Ranbir Kapoor seems to have found a fan in Big B, Amitabh Bachchan. In a recent live interview Mr B confessed how he would like to work with Ranbir so as to be able to learn a few things about acting.
Now in an interview with Rajeev Masand Mr Bachchan said, “Everyone can’t be popular forever. Koi na koi toh aayega jo aur popular hoga. It’s very egoistic to take a break. Everyday you learn something….The whole equation changes…. The crowd is not attracted to you.You enter a restaurant and no one looks at you…This is bound to happen and you’ve to accept it.”
Then about entering the venue with Ranbir, Mr Bachchan said, “There were some audience, there was applause for me, but when he walked in…’Yaaaaaaay!’…No one looked at me.They were looking at him…I came in with him so I could hear some noise.”
With commendable and brutal honesty Big B talked about the process of losing stardom to someone younger. He remembered the difference in audience response in the US when he had gone for the release of Chote Miyan Bade Miyan as compared with the response earlier when he had gone earlier in his heydays.
