He may be considered legendary star all across the globe, he may be having a massive fan following, he may be an icon, idol for many aspiring, wannabe actors, but our very own megastar Amitabh Bachchan thinks he is a ‘rotten actor’. Well this expression came from Big B himself after he realized his blunder in one of the scenes of Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s magnum opus BLACK .

Few days back, the actor, who habitually interacts with his fans on his micro blogging page, asked the audience about the mistake that he did in the film BLACK.
Now in response to that Big B took to his blog page and wrote, ”…Some among the Ef were wondering if I had forgotten to inform the mistake that I had asked to be noticed in that scene in ‘Black’. I have not. Many came quite close to it, and some even had most logical reasons which I must say could have been incorporated. But no !
One most interesting observation was how did I read that letter, when it was something that must have been written in braille since it came from Rani’s character. No … no problem with that. I wrote it from a dictation given to me by Rani.
The other very interesting was, how was Rani, who is deaf and dumb reacting to the reading of the letter. Good point, but since she had dictated it for me to write in normal hand, she knew the text and was reacting independently, knowing what was being read ..
In any case I was asking about the fault in my performance, in that scene, and not the other factors. And here is what the fault was:

When I inform all at the table that Rani had dictated a letter to me to be read at the table especially for her sister, whom it was believed she was jealous of, I took out the letter to read, and then my hand went straight to my upper pocket of the jacket to pull out the glasses to read .. MISTAKE !!
I needed to feel around in my other pockets to ascertain where my glasses were, instead of my hand directly going to the pocket. For some one who is soon getting into the symtoms of Alzheimers, where patients forget where and what they do, it was incorrect of me to go straight to my pocket !!
AAHHH !! Still cringe every time I think of the mistake, or see it on replays !!
Damn ! I am such a rotten actor!!”
Indeed Big B is a actor par-excellence!
