No plans to contest elections: Big B

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday said he has no plans to contest the next presidential elections.

"I am deeply humbled and touched by the thought. But I am not worthy of such a distinguished post of responsibility. Besides, no such offer or proposal has come my way yet," Bachchan told reporters in Mumbai.

Earlier, Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh had told journalists that Bachchan's candidature for the post of president could be considered after the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.

The idea had also received support from the Telugu Desam Party chief and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
