Veteran Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has given several iconic performances. One of his well-known performances is his role in Shahenshah. The actor had a sort of comeback in the 1988 movie, in which he portrayed both a police officer and a vigilante who hunts down criminals. His portrayal of the grizzled vigilante with a black jacket and steel sleeves became a runaway hit.

Shahenshah was released on February 12 in 1988. The movie transformed Amitabh Bachchan's credibility as an actor because it came out in theatres when he wasn't enjoying a good run of films.
He said on the film's 30th anniversary on Twitter, “30 years of 'Shahenshah'…amazing times…came at the time when there was little hope of its release… because of attacks on my credibility… but the people of the nation knew better…had a bumper opening and success! Thank you.”
