Mumbai, Dec 7 (IANS) He hails from the small town of Allahabad, but has made it big like no other. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, known worldwide for his acting prowess, believes it always helps to stay close to one's roots.

The 70-year-old feels it is important that everyone remembers the beginning of their career as it helps them to face tough times.

"Many beginnings of our lives are easily forgotten when there has been extreme progress ... in our condition. I believe being in honest touch with your start up days, it's circumstances and conditions keeps one grounded with reality," Big B wrote on his blog.

Amitabh has given the film industry blockbusters like "Deewaar", "Don", "Sholay", "Coolie", "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham..." and "Black".

However, the actor says he went through a lot of struggle during his over four decade-old Bollywood career. He feels the lessons learnt from bad experiences always help in life.

"The humble days of yore, of hardships and how they were overcome, tests and trials, embarrassing rejections all go to play an important role in the days to come or the present times. It is good to remember every now and then where we began from," he added.
