Fame isn't perpetual: Big B(amitabh bachchan)

Even at 69, megastar Amitabh Bachchan remains one of the most sought after actors in Bollywood, but he feels fame is not perpetual and will eventually fade away.

"As we drive to the eatery, I sit in the front seat - the ladies being at the back and I notice that there are still some passerby's on the street that fling a recognition with smile. Recognition and compassionately so, does wonders for morale," Amitabh wrote on his blog bigb.bigadda.com.

"But there have been many occasions when interested has faded from the celebrity. Has happened to me on many an occasion. It is a bit discomforting, but it must be known that this glory and recognition shall all fade away one day," he added.

The actor, who has spent over four decades in the Hindi film industry, suggests that one should not be enamoured by fame and be gracious if it fades away.

"Some take it kindly, some do not. It is hard and harsh both to see adulation favour away from you and settle on another. Better then to not be too enamoured by it when it serves you. Life is transitory as is fame... Be gracious in accepting that it has gone away, elsewhere," he said.

    Omg! Amitabh Bachchan doesn't know acting? I'm really shocked and sad, he is my fav :(
    Thanks for opening my eyes LOL
    I'd love to see the person perform AB's scenes and upload them. Array acting talent toh bahut hoga na agar AB ko non-actor kaha toh.

    And the person who said this has more followers than AB LOL

    I must admit one more thing, either the person who posts articles is a great fan of AB, or she loves seeing negativity.

    Why don't you write your own blog in your great impressive language then?
    Alright if he has no acting talent, go and do his scenes and upload on YT. Then post them here, if you have acting talent LOL I'll watch with others.
    And if no, then shut up your big mouth and avoid posting negative every time.

    Fake humility. Stop writing thses boring blogs mr bhachan. Your style of writing is awful and anyone with any brains can see your a fraudster with no acting talent. You were just at the right place at the right time.

    Only Mr Senior Bachchan has such humility, and that's why he is still so luved. Speaks of his upbringing and his family values.

    Such humility can be expected only from an actor par excellence like Bachchan sahab! Despite reaching heights of success that he has, he is grounded!

    Yeah and you all give them attention with media LOL
    Why doesn't anyone object on media people? It's them who carve articles and he doesn't write for them.

    Lol if there is any family who would go to any extent for publicity, its the Bachchan family! They pretend they want their private space away from media but at the same time they want the media and everyone else to be talking about them. Bunch of hypocrites!
