Amitabh Bachchan may be most famous as the iconic 'angry young man', but the superstar has a softer side to his persona.
Many a time, Amitabh has regaled audiences and tugged at their heartstrings by performing alongside kids, and there are several memorable scenes involving him and child artistes.
With the release of his latest film, Ek Ajnabee, here's a look at some films that pitted the Big B with litte actors:
Suryaveer Singh (Amitabh Bachchan), a retired Black Cat commando, plays bodyguard to an eight-year-old girl Anamika (Baby Rucha Vaidya).
Suryaveer is not good with children, but starts liking Anamika after their initial disagreements. When Anamika is kidnapped, the only man who can bring her back is Suryaveer.
Amitabh says Rucha is a natural actress and needs no training. For the movie, Rucha had to learn swimming. And, after she learnt it, it was difficult to get her out of the pool!
