Every decade has brought something new: Amitabh Bachchan

Mumbai, Jan 18 (IANS) Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan says he doesn’t think that the earlier time is better than the current rather he believes that every decade brings something new.

Conversing at the launch, of ‘Once Upon A Time In India – A Century Of Indian Cinema’ on Tuesday, Amitabh said, “There is no favourite decade for me. Every decade has brought some new thing with it. In every decade we have been introduced to some first-ever memories and new artists. So saying that the earlier decade is better than the current one is quite an atrocity.”

About the current time, when there are many more realistic films being made, he stated, “‘Piku’ and ‘Pink’ both are the revolutionary movies. ‘Piku’ only depicts the relationship between a father and daughter. The film is a great mark of identification of the daughters of India.”

“And of course the issue was so strong, valuable and pertinent in ‘Pink’ that needed to be told in a powerful manner. I am really grateful to Shoojit and Anirudhh for thinking of making the film without being preachy,” Amitabh said.

“It touches the issue briefly with a lasting impression. Devising the last comment ‘No means No’ is very debatable and the writer has done a brilliant job,” the actor added.

“We still have a long way to go. We hear some incredibly hideous incidents that keep happening in our country. I do pray that it stops and hope that films like ‘Pink’ bring some sense,” he said at the event.
