New Delhi: The superstar Amitabh Bachchan often shares candid moments with his fans. In one such incident, the actor stated how a kid in age group five years gave him the advice to sit at home and chill after the former informed him that he is 80 years. The actor took to his blog writing that while he was at a campaign a child approached him and asked him about his age. But what came as the boy’s reply after hearing the veteran actor’s age left him speechless.

Amitabh Bachchan wrote, “Work calls and gives impetus to the creative nerves all about, seeking where the effort needs to be pulled out of .. and one discovers to one’s horror that there really is no such gadgetry at all within the system ..cope with it buddy or give the life up .. ! I was at work for the RBI campaign and in the scene was a little kid about 5 or 6 years of age .. in the middle of a rehearsal he turned to me and said ..‘excuse me, how old are you ?’ I said ‘80′ ! he snapped back ‘ Oh! so why are you working? My grandparents are sitting at home and chilling .. you should do that also ..!!’”

The actor further added, “I did not have a reply for him .. Primarily because I was astonished at the precocious veracity of this 5 yr old! And secondly, I did not have an answer! So bid him goodbye at the end of the shoot, took a picture with him and gave him an autograph, instigated by his mother, and left… The conversation remained with me, as do many matters in this digitally informative encyclopaedic world, and found its placing today .. this morning .. of retired work .. and screamed and waved and applauded the mountainous presence of the live audience at ‘YKW’.”
