"I think I am terribly overrated as an actor. They have given me more due than I deserve. I have a very very long way to go. I have lot of improvement to do", said the actor who won praise for his performances in films such as 'Bunty aur Babli' and 'Guru'.

The actor was in the city  to promote his forthcoming film 'Game'. Bachchan, in the field for over a decade, said he did not see the new crop of actors as a threat.

"They are so talented, so prepared they are doing great work," he said adding that he felt there was enough work going around for all to act.

"I am not the insecure type. I am very secure about who I am and what I do. So I am happy we got new blood coming to the film fraternity and getting more talent I think they are wonderful", said the 35-year old actor.

Asked, who his favourite actor was he said, "Me myself" and jokingly added, and "apart from me I think my father has some potential".

Answering questions ranging from doing theatre to doing television, he said he would like to consider both once time permitted him. He said he was involved with his father's firm ABL corp and there was a film on the floors and once completed there would be two more that would be taken up.

'Game', releasing this April, is a story of 4 strangers who have been invited by the reclusive Kabir Malhotra, to his private island of Samos, Greece, with twists and turns involving love, revenge, retribution and murder.

Actresses Kangana Ranaut and Sarah Jane Dias were also present with the Producer and Director Duo Ritesh Sidhwani and Abhinay Deo at the event.
