Becoming Bachchan | 101 Movietown

The lookalike who became the hero of his own story.

Firoz's life changed when he walked into a movie theatre and watched Amitabh Bachchan's iconic hit 'Deewar'. Stepping out of the theatre, he knew he wanted to be just like him. His love for Amitabh Bachchan, and uncanny imitation of the legendary actor brought him all the way from Uttar Pradesh to Mumbai, where he bagged the role of a very convincing Amitabh Bachchan lookalike for several years.

After performing for TV, stage shows and parodies, Firoz is now an actor in his own right, having secured roles on national TV and in movies. He is now living the dream that he saw so many years ago, as Amitabh Bachchan's biggest fan.
