Mr. Bachchan said that he’ll be glad to follow in the footsteps of well-known actor Ashok Kumar, who played sturdy characters even at the age of 80.
On the eve of his birth anniversary, Big B said, “When I was a four-year-old I used to ask for gifts on my birthdays but that phase is over now. I think the biggest gift for me at this point of my life would be that I continue getting work and the support of my family.”
