Dubai: Despite being the most successful actor in Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan wants to be remembered as just another name.
Apart from a successful acting career, Bachchan had also won the People’s Choice Award for the most popular TV host for ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, the Indian version of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’.
But Bachchan told Gulf News that he wouldn’t survive beyond the second or third question if put on the participant seat.
When it comes to having himself being remembered, Bachchan feels he’s no better than the guy next door.
He doesn’t think there’s anything special about him and wants people to remember him just like another name.
He has given blockbusters such as ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Deewar’, ‘Abhimaan’, ‘Saudagar’ and ‘Chupke Chupke’ to name just a few.
But it was Yash Chopra’s ‘Deewar’ that re-inforced “the angry young man” in him.
When asked what he would advise newcomers, he said he’s nobody to give advice.
But he added that they should be sincere to their work and must keep trying.
When he’s not on screen Bachchan said he is just like any other father and grandfather, who likes spending time with grandchildren and with the family.
