In a candid conversation with TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan admits that although a lot of film artists managed to enter the political arena, he would still be uncomfortable in that field. Bachchan also says that as artists, they are more concerned with their own creative work and hence prefer to be on the right side.
Bachchan also speaks about the pain he went through when his name was dragged into the Bofors scandal. He notes that this has encouraged him to maintain a dignified silence on several issues. On a lighter note, Bachchan says that he would like to be a journalist, as this would allo him to ask sharp and hard-hitting questions, instead of having to face them.
