Amitabh Bachchan: “Ranbir is very popular …than me”

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan said Ranbir Kapoor is more popular than him. The actor praises and wishes to work with Ranbir, even it is for a brief role.


Ranbir Kapoor will make a special appearance in Amitabh’s Bhootnath Returns. He has already shot for his cameo in the supernatural-comedy film.

Ranbir’s character is quite different as he will be seen playing himself as actor Ranbir Kapoor in the film.

At the trailer launch event of Bhootnath Returns, Big B told reporters; “I dont have a scene or a shot with him. I hope we can work together some day in a film. I would be ok doing even a small role in his film. He is very popular …than me.”

It is always great to work with younger actors…one learns a lot from them,” he added.

In 2008 film Bhootnath, superstar Shah Rukh Khan played the role of Aditya Sharma. Now, he will reprise his role in Bhootnath Returns.

Amitabh, who played the role of a friendly ghost in the film, said in a statement; “In the first part my character goes to heaven and then he comes back to earth and how he meets this child called Akhrot is what the story is about.”

Reportedly, Amitabh will shake a leg with composer-singer Honey Singh in a rap song for the film, which is yet to be picturised. The event saw Big B playing card tricks and showing some magic to the media.
