New Delhi. There is a saying that time is not always the same. Amitabh Bachchan, who was in limelight after giving hit films one after the other, went through a difficult time. That decade of 1990 will hardly be forgotten by the Bachchan family. The company went bankrupt, the creditors stood at the door and the debt of Rs 90 crore forced it to such an extent that it even came to the point of losing its house. But the wheel of time turned again and they worked hard and returned each and every pie.
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan went bankrupt in the 90s. Why did such a situation happen to him? Why did the people who spoke well with him till yesterday suddenly change their attitude? How did he get a loan of 90 crores? What were the 55 cases pending against him? All these things were answered by the great hero himself.

He said, when you sign a personal guarantee, you are personally liable to pay it and hence I became indebted to the tune of about Rs 90 crore.

Amitabh Bachchan further said, ‘Those who were excited to join my company till yesterday, suddenly changed. His attitude had become hostile. He had become very rude and abusive. Overall, this matter had become very bad. Moneylenders used to come to the door, hurling abuses and demanding their money back with threats.
