Mumbai: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has had thousands of media interactions over his 40-year-old glorious career, says he finds it nerve wracking to face journalists.
The 72-year-old "Piku" star, in a candid confession, said the fourth estate "grills and pins down" the stars.
"Media always wins, journalists always win... We get pasted, defeated and pinned down to our seats... Wondering and hoping for this ordeal to be over so we could breath fresh air again. Not easy facing the fourth estate, nor is it ever going to be a state where you shall come out looking victorious.
"No... Never... It shall never happen. So the mantra is take what you get in as courteous a manner as possible and hope that the gentleman or the lady that grills you shall be perhaps a little compassionate when they write in their column or present you through the 'tube'," Bachchan wrote in his blog.
