Amitabh Bachchan against remake trend

While remakes and sequels have become the latest trend in Bollywood, megastar Amitabh Bachchan personally does not favour the remake of films. "Abhishek and I feel that an original should be left (as) original. People who are doing remakes have the rights of the original films.. so they can do it," (PTI) Bachchan told, when asked if his AB Corp is planning to try their hands at remakes.

Ironically, Amitabh's super hit films like Satte Pe Satta and Agneepath, are being remade by other filmmakers. Bachchan reasons, there was a generation that loved K L Saigal as Devdas, for his generation it was Dilip Kumar as the ultimate Devdas and for today's youth its is Shahrukh Khan. “Tastes and preferences change with generations as one goes about remaking the same product. Who knows, after some years people might feel that Shahrukh is the original Don," the Big B said.

Coming back to his upcoming release Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap, which promises to bring back his 'angry young man' character, Amitabh says that he was not the trendsetter to be entitled as 'angry young man'. "There were few of them before me, prominent one being Duttsaab (Sunil Dutt) in Mother India,"Bachchan accepts.

The 68-years-old actor reasons that his 'angry young man' characters clicked, because youth were perceived to be angry. The young audience identified with his characters as an angry youngster and thus his character won. Amitabh laments that the soft lyrical music has disappeared in the present times and hopes that the song 'Haal-e-dil' sung by him in the coming Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap will revive that kind of music. The actor expressed his unhappiness over lack of good dialogues and screenplay in today's films, unlike films like Deewar, Trishul, Silsila. "Today, there is no longevity," he says.

The actor informs that performing action sequences, dancing and singing at this age for his film Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap was physically streneous. "I go to the gym every day. But for this role, I trained a little more and looked after my diet," he added.
