Big B says at the age of 71, he finds dancing ‘incongruous’, but nevertheless, he enjoys it only if the retakes are within ‘tolerable limits’.
Amitabh Bachchan was last seen in 2013 film Satyagraha. He is currently busy working for his upcoming film Bhootnath Returns, a second installment to the 2008 horror film Bhootnath.
Mr. Bachchan took to his official blog srbachchan.tumblr.com and shared; “It’s been a while, since I shook my body to dance on camera. Now at 71, it does seem incongruous. But truth be told, it’s exceedingly enjoyable, so long as the number of takes are within tolerable limits.”
Appreciating the work of choreographer Ganesh Acharya, Big B said; “He (Ganesh Acharya) is the one that has created some of the most unusual moves in the movies, and the one whose dance moves look incredibly graceful, despite his enormous girth.”
Amitabh then revealed that Acharya informed him that he was one of the group dancers in his 1990 film Agneepath during the sequence where he takes Lord Ganesha for immersion.
“Today he is an accomplished director of dance, has directed a film and produced it, opened a dance stage and a kind of school for training, and continues to devour tons and tons of kaaju and rewari and gajak,” Big B wrote.
