Amitabh Bachchan Says He is Scared to Work With Actors Like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, and Anushka Sharma

Wait, what?


The indisputable star of social media amongst all the veteran actors, Amitabh Bachchan, is without a doubt the most adored senior actor in Bollywood. Be it Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, Mr.B seems to be making things interesting by posting rare throwbacks, fan interactions, and epic replies.

Remember the time when he posted a tweet responding to a newspaper headline that said Shahid Kapoor and Aamir Khan are too short to work with tall actors like Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif, and he took the opportunity to apply for the job stating there would be no height problems if the two actresses work with him instead?

Recently, he was present at the press conference of Kaun Banega Crorepati, where the actor was asked about his view on the leading ladies of Bollywood, to which he replied that he was scared of them, following it up with praises for the current generation of actors in Bollywood.  

"From the younger lot, Alia, Anushka, and Deepika—all of them are such powerful actors that I am scared to work with them. Kha hi jaayege humko (sic). We took years and years and years and years and we are still trying to fine tune our craft, these people they come on the first day on the set and they know exactly what they are doing. They are so confident and so mature! Look at what Ranbir is doing and Sushant, Varun, and Rajkummar Rao. Recently there was this film Sonu ki Titubada ajeeb sa naam hai (it's a weird name)—usmein Aaryan was so good. The film had such a good story. I get so obsessed and I keep writing to them saying well done."

While we ALL know how Mr. B is just being modest here, we did love his chemistry with Deepika Padukone in Piku, and can't wait to see it opposite Alia Bhatt in Brahmastra—the next big release in Bollywood that has everyone hooked.
