Amitabh Bachchan just tweeted this throwback photo that he had sent for the Filmfare-Madhuri contest – a talent hunt for aspiring actors in the 1960s – which he ended up being rejected for.
He also uploaded the same photo on Facebook and added, "It's not surprising that they rejected me after seeing this photo. It doesn't look like this lanky palm tree can become an actor from any angle. Hahahaha!"
Of course, looking at the next few decades of his career, it's safe to say that Filmfare took the wrong call.
