Mumbai, Oct 10 (IANS) He was 15 when he came to Mumbai and like many others fell by the wayside of Bollywood's dream factory. It's been many years since but stardust still clouds Avinash Kumar's vision, his Bollywood ideal still intact and cynicism kept at bay thanks mainly to his "god" Amitabh Bachchan who turns 66 Saturday.
From wannabe star to a small time businessman who runs an Amitabh Bachchan fan club, Avinash says his idol's movies are his biggest source of inspiration.
"Amitabh is like god to us who shows us our path. It is through his films that we get our energy to do our work and live our life which is full of struggle," Avinash told IANS.
