Describe a famous person whom you admire.
You should say:

  • what makes him/her famous

and explain why you admire him/her.


I think we all look for certain qualities in a person we admire or follow. I have always been a huge admirer of Amitabh Bachchan. He is a Bollywood superstar and globally recognized cinema thespian. Being one of the senior most celebrity of actor, he is 76 years of age but his energetic performance does not reflect the age.

Amitabh Bachchan’s tremendous universal appeal and influencing personality makes him top the list of World’s Most Admired People. His qualities and down to earth nature are the reasons why people regard him as one of the greatest actor any film industry has ever produced. When I read an article on his biography, I came to know about the struggles he has gone through during the early days when he encountered rejection and flopped movies. Even after being a global personality, Mr. Bachchan is well known for his punctuality and giving his 100% in all tasks. Age is just a number for him as with increasing age, he’s getting even better with his performance on screen.

Mumbai is the film capital of our country and Amitabh Bachchan belonging to India lives there.He lives there in a mansion where fans religiously stand outside on weekends just to get a glimpse of the legend.

I admire Mr. Bachchan not only because he’s a great actor, but for his contribution to society as well. He is a social activist. His donations to various non-profit organizations and reliefs funds are also worth a praise. Mr. Bachchan has also been honored with popular Indian awards, which makes me admire and respect him even more.
