He wrote on his blog Bigadda: "Being in the company of the young and the fresh, you like to be one with them. They show respect and sublimate at times. It becomes embarrassing to see them do this.

"Why cannot they slap my back and laugh and be as playful as I would like to be, a normal buddy of their age.

"Respect and admiration that voluntarily comes from them, immediately alienates me to another category of the elder; one that needs to be respected, but never to be included in the times of those that pay me respect."

The industry veteran was inspired to write the blog entry after meeting producer Rohit Shetty's mother at a wedding reception.

In October, the industry veteran had a three-day celebration attended by Bollywood stars to mark his birthday.

Shah Rukh Khan recently praised the legendary actor and claimed he wanted to be "be" Bachchan as a child.
