Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has already put in 45 years in cinema but is still hungry for fresh challenges to essay roles he has not done before.
“I would love to do roles that I have not done. I will accept this as a challenge,” Bachchan said at the pre-release press conference in Kolkata on Saturday for his upcoming film “Wazir”.
Bachchan, clad in a light brown jacket and black trousers, said he had worked with actors of his time like Shashi Kapoor, Dharmendra and Vinod Khanna among others.
“But working with new generation actors and directors is definitely a learning experience and which I love to do,” he said.
“I consider myself fortunate to act with young actors and acting with them makes me learn a lot. I am fortunate to get work and hope to get them. The industry has tolerated me a lot,” he said.
The younger generation has a different way of thinking with a different viewpoint, Bachchan said.
“Wazir”, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and directed by Bijoy Nambiar, has a cast comprising Big B, Farhan Akhtar, Aditi Rao Hydari and Neil Nitin Mukesh.
