Amitabh Bachchan probably thinks everyone knows his views on everything from movies to politics, as he is often surprised by the questions desi reporters abroad, especially in New York, throw at him.
Is he ever going to direct a film, a reporter asked him at a press conference to announce the airing of the hit Indian quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati 2 in America.
"Never," said Amitabh with a haven't-I-said-this-before kind of look. He had enough trouble managing acting, he added with a chuckle.
Another reporter wanted to know how he succeeded in everything he had tried. Amitabh looked amused. It was not true that he had succeed in everything he had touched, he answered, "but god has often been kind to me."
