Amitabh Bachchan Wants To Be Treated Like A 'Buddy'!

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is respected and held in high regard by almost everyone in the film industry, not only in Mumbai, but across the country. However, the Shahenshah of Bollywood claims that he often feels alienated when treated with utmost respect.

Taking to his blog, the Big B wrote, "Being in the company of the young and the fresh, you like to be one with them. They show respect and sublimate at times. It becomes embarrassing to see them do this. Why cannot they slap my back and laugh and be as playful as Iwould like to be, a normal buddy of their age. Respect and admiration that voluntarily comes from them, immediately alienates me to another category of the elder; one that needs to be respected, but never to be included in the times of those that pay me respect."

Bachchan, who recently turned 70, will be next seen playing the role of a Jewish gangster named Meyer Wolfsheim in the Leonardo DiCaprio starrer The Great Gatsby.
