Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says entering politics was a mistake, and he will never again repeat the mistake.
The 72-year-old, who contested the Lok Sabha election from Allahabad in 1984 and won, resigned after three years as an MP.
“Venturing into politics was a mistake. I entered the field in the flow of emotions. But then I realised that emotions are very different from reality in the political arena. So I gave up,” the actor said.
“I have never thought of going back to politics since then,” he added. Big B was nostalgic while reciting his late father Harivanshrai Bachchan’s poem Madhushala. Amitabh noted that his father was teetotaller but his poem was on alcohol and drunkards.
