Megastar, Amitabh Bachchan, who is at his peak as an artist, still loves to remain simple and down to earth. He is innocent and childish and also respects young actors in B-town, says filmmaker Shoojit Sircar.

Sircar, has worked with Amitabh Bachchan in films like ‘Piku’ and ‘Pink’.

"Every time working with him is like a big opportunity. I would definitely want to work with him again," Sircar said during a promotion event of his forthcoming production venture ‘Running Shaadi’.

"Now he (Amitabh) has become very easy with us. He gives us a lot of space to talk to. Earlier we were scared of him, but now he has come down to our level and he talks like that," added Sircar.

He finds the 74-year-old to be like a ‘child’. 

"He is like a 14-year-old boy. The most important thing about him is that he respects the young generation of filmmakers, writers or actors. He is not like, ‘I belong to an older generation'," he said.

"We have learned a lot from him and keep doing so. He is a fantastic artist to work with," he added.

Earlier, Sircar was rumoured to be making a documentary on the ‘Agneepath’ star. However, he clarified that the film he is making is not a documentary.
