Amitabh Bachchan happy maintaining distance from politics, elections
Actor Amitabh Bachchan was spotted in South Mumbai at the Nehru Centre where he felicitated top ten filmmakers for making films for social cause, films that can be thought provoking for societal betterment.
Dressed in his usual dapper style, the actor was all in favour of films as catalysts for bringing about a change in society. Bachchan said, "Every society has flaws, but someone should take the initiative to bring a (positive) change and we all should be thankful for the same and accept in gratefully."
But when asked if he could use his iconic status to bring a change in perception of people who feel elections just won't bring a change in our society, the actor said, "I'm not a global icon...and I don't know anything about elections."
While many celebs are not just talking about elections but openly lobbying for parties, it seems Bachchan is happy maintaining his distance from the political arena!
