What does Amitabh Bachchan want India to be called?

 Big B does not like India being called a developing nation

“I feel proud of the fact that those very things that India was once criticised for, like our growth of population, etc is now looked upon by developed nations for great consumer consumption. It goes well. I hate India being called as a developing nation. I want it to be known as a developed nation. I think we are moving forward in that direction,” said Bachchan at a function.

“I don’t believe in goals. I hope there is some opportunity and challenge that the future directors will offer me. Each decade is providing great expansion in our medium of media and entertainment. Like the growth of television, growing mobile penetration,” he said.

The legendary actor further said, “In our business of films we are we are judged by people like you. Audiences make us, their taste changes. They decide what kind of films and actors they like to watch… it is important to be in tune with the audience. The most difficult task in our business is to know what they are going to like and dislike,” he said.

“If we are able to judge how the audience will appreciate a particular kind of film, then we will make those kind of films. But we don’t know what will work how and when. Corporate have research department, but in film business audience taste and thinking keeps changing,” he added.

Big B revealed that when he entered the filmdom, the industry people rejected him for being so tall saying no heroine would work with him. Considering that his father Harivansh Rai had already established himself as poet, they said he should do something like that and not think of acting. “One should remember all these things (criticising) encourage you to go out and do better. All those who said no to me (for films), I eventually worked with them in all their films,” he added.
