Sample answer 2
We all have our favorite personalities whom we respect and love from the bottom of our heart. Some of them are our friends, others are family members. Sometimes we also like celebrities or successful persons.
Interestingly, I have a list of my favorite personalities from different arenas whom I follow on social networking platforms and I admire them for their skills, contributions, philanthropic activities or struggle to get success stories.
One such famous person whom I greatly admire is Amitabh Bachchan, one of my favorite celebrities whom I have been following since my early childhood and I scarcely miss any single movie of him.
I have much admiration for him for myriad reasons.
Firstly, for his extraordinary talent and polite attitude towards every person. He is an inspiration of today’s Bollywood actors and this thing makes him greatest of all time.
Secondly his tenacious dedication. When I had read about his earlier life then I came to know that how much vigorous hard work he did to obtain this stage.
He became famous by the movie named Saat Hindustani (Seven Indians) which was his first film in which he did the great acting and from that he paved his life towards the success.
Day by day his name became very common on every mouth. But unfortunately, his star power started declining because of some flop movies. This gave him a life lesson that was his mistake when he took everything as granted. But then he made his life stable and got the popularity back in very short time and that’s why I like his style too much.
He is famous among the people because of his heart touching acting which impressed the Indians as well as so many foreign actors and this quality attracts the people towards him.
Lastly, his encouraging nature because he tries to keep every person with him and never try to show others they are not below the level so he never promotes discrimination and that’s why he is one of the most favorite person in my country.
I have never seen a person with such type of qualities and this makes me fond of him and I have great desire to meet him ones in my life and would like to tell him that I am biggest fan of him and I have been dreaming to meet him.
