Amitabh Bachchan is a legend and everyone in the film industry is aware of this. When he was asked what the major revolutionary step for his success was, he said,
"We never work because we are going to cause a revolution. We work because we enjoy doing something and hope people like it," Amitabh, who believes that when people do something different there is always an apprehension.
"Graphic India wanted to design me as one of the characters. The look of the superhero was with my characteristics and facial features and therefore, I said if facial features are mine, they should carry my voice as well. And so, I did the voice-over," he added.
About animation series these days, he says "During my time, the kind of superheroes that kids see today, we didn't have. The Lone Ranger and Superman were my favourites. As time passed, generations grew up with different kind of superheroes. This (the show) is an attempt to combine the two generations," said the legend, who has three grandchildren.
"Astra and the kids meet a lot of aliens, and at the end of the day, there is always a message that superheroes teach while trying to overcome the evil forces."
In terms of the crime he wants to get rid of in India, he said, "Some of the evil stuff like poverty, and try to make India a clean nation and try to get rid of some of the ailments that we have in the society,”
On what his “Make in India Dream” is, he said, "We keep making movies. We are doing animated films, doing music and television. All are made in India in our creative field. That's good," said Amitabh.
Hailing the animation industry of India, he said: "We have a tremendous animation talent in this country. A lot of the work in Hollywood comes from here in India. They got a lot of talent from here. I am proud of the fact that we have the talent here which matches anything that is best in the world."
