I'm fortunate that people are writing stories for me : Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood actor
Updated on: 06 Jun 2016
He may be a veteran actor, but Amitabh Bachchan exudes the curiosity of a child as he takes in all the developments that the film industry has witnessed over the years. Amazed and amused at the style in which young filmmakers are whipping up scripts, the actor shares his excitement at being part of a new wave, his diligence to exercise and being an early morning bird, no matter what.
Is it true that you dub your films early in the morning? Yes, I think one is fresh at that time. Also, you don't have the pressure of the rest of that day's work. It's a nice time to dub.
You also start your exercise regime at 4 am Not 4 am, but yes, I do work out early in the morning. I started it only 5-6 years ago. Someone told me about how there are trainers available and that they fix you. Jaya, Abhishek had their trainers but it was a term I wasn't acquainted with until recently. So I said okay.
Do you diligently workout now? Yes, once I started it, I didn't feel like stopping. It really regulates your life and you feel good. The day you don't go to the gym, you feel a little odd. I am feeling odd today because I haven't gone to the gym.
What is it that drives you to work 17-18 hours a day?
