Amitabh Bachchan says child actors keep him on his toes
The Shahenshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, spoke about working as the paranormal avatar in ‘Bhootnath Returns’, which releases in cinemas worldwide on 11th April 2014.
Talking fondly about working closely with child actor Parth Bhalerao in the film, he said: "I believe the younger generation has a much brighter future than we had.
“Look at them… their confidence, they rarely have inhibitions while acting or in general in front of the camera. That’s something which keeps us older actors on our toes! The younger lot impresses me with their sharp skills and how confidence comes naturally to them.”
The film's message, he Resonates with the current situation in India and urges everyone to go and vote. We should all be a part of the system and participate actively. The fearlessness and simplicity of the child protagonist should inspire and motivate us."
Speaking about the genre of children-centric films in Indian cinema, he explained, “Although children's films have been in the past too, I still feel that there is a serious dearth of films which are made for children or have a child artist as one of the main protagonists.”
Mr Bachchan is well-known to have taken to social media like a fish to water. Commenting he said: "I think social media has immense and underestimated potential.
“Twitter and Facebook have given me an Extended Family (EF) as I call it. It connects not only me to the rest of the world but also people connect and form bonds with each other.
“I have numerous stories where they have bonded and met each other. I think it is a wonderful concept!"
