Big B said that while shooting for a campaign he found himself tongue-tied when the child compared him with his grandparents who are ‘sitting at home and chilling’. Big B narrated the whole incident in a recent blog post and many on social media are reacting to it.
Big B’s encounter with 5-year-old kid
Amitabh Bachchan wrote in his blog, “I was at work for the RBI campaign and in the scene was a little kid about 5 or 6 years of age .. in the middle of a rehearsal he turned to me and said, ‘Excuse me, how old are you?’ I said, ’80’.” He continued, “He snapped back, ‘Oh! So, why are you working? My grandparents are sitting at home and chilling .. You should do that also.!!’ I did not have a reply for him. Primarily, because I was astonished at the precocious veracity of this 5-year-old! And secondly, I did not have an answer (sic).”
Big B says he won’t forget this kid
The Bollywood megastar shared that after this encounter, he gave the kid an autograph and clicked a picture with him. However, the meeting left an impression on him and he said that he won’t forget the encounter with the child. He wrote in his blog, “The conversation remained with me, as do many matters in this digitally informative encyclopedic world, and found its placing today .. this morning .. of retired work .. and screamed and waved and applauded the mountainous presence of the live audience at ‘YKW’.”
