Even as biopics are in vogue in the Hindi film industry, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who turned 73 on Sunday, says a film made on his life will be “definitely a flop”.
“A film on me will be definitely a flop and first of all I would not like a film to be made on me and neither can I say which actor should do it,” Big B said.
Indian cinema in itself is in a phase where several filmmakers are digging into life stories of sportspersons. After movies on boxer MC Mary Kom, sprinter Milkha Singh, athlete Paan Singh Tomar, there are more biopics coming on cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni and even hockey legend Dhyan Chand.
Talking about this trend, Big B said: “I am not in that league”. However, he said he would welcome a biopic on his father, the legendary poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
“I will not stop anyone who wants to make a film on my dad’s life,” he said.
The actor also said that he is spending more time with his family on his birthdays.
“Earlier I used to work on my birthday, but of late my family wants to spend time with me… so now the birthday has become a family affair,” he said.
