Age seems to have made the man more dedicated towards his job as Amitabh Bachchan continued to churn out brilliant performance even as the living legend of Indian silver screen turned 69 on Tuesday.

There may be a few more wrinkles on his face and his health does disobey him often, but his dedication and power to give justice to his characters make him the Big B of Bollywood.

"It is past midnight! It is my birthday today! It is another year gone by! It is stepping in to the 70th year for me! Thank you!" he tweeted to his fans.

"They ask me what I wish for my birthday...why only on the birthday, it should be everyday...I wish another day to pass in peace," he remarked.

Big B is known for his passion towards his work and this is reflected in his tweet, "One of the best ways to bring in birthdays is to be working at what you need to be working on... I work because I need to... love!!"

In his long career Bachchan has mesmerised his fans in numerous avatars that ranged from a love-torn hero in SILSILA to an angry young man in ZANJEER or DEEWAR. His charismatic performance was seen in the films that he did in his later years that include names like CHEENI KUM or NISHABD.
