`Bbuddah...` role reminds Big B of college days
New Delhi: Riding a Harley Davidson, wearing retro-styled printed shirts and playing a carefree person in "Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap" reminds Amitabh Bachchan of his college days.
The 68-year-old star is an alumnus of Delhi University`s Kirori Mal College and just like any normal student, he too was into Elvis music, bunking classes and making an effort to impress the girls.
"What a time we would have then ! Bunking class, jamming at restaurants and coffee joints with the `gang`, buzzing off on picnics in borrowed cars and scooters and then dragging ourselves home looking most studious and overworked in college!! We were incorrigible, were we not," Big B wrote on his blog Bigb.bigadda.com.
"Ah! those days of College and University. How ever can we ever forget them! Sad they got over in 3 years! Never knew how time flew by. The freedom to move independently, to follow opinion away from the norm, to become temporarily impressed by pseudo dudes, to lumber up to the girls at the bus stop, hands in pocket of unwashed for a year jeans, and the only one you had, shirt collars up, Elvis Presley in making side locks, the only book of study in the hip pocket, and wondering why none of the girls was noticing you.
"And the music …. never went beyond Elvis, and for the more intellectual, Miles Davis and Zoot Sims ! Any one remember those fantastic jazz artists ?? Astounding!!," he added.
