If he could, guess which role of Shah Rukh Khan would Amitabh Bachchan like to play? The one in Swades..

And Bachchan also believes that if Aishwarya Rai acts better than her soon-to-be-husband Abhishek, then it's "their problem"!

"I don't see any problem in her (Aishwarya) wanting to continue her career and wanting to continue acting and if she is going to act better than Abhishek, then it's their problem, it's not my problem," Bachchan said in an interview.

On what he thinks of Shah Rukh anchoring the TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), a role Bachchan himself used to play until recently, he says: "Shah Rukh is fine. I hadn't seen Shah Rukh's KBC, but recently I did and I thought that it was fine."

He adds that the format of the show was more impressive than any host it featured.

Shah Rukh has often been compared with Bachchan, with both having performed the lead roles in the two versions of Don.

When asked if there is any role of the younger actor that he would like to do, Bachchan says: "If ever I was of his age and if I wanted to do it, I would like to do Swades."

About his controversial association with the Samajwadi Party and its leader Amar Singh, Bachchan said it was personal rather than political.

"Friendship...I don't do politics and whatever my association is with Amar Singhji or (Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister) Mulayam Singhji, it is on a personal, private level," he says.
