Did you guys know AB is ambidextrous(can write with both hands)?? And that his real last name is Shrivastav.

Where did the Bachchan family derive its name? Bachchan is father's nom de plume...actually we're Srivastavas. His pen name became the family name. I'm the first bearer of the name. It seems father's maa used to call him bacha and he made that name into Bachchan. So there's only one Bachchan family. As far as I know, no one else uses this name except for a Hindi journalist of Delhi.
