Megastar Amitabh Bachchan highly impressed by new generation of actors
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says 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. 75-year-old Bachchan said while he is still trying to finetune his craft, young actors come prepared on sets. Here's more.
"The new generation of actors like Alia, Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, they are such capable actors, you get scared while working with them, kha hee jayenge (they'll eat me up)," Bachchan said. "We took years and are still trying to finetune our craft but these people, they come the first day on the set and know exactly what they are doing," Bachchan said.
"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," Big B said.
"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," Bachchan said. Bachchan was speaking at the launch of Season-10 of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. The popular game show will start airing on Sony from September 3..
