He is still going on at the age of 80, he's still acting)."

Recently, Ranveer expressed his admiration for Amitabh in his article for India Today. He wrote, "Let's just say that the chambers of my heart are walled with posters of him. I say unequivocally that he's my greatest idol, a deity I have revered. It was my grandmother who ushered me into the fantastic world of Amitabh Bachchan and his artistry. She'd feed me her special home-cooked Sindhi delicacy sael bread whilst playing VHS after VHS of Amitabh Bachchan movies. And she would emphatically tell me, 'One day you have to grow up and be like him!'"
