Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who earned the tag of "Angry Young Man" after his films "Zanjeer" and "Namak Haram", believes the first actor to hold the title is not him but Sunil Dutt who portrayed an angry Birju in the 1957-epic "Mother India".
"But I have always believed that the first powerful depiction or in a sense the birth of the so called 'Angry Young Man', was designed by Mehboob Saheb (Mehboob Khan) in 'Mother India', where the character Birju, played so brilliantly by Sunil Dutt, was depicted," he wrote.
While "Zanjeer" featured Amitabh as inspector Vijay Khanna, "Namak Haraam" saw him as Vikram Maharaj.
