Amitabh Bachchan Is Afraid Of The Stage?

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan might be considered as one of the finest actors in the Indian film industry today, but it seems that the veteran actor has his limits too, as was evident by his recent blog post.

The Big B had watched a play at the Prithvi Theatre over the weekend and taking to his blog, the Shahenshah said, “It would be wonderful to get back to it, but now it is frightening to get up there... a controlled environment is suitable to us today. We can make countless mistakes not so on the platform of the stage ... not so also the immediate reaction of the audience, not so also the immediate reaction and applause of the people sitting in front of you. That attraction is something only those that experience it can say. The stage is the most trying and difficult of all performing arts, a wonderful place to learn to get initiated of what may follow some of the greats have migrated from the stage to greatness of their own elsewhere, but have never forgotten the days of the smell of the wood work.”

Bachchan will be next seen playing the role of a social crusader in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, which also stars Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpayee, Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Rao.
