I am such a rotten actor, says Amitabh Bachchan
Amitabh Bachchan is considered an acting institution. Bollywood looks up to him proudly and with sheer respect. He is an acting legend and inspiration for all who wants to make big in Bollywood. One would run short of words to describe his acting caliber and achievement but Amitabh Bachchan feels that he is a rotten actor.
For few days, he has been asking his fans to point out the mistake that he made in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Black’ eight years ago. Though the film was hugely acclaimed and Rani Mukherjee and Big B’s role was highly appreciated, the megastar feels that there is some fault in one of the scenes and finally, he found the mistakes. In the movie, he played an Alzheimer and Rani a blind, deaf and dumb girl.
"...I was asking about the fault in my performance, in that scene, and not the other factors. And here is what the fault was," Amitabh posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, ‘Black’ revolves around a blind and deaf girl and her relationship with her teacher, who later develops Alzheimer.
Sharing the mistake, he posted: "When I inform all at the table that Rani had dictated a letter to me to be read at the table, especially for her sister, whom it was believed she was jealous of, I took out the letter to read, and then my hand went straight to my upper pocket of the jacket to pull out the glasses to read... Mistake."
"I needed to feel around in my other pockets to ascertain where my glasses were, instead of my hand directly going to the pocket. For someone who is soon getting into the symptoms of Alzheimer's, where patients forget where and what they do, it was incorrect of me to go straight to my pocket," he posted.
After eight years, Amitabh Bachchan regrets for making the blunder in the scene."Aah! still cringe every time I think of the mistake, or see it on replays! Damn! I am such a rotten actor," posted Big B.
