Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he does not like India being called a developing nation.

“I feel proud of the fact that those very things India was once criticised for, like population growth, etc., is now looked upon by developed nations for great consumer consumption. It goes well. I hate India being called a developing nation. I want it to be known as a developed nation. I think we are moving forward in that direction,” Mr. Bachchan said at a function here on Saturday.

“I don’t believe in goals. I hope there is some opportunity and challenge that future directors will offer me. Each decade is providing great expansion in media and entertainment,” he said.

The legendary actor further said: “In our business of films, we are we are judged by people like you. Audiences decide what kind of films and actors they like to watch ... The most difficult task in our business is to know what they are going to like and dislike ... We don’t know what will work how and when.”
