Amitabh Bachchan is considered an evergreen star in Bollywood for no ordinary reason. The actor has worked on a plethora of films, and has been ruling the silver screen for so many decades now. Even at the age of 80, Big B can easily give competition to any other young actor, and give them a run for their money. Films, web series, advertisements, reality shows, Big B has been shedding his versatility everywhere, and his fans are always excited about his performances.
In one of the latest episodes of his quiz-based reality show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, Amitabh Bachchan recalled an anecdote from his 1981-film, Lawaris. Well, it so happened that during an audio question in the show, the iconic song, Mere Angne Mein from the film, was played. While Big B looked embarrassed for the computer to play the song, he nevertheless asked the question related to it to the contestant. While the contestant picked the correct answer for the question, which is that the actor is the singer of the song, Amitabh narrated how he ended up actually singing the song in the movie. He mentioned:
“The actor is the singer, and what a bad singer. My father used to play the drum and sing this song on Holi. This film (Laawaris) was made by director Prakash Mehra. He also made Zanjeer. He came up to me one day and said, hey, Amit, give me this song. I asked him what he meant by that. He then explained that he wanted to use the song in his film, and I said sure, why not! He then said, you will have to sing it. I told him, I can’t. Phate huye baans jaise, I am a very bad singer. I cannot sing. But he was persistent that I sing it the way I do at home. That’s how it was included and I sang it with great difficulty.”
In one of his earlier episodes in Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, Big B had spoken about his fear of getting replaced from his on-screen work in the showbiz world. While discussing with a contestant about the future possibilities of AI development in the world, Big B shared that he is scared that in the near future, he might be replaced by an AI hologram, which looks as realistic as the person himself. Moreover, he added that he doesn’t want to be rendered jobless because of AI.
On August 31, 2023, Big B had taken to his blog and revealed the secret behind his unbeatable energy even at the age of 80. He mentioned how people are left in awe of his energy, and often ask him how he is able to do so many things together. The actor credited it to his parents, Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan for upbringing him in a way, and highlighted that he had always been so energetic all throughout his life.
In one of his older blogs, Big B had revealed how he was able to quit smoking and drinking from his lifestyle. He admitted that he was quite indulgent in those habits in his youth, but he soon enough realised that the ill-effects of his habits had already made a damage to his health, and thus immediately decided to quit it.
