We can’t possibly imagine veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan to be intimidated of anyone in the film indsutry to work with. Being in the film fraternity even at the age of 75, the actor still holds command and has earned it over the years. Despite his magnificent aura, the mega star revealed that he is scared to work with the young guns of Bollywood like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and the reason is quite startling.

As the 10th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati rolled out, the host Big B himself was asked at an interaction on his experience of working with Indian cinema’s leading ladies to which he replied, “From the younger lot, Alia, Anushka and Deepika – all of them are such powerful actors that I am scared to work with them. Kha hi jaayege humko.”

He furthermore added, “We took years and years and years and years and we are still trying to fine tune our craft, these people they come first day on the set and they know exactly what they are doing. They are so confident and so mature.”


The Zanjeer actor didn’t limit his praises for just the divas but was also impressed by the boys like Varun Dhawan to Ranbir Kapoor, but Kartik Aaryan’s performance in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety charmed him the most. He said, “Look at what Ranbir is doing and Sushant, Varun and Rajkummar Rao. Recently, there was this film Sonu ki Titu – bada ajeeb sa naam hai – usme Aaryan was so good. The film had such a good story. I get so obsessed and I keep writing to them saying well done.”
