After completing studies, he started working with Shaw Wallace. He later started working as a freight broker for the shipping firm Bird and Co.

In 1969, he made his first break as an actor in the Bollywood film Saat Hindustani in which he played the role of Anwar Ali.

In 1984, he joined the politics to support his friend Rajiv Gandhi. He contested for the Allahabad seat against Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna in the eighth Lok Sabha elections. He got the seat with the highest victory margin in the history of the general election, that is, 68.2% of the vote. He resigned after three years in politics and calling politics a cesspool.

He took a temporary break from his acting career to set up his own company Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd. (ABCL) with the purpose to introduce services and products that covers a whole cross-section of the entertainment industry of India. The company started in 1996 and produced several films but none of which did well.

In 1997, he made his comeback as an actor with the Bollywood film Mrityudata that was produced by ABCL, but the film was failed both critically and financially. ABCL was the main sponsor of the 1996 Miss World beauty pageant in Bangalore, but the company lost millions. Later, ABCL went into administration and was declared a failed company by the Indian Industries board. During that time, Indian politician Amar Singh helped him financially and later Amitabh started supporting him and his party Samajwadi Party.

He hosted the popular Indian TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9. He also hosted the famous reality show Bigg Boss Season 3 (2009) and Indian entertainment talk show Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi (2015-2016). Apart from that, he acted in some TV shows like Yudh (2014) as Yudhisthir Sikarwar and Astra Force (2016-2017) as Astra (Voice Role).
