'TV serials are exacting'

Virtuoso speaks

The year 2013 has been as eventful as any other year for Amitabh Bachchan.

This year he took the plunge into fiction on television and says that it is as demanding as any other form of entertainment. Describing the experience, he said, “TV serials are as exacting as any other entertainment profession – difficult, full of apprehension and I have the joy of getting an opportunity to be involved in another aspect of this beautiful vocation. I am no different from any other. My involvement is that of an artiste.

I follow what the captain of the ship, the director, desires!” In 2013, he was busy hosting the seventh season of game show Kaun Banega Crorepati for Sony. And his fiction show, being directed by Anurag Kashyap, is also for the same channel. In terms of movies, 2013 marked Big B’s Hollywood debut with ‘The Great Gatsby’, in which he impressed with his cameo. He was also seen in Satyagraha.
