‘Demotion is the toughest battle’
Lauded for his performances over a span of four decades, veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan (left) believes the “toughest battle” a celebrity faces is demotion — a phenomena which takes guts to come to terms with. “Celebrityhood is no different from a championship... It is the toughest battle that celebrity faces... lauded and applauded with unprecedented love and affection one day and then another day its all gone… gone to another (sic),” the actor posted on his blog.
“You need the strength of a bull, skin of a rhino and the roar of a lion to understand the phenomena that unfolds... it needs guts to withstand the demotion, to seek its acceptance with grace and dignity... and to realise before long, its presence and its eventuality (sic),” the 72-year-old, who was last seen in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku, added.
