MUMBAI: From Shah Rukh Aishwarya Rai....Amitabh Bachchan tackles some tough topics in a first-of-its-kind interview: 50 young Big B fans grill him, relentlessly, in a special show, India Questions, anchored by NDTV's Prannoy Roy, and scheduled to air on NDTV 24 X7 on Saturday, Feb 17 at 10 pm.

Addressing a fan who asks him if Aishwarya Rai will be a working member of his family, Mr. Bachchan says:

?I don't see any problem in her wanting to continue her career and wanting to continue acting and if she is going to be acting better than Abhishek, then it's their problem, it's not my problem (laughs)?."

On what he makes of Shah Rukh Khan's new role on KBC, Amitabh Bachchan says, "Shah Rukh is fine. I hadn't seen Shahrukh's KBC, but recently I did and I thought that it was fine", he comments, adding that the format of the show is more impressive than any host who it features.

Mr. Bachchan would consider doing one of Shah Rukh's roles as well: "?if ever I was of his age and if I wanted to do it, I would like to do Swadesh"

About his controversial association with Amar Singh and the Samajwadi Party, Mr. Bachchan says the association is a personal rather than a political one: "Friendship...
