Amitabh Bachchan, who is currently busy shooting for his upcoming film 102 Not Out, says he never had the privilege of prosthetics, green backgrounds, VFX, post touch ups and face replacements during his time.

"The 102 Not Out continues unabated. And involves a good 3 hours in make-up and removal after for an hour. The pains taken by a host of artists that specialise in the craft is so commendable," Amitabh wrote on his blog. 

Amitabh also spoke about the 2001 film Aks and called it a unique concept. "Aks! A film made with great conviction and care. Unique in its concept and its execution," he wrote. Amitabh added that Aks was always special and different. 

Big B also wrote about the film's director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. "Rakeysh Mehra was the one that did an ad with me for Pepsi and then came the film. We sat on it for days, and we still do on many ideas and thoughts," he said.

"The shoot was in Budapest and that was the first time I sported a french beard, which has become permanent since," he added.
