New Delhi, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, whose antipathy towards the media is well known, Wednesday said he “would like to be a journalist”.
“I would like to be a journalist. In fact in my interviews that I had given in the 1970s, I mentioned during most of them that I want to become a journalist in my next life,” Amitabh told reporters here.
“I say this because I feel that it is a very difficult task since sometimes your conscience doesn’t match with reality and that’s where you want to go home and tear yourself apart and take a decision,” he added.
This, from the 66-year-old who has been castigating the media and journalists on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com that he started in 2008.
Amitabh �was in the capital to promote his forthcoming film “Rann” about the Indian media. He plays the head of a 24-hour news channel.
Helmed by Ram Gopal Varma, “Rann” also has actors Paresh Rawal and Reitesh Deshmukh in pivotal roles.
