Megastar Amitabh Bachchan launched author Vipul Mittra's novel 'The Dream Chasers' in Mumbai on September 26.

The Bollywood legend, who has been entertaining the audience for more than four decades, has figured out that it’s tough to be an actor. 

“I am having a tough time being an actor and do not have the capacity to take up non-film works like penning a book,” he remarked while speaking at the book launch. 

"I do not have the capacity to write a book. I am having a tough time being an actor. To start another profession would be very difficult for me" the megastar candidly replied when asked about what kind of book he would like to write. 
Talking about the book, he said memories of college and school days remain etched in mind forever and life becomes tough once a person enters the professional life.

"We get into life and face all the struggles. I may forget what happened with me yesterday or today but I will never forget college and school days, teachers, girlfriends, restaurants as these moments make our life enchanting," Amitabh Bachchan, also referred to as the Big B, observed. 

He disclosed his plan to be a part of the team that would be restoring legendary actor Charlie Chaplin's 'Floor Walker' at MAMI festival this year. 

"There is a group of people in Switzerland who have decided to reinvent many works of Charlie Chaplin that the world does not know. This is my attempt to bring those films up, to reprint them and bring them to the people," he revealed. 

He said that many film personalities, mainly from the West, want to contribute to the restoration exercise. "There are prominent film personalities who are contributing funds to restore these films. I have made a small contribution and chosen this film," he added.
