His role as Babban in Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag , the filmmaker's take on yesteryears' blockbuster Sholay may have drawn flak from several quarters but for mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan it was exciting as it provided him an opportunity to do something different from what he has done before.

''As far as my roles and persona are concerned, the opportunity to play and do something different, having some wonderful and live examples before me of actors who have done so in recent years, is really exciting for me,'' the Superstar of the Millennium told a television channel in New Delhi.




Speaking to 'Times Now' Sunday night, Mr. Bachchan, while acknowledging that watching him in many of the roles of late may not have been acceptable to the audience, said for him it was a matter of thrill to be given an opportunity to do such roles.

About his role as Babban in the Ram Gopal Varma directed film, Mr. Bachchan said, ''yes, this is something I have never done before. I am absolutely thrilled at being tested in this form of creativity which is to me really satisfying as an actor.''

''At the same time, I know it (seeing me in such roles and persona) is something that is perhaps not acceptable for the common man,'' the Big B said.

Ever since its release on August 31, 'Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag', touted as a remake of 70s blockbuster 'Sholay' has come under flak from film critics as well as cinegoers for its lackluster direction and performances of lead actors Amitabh Bachchan (who plays the role Amjad Khan did in the original), Ajay Devgan (who plays the role done by Dharmendra in 'Sholay'), Mohanlal (in the role done by Sanjiv Kumar), Prashant Raj (in the role done by Amitabh Bachchan in the original), Nisha Kothari ( who plays the role done by Hema Malini ) and Sushmita Sen (playing the role done by Jaya Bachchan in 'Sholay).

The film has also met with a below average audience response.
