He had been voted the Superstar of the Millennium yet superstar Amitabh Bachchan says he can barely act and doesn't see himself capable of directing a movie. In his latest blog the superstar wrote “I am often asked when I would direct a film and my standard answer to that has always been that I can barely act, where am I going to get the acumen to direct. To me it has been an enormous task that can only be fulfilled by those that have passion and desire to want to tell a story"
Amitabh who won the Best Actor award at the recent Star Screen Awards continued “I guess sometime or the other we have all wanted to do that - to narrate a credible story. But to convert it into film is indeed another matter. I am most happy when I do not have to worry about the aspects of film making than with those connected to a performance. Prepare, perform, and push off ! It may sound too selfish a thought, but really what else could I ever contribute to it."
Big B who in his four decade long career has given Bollywood some of its biggest hits added “Directing a film is an enormous task. Every aspect of it has to be understood and envisioned before any serious claim can be made on this. Which is why I think the respect and admiration and acclaim that should have rightfully been the Director"s is sometimes destroyed by a complete misunderstanding of what his or her contribution, in the field of direction, is."
