No one can beat the "Shehanshah" when it comes to fun and frolic chat. The onlookers mostly enjoy moments of laughter in his Press Conferences. Can anyone ever get upset with Mr. Bachchan is the million dollar question?
Well! AB in a pun intended manner which he usually does, “Are you upset with this? Quizzed Amitji
What is the tale behind this word,”upset” one needs to go ahead and read the whole story -
During the first look launch of the most awaited film, “TE3N” starring Amitabh Bachchan and Vidya Balan, a media personal asked Big B - In the past he was seen playing second fiddle to the main lead in his movies, however, now he is seen playing lead roles that are central to the film’s script. Whether it was Wazir, Piku or the upcoming TE3N and Pink, Big B plays the lead in all of these. So in a joking manner, he asked him if writers/Directors/ were doing this willingly or has he been asking them to pen roles as the lead for him?
Even before he could reply, the enthused Vidya excusing herself said, "If I were to write, I would sensibly and literally write a script every day for Amitabh Bachchan.”
No sooner did senior Bachchan have the mike he instantly in a fun manner, asked the media person, "Are you upset with this?"
Further adding humbly, Amitabh Bachchan said, “I am really grateful to the writers who thought of me to be in the character of the centre stage. I consider myself to be really very blessed to have gotten such roles. There is a certain format for the leading man in the Hindi films to be played. I did play the lead roles during my earlier days and to be in the centre stage even now, I really consider myself very fortunate.”
Very modestly he further added something from his heart, “I hope many more come forward and write many more such leading roles for me. Ribhu is writing one for me.”
