“Being in the company of the young and the fresh, you like to be one with them. They show respect and sublimate at times. It becomes embarrassing to see them do this,” Amitabh wrote on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
The 70-year-old says the admiration and respect he receives from youngsters makes him feel alienated.
“Why cannot they slap my back and laugh and be as playful as I would like to be, a normal buddy of their age. Respect and admiration that voluntarily comes from them, immediately alienates me to another category of the elder; one that needs to be respected, but never to be included in the times of those that pay me respect,” he added.
