Actor Amitabh Bachchan says he feels jealous whenever he watches wonderful films like Raanjhanaa, which he is not part of. The 70-year-old veteran saw the Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor-starrer in celebration of India's victory at the Champions Trophy.

"It was a delight. I get so envious after seeing all these wonderful films, and lament and regret that I am not in them, even in a small capacity, for I love the immense talent and finesse that today's cinema with its young brigade brings to the world," Big B posted on his blog.

The actor also has a few movies in his "to-watch" list. "I shall be seeing some other unreleased films given to me by Anurag Kashyap, by some talented directors and actors ... a joy always," he wrote.

On the big screen, Amitabh will soon be seen in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha.

Amitabh Bachchan is also looking forward to watch Richa Chadda’s performance in the film. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is keen to watch director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba's movie Fukrey.

Big B is specially looking forward to watch actress Richa Chadda's performance in the movie, which also features Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh, Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma, Priya Anand and Vishakha Singh. "I wish to see Fukrey which is garnering praise from all quarters. The performances are good, and one such comes from Richa Chadda, who Anurag brought to meet me on the sets (of a TV show).

"She was so good in Gangs Of Wasseypur and I believe has done very good work in Fukrey too," Big B posted on his blog. Big B will soon be seen in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, and he is busy shooting for his debut TV fiction show with Kashyap.
