Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is not just a legendary actor but he is an inspiration for masses.
At the launch of his most popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 10, Big B was asked about Indian cinema’s leading ladies and his experience of working with him, Bachchan said: “He is in awe of the current generation of actors like Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao who have honed their craft to such a level that even he gets scared while working with them.
Bachchan said while he is still trying to fine-tune his craft, young actors come prepared on sets.
“The new generation of actors like Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, they are such capable actors, you get scared while working with them, kha hee jayenge. They are so brilliant.
“We took years and years and are still trying to fine-tune our craft but these people, they come first day on the set and know exactly what they are doing. They are so confident, mature,” Bachchan told reporters.
The 75-year-old actor said he considers himself fortunate to have worked with two generations of actors.
“Look at Sushant Singh Rajput, Varun Dhawan, Rajkummar Rao and Kartik Aaryan. I get so obsessed that I write to them and send flowers when I watch their performance.
“I am fortunate that I’ve been able to live through the period where I saw Meena Kumari ji, Nutan ji, Waheeda Rehman ji and now I’m getting an opportunity to work with actors like Alia and Ranbir (his ‘Brahmastra’ co-stars)… It’s just unbelievable,” he added.
