehra knew he had found his Vijay.

Deewar's Vijay Verma is said to be modeled on real-life gangster Haji Mastan, who began life as a coolie in the docks just like Vijay.

There were no dialogues written for Vijay Verma's death scene in Deewar. Director Yash Chopra gave Amitabh Bachchan carte blanche to ad lib.

Waheeda Rehman had almost been cast as Vijay Verma's mother and she was also playing Amitabh Bachchan's wife in . Yash Chopra decided against casting her in Deewar as he was unsure how the public would take to her playing Amitabh Bachchan's mother as well as his wife.

Amitabh Bachchan shot Sholay and Deewar simultaneously - Sholay in the morning, Deewar at night.

With Shakti, director Ramesh Sippy had no qualms about casting Rakhee as Vijay Kumar's

mother even though she was playing his love interest in Bemisaal the same year. The rivalry between Kaala Patthar's Vijay Pal Singh and Mangal Singh was mirrored off-screen between Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha, who had once been fast friends. Amitabh Bachchan was reportedly against Shatrughan Sinha being cast in the movie.

Kaalia was beset by financial trouble. Dharmendra, the first choice for the role, had no dates. Amitabh Bachchan was cast, leading to Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar, who were producing the movie, to quit because they had wanted Vinod Khanna. Finally, Dharmendra's secretary Iqbal Singh produced the film and it was shot on a budget and a tight schedule. The famous song Jahan Teri Ye Nazar Hai had to be shot on the sets of Namak Halaal, also starring Amitabh Bachchan.

Agneepath's Vijay Deenanath Chauhan is portrayed as younger than many of the other characters in the film, including Danny Denzongpa's Kancha Cheena and Tinnu Anand's Nathu Kaka. In real life, the actors were much the same age or younger than Amitabh Bachchan. Tinnu Anand went bald for the film to look older than the hero. Even Rohini Hattangadi, who played Vijay's mother, was younger than her screen son.

He was always quite chalaak. I wouldn't be surprised if he supported Dharminers alcoholism because he was always better looking and a better actor plus was way more popular before he ruined himself.

hehehe, Guys chill out.

The 10th fact is - He is also quite popular and famous as Angry Young man, because he got very very angry at Indira Gandhi's assasination, and gave the slogan appearing time and again on Doordarshan - "KHOON KA BADLA KHOON, Is KHOON KE CHINTEY EN SIKHON KE GHAR TAK PAHUNCHA DO".
