, says he didn't have the opportunity to share screen space with Ranbir Kapoor who does a cameo in the film, and hope they can work together some day. "Ranbir has done a cameo but I have not shot with him. He is very popular and I can't compare myself with him. Hope I get to work with him someday," the iconic actor said at the trailer launch of the film.



And it's not just Ranbir, Amitabh says he enjoys working with new talent. "I am still learning and for an actor, observation is very important. It has been so long for me in this industry and in every 10 to 15 years there is a new generation coming and I enjoy working with them," says the veteran.



And while he likes to observe the younger lot, he admits that his greatest inspiration have been his parents. "For me, inspiration comes from different fields. When it comes to my work, I look up to Dilip Kumar, Waheeda Rehman and many from the west," he says, adding, "In my life, my father and my mother have been my greatest inspiration. I feel my mother is the most beautiful woman in the world. I feel fortunate to be born to them."



Big B lost his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, a famous poet, in 2003 and his mother Teji Bachchan died in 2007. The 71-year-old regularly writes his blog and shares his thoughts and views with his fans, who he calls his extended family. Asked is he has ever considered writing an autobiography, since he writes regularly, he says, "No, I feel hesitant to do something like that."
