  1. If one watches quality actors like Tom Hanks and Lionardo Di Caprio and has the ability to appreciate their acting, actors like Amitabh Bacchan, Sharukh Khan, Salman Khan look like second grade actors. To be fair, the acting talent of Amitabh Bacchan got lost in the commercial movies. The Khans I mentioned have no acting talent at all. The fan following is for the dancing and melodrama, rather than for Quality Cinema. Amir Khan is the King Khan and is doing some justice to cinema making. The others are just making money.

  2. If Amitabh Bacchan doesnt like the name "Bollywood" for the Hindi Movie Industry, He should try to change it to something suitable. With his aura and kind of fan following in India, I am sure the industry would soon catch up with it. It seems Bacchan didnt understand what Gandhiji said "Be the change you want in this world". Bacchan seems to be happy to fit in and make his money.

  3. He is the only actor in the film industry that have the worst diction. He could never speak Urdu properly or should I say Hindi. He always projected himself to be a tough guy in all his movies. He is a mediocre actor who is praised from those who do not have no other means of entertainment in his country. They pay a few rupees to see him jump up and down like a monkey. The only thing that is remotely cultural was his father was a poet.

  4. India is only country in the world, where we have all religion and where 62 sect of Islam is growing without any atrocities among themselves or from other majority religion like Hinduism (84%). Which other country can boost of this? These 3rd class media try to malign with wrong accusations ignoring many Islamic countries with real and present atrocities on different sect of Islam and other religious communities? No country can ever compare to India in religious tolerance ever! India is country where you can find calmness and can be spiritual without being prosecuted.

  5. कोई भी सेलिब्रेटी या नेता इंदिरा गाँधी के बाद दलितों के बारे में हकीकत बताने या कुछ करने की हिम्मत नहीं जुटा पाता केवल हवाई बातें करके वह वाह वाही लुटने के चक्कर में रहते है दलितों पर अत्याचार के खून में डूबी संस्कृति को हम किस मूंह से मज़बूत संस्कृति होने का दावा कर सकते हैं Iजब तक भारतीय समाज में दुर्व्यवहार की जड़ जाति प्रथा मौजूद हम अच्छे राष्ट्र तक होने का दावा नहीं कर सकते Iभारत की सच्ची तस्बीर देखने के लिए और भारत को आदेश राष्ट्र बनाने के लिए डा.अम्बेडकर के दर्शन को लागू करना ज़रूरी है क्योंकि जब तक हम स्वयं को की जाति विशेष का होने के बजे केवल भारतीय नहीं कहते we are nothing.एंड will be backward after all और यह बिना समाज की दृढ इच्छा शक्ति के संभव नहीं

  6. I am Australian and lived in India in the eighties and saw some of this man's movies. I remember the great affection and esteem that the Indian people held him in. So very good to see him still well and showing great integrity and grace.

  7. INDIA IS SECULAR BY CONSTITUTION BUT MINORITIES ARE BEING OPPRESSED BY MAJORITY HINDU .ITS ECONOMIC GROWTH IS VERY MEDICORE COMPARE TO CHINA .CORRUPTION GANG RAPE AND SEVER POVERTY IS WIDESPREAD EVEN INCREASING WITH THE PASSAGE OF TIME.
    THESE ELITE ACTORS ARE REAL BENEFICIARY OF CRUMBLING INDIAN SOCIETY SO THEY TRY TO HIDE HARD REALTIES BY SOFT SPOKEN
    THAT IS TRUE

  8. Nice interview but Mr. Bachchan I hope you get this that right now in 2016 we have around 33,000 job seekers that enter the workforce every day. Indian Ministry of Human Resources Development recently released a document that stated this fact and it is estimated that there will be 104.62 million fresh entrants into the workforce by 2022 that's 10.46 crore that's about 50,000 new job seekers a day ! Hence, we need to bring in strict family planning laws, it is HIGH TIME ! I'm afraid, you are wrong on the "population" issue ! It is the biggest bane for us.

  9. I think the questions were little out of track just to make sure Amitabh will get to tell evrything he is doing for social life. We should not blame the anchor. Good educating interaction for her

  10. It is easy to Blame on Great Nationalist Organization RSS . But My Friends Go and Watch them Work with them . Only in one day international Islami and Christian media mind will be totally change. It is my challenge. Why u all make their report while sitting in AC rooms in Foreign Offices without knowing the real truth and feel the reality.
