I lack observation: Amitabh Bachchan
New Delhi: Everything about Amitabh Bachchan may seem likeable to his multitude of fans. But the megastar says he "hates everything" about himself, and hopes that he can be a better observer.
At the behest of one of his fans, IANS asked Big B about the one thing he hates about himself.
He was quick to respond: "I hate everything about me (myself)!"
"There are so many things that are not correct (about me) and an effort is made to correct it," said the 71-year-old, who is an institution in himself to aspiring actors and performers.
Even after nearly five decades of entertaining audiences via films, he says that even now when he faces the camera, there's a whole lot to learn.
"Everyday that we go in front of the camera is a learning day. We learn new things, we meet new people, listen to them, watch them," said the star, who defies age by grooving and singing in his films still.
He says observation can be an actor's biggest strength, and he feels he lacks it -- even though his intricately descriptive pieces of writing on his blog speak another story.
"As actors, we tend to notice everything around us - while meeting people, somewhere something keeps getting recorded... and then when there's a scene sometime later, it (a reaction or expression) comes out.
"I have had no formal training (in acting), and so observation is what I can rely on. I feel it is a very important aspect (of being an actor). I lack observation," he said.
Well, if you, Big B, lack observation, what do we say?
He smiled, sighed and said: "Aaah... we will never know. As a creative person, we should never be satisfied. Every day is a new learning graph - the day the 'I know everything' feeling sets in, it is the death of an artist."
No wonder then that even at his age, he is ready to take on new challenges head on!
