Reminiscing the independence and joy of his youth, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan Monday said he wants to be a kid again. "When we were young, we were asked by parents and elders what do you want to be when you grow up... we didn't have an answer at that time, but now at the age of 73, I have an answer... I want to be a kid again," Big B said.
He launched the first look of Bengali film Open Tee Bioscope by Shoojit Sircar and Ronnie Lahiri.
Big B recalled his initial days in Kolkata in the 1960s, and said the city those days was 'the most magnificent and the most happening city in the entire country'.
"Those were the years of getting independence for the first time, being free and being on your own after having lived a very cocooned life with your family or in a boarding school where you were guided by rules and regulations and suddenly you find yourself free," he said.
"It was a great joy, and yes we were young, we were single and we were independent. We did many things which can't be narrated here," the star said.
He wondered at the end of the day, 'we think are we working for a living or are we living to work'?
