As Amitabh Bachchan completed 50 glorious years in cinema, Amul gave the superstar a unique tribute with an adorable doodle. The doodle, which is captioned 'Tab bhi B, Ab bhi B' refers to the megastar`s long stint in the film industry and shows caricatures of the actor both during his early days and his present form.  

Proud son, actor Abhishek Bachchan too shared the doodle on his Twitter handle.

Earlier last week, Abhishek had taken to his Instagram account to share a photo of himself with a heartfelt message for his father on completing 50 years in the industry.

In the photo, where Abhishek can be seen in a quirky grey sweatshirt which has Big B’s image and the word “icon” printed on it, the actor reminded everyone of the hard work and dedication Big B has put in the last 50 years and how he is still devoted to his work despite being in his 70s.“ICON! To me, he`s so much more. My father, best friend, guide, best critic, greatest support, idol..... HERO! 50 years today he started his journey in films. Even today, his passion and love for his craft and work is the same as I`m sure it was on the first day. Dearest Pa, today we celebrate you, your talent, your passion, your brilliance and your immense influence. Can`t wait to see what you have in store for the next 50 years,” he wrote alongside the picture.

Big B made his debut in 'Saat Hindustani' back in 1969 and has been part of blockbuster, iconic films like 'Sholay', 'Deewar', 'Abhimaan' and 'Amar Akbar Anthony.'
