Why did Amitabh Bachchan refuse to perform with Shahrukh Khan?

Big B was approached to perform with SRK at an award function that will take place tonight

Amitabh Bachchan, who was approached to do a small act with Shahrukh Khan at an award show, decided not to take it up as it did not seem a great idea. Though the 71-year-old actor decline to perform at the annual Screen Awards, he hopes to team up with SRK some other time.

“Soon after the work, there were meetings in the house…with Shah Rukh! There is this small matter of a Lifetime Achievement Award coming my way at the Screen Awards to be held on the 14th (January) and to be able to do an act with SRK,” Bachchan posted on his blog.

“But I felt later on that. This would not be a good idea.

The basics though work! And I do hope that Shahrukh and I get to do this act someday together,” he added. Bachchan will be given the Lifetime Achievement Award at The Screen awards, slated to take place on January 14, 2014 here.
