Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan admitted that a lot people assume he is a ‘false modest person'.

“As an actor, I have been in this line for 45 years. Most of them (actors in ‘Pink’) are new faces in this film and you have not seen them before.” the 73-year-old said at the film’s trailer launch.

“It’s exceptional work that they have done, and I say this from the bottom of my heart. I am not being modest. I know a lot of people call me a false modest person, but this is the honest truth,” he added.

According to Bachchan, the colour pink signifies women empowerment. “The film is about women and their strength so we have kept the title ‘Pink’. Women should stand up for their rights. The film is about women,” he said.

The movie, directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhary, also features Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang in key roles.
