At 70, Amitabh does not feel overworked

Having acted in over 180 films in the last four decades and being active on the small screen as well, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who will turn 70 soon, feels he is not overworking himself. Bachchan says he can’t think of slowing down as long as he is healthy.

‘The definition of slowdown might not be the same for all. At this point of time I don’t think I am overworking myself. I am comfortable with the kind of work that I am doing,’ said Bachchan.After making is film debut with Saat Hindustani [1969], the veteran actor’s last release was Department this year.

‘I don’t aspire for anything. I would continue working so long as I am healthy. Also, I don’t make resolutions in terms of roles, because I am 70 now and so I can’t play a 30-year-old. So whatever is offered to me I do that kind of stuff,’ he added.

On October 11 he would turn 70, but the number does not scare him at all.

‘No [it does not scare me], why it should it? I can’t understand why people consider 70 [years] to be some kind of landmark,’ said Bachchan.

Big B is also hosting the sixth edition of the popular quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati.
