    The meaning of the name Amitabh is 'Brilliance Unlimited'. His nickname at home was Munna.
    His father Harivansh Rai Bachchan was a poet who is still remembered for his remarkable work in poetry (he died in 2003) and his mother Teji Bachchan was a housewife who always kept herself away from the limelight (she died in 2007). His mother always wanted him to be a performer.
