Bollywood's most enduring superstar slid to his lowest rank in five years, thanks to a mixed box office performance and limited television presence. Two of Bachchan's releases Te3n and Wazir could not create the expected buzz at the box office, but Pink—highlighting women's rights and dignity—was a hit. A television show Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi on Star Plus performed averagely in terms of viewership.
Fast Fact: Bachchan wore an elevation training mask for the first time while shooting for Pink in Delhi. The mask improves oxygen intake and increases overall lung capacity.
