I always wanted to be like Amiatabh Bachchan: Reema Kagti

Reema Kagti, the director of film Talashh, has something to confess. The director says that she always wanted to be like Amitabh Bachchan and would often imitate him as a child.

Reema has also expressed that she would like to direct Bachchan someday.

When I was a kid I used to see all masala commercial Hindi films. I loved Mr Amitabh Bachchan, I was in fact obsessed. I wanted to be like him. As a kid I used to imitate him, I used to have middle parting hair, try and speak dialogues from his films.

Kagti said.

“I was influenced by Hindi films and world cinema. I am a film buff. I don’t like horror. I find love stories boring,” she said.

Kagti is ecstatic that she got to work with Bachchan while she was an assistant director.

“I have worked with him while I was assisting for Lakshya and Armaan. But I never got time to talk to him or tell him that I am his huge fan,” she said.

Reema said she would love to direct the 70-year-old megastar but has to think of something out-of-the-box for him.

“I think you will have to come up with something very special, as he has done everything. So you will have to be very special to grab his fancy,” Kagti said.
