The 73-year-old star, in fact, enjoys the 'self-pressure' and anxiety, and he says he would never want it any other way.  "Every film is a test, an examination for me. 'Pink' (his next) is no different. It gives me sleepless nights and anxiety before each shot that needs to be taken. That is the way I would like it to be. Nothing comes easy in life.  Certainly not a hard hitting film," Bachchan told in an interview.

The National Award-winner will be seen playing a lawyer in ‘Pink’, which is about three young women fighting a apathetic society. From having the film revolve around his character, to now getting roles, which lend support to the stories, Bachchan is in a really interesting phase in his career.

Filmmakers like Shoojit Sircar, who directed him ‘Piku’, an adorable slice-of-the-life drama about a father-daughter relationship, and has produced "Pink" are coming up with meaty, layered characters for the megastar.

Asked whether the transition from being the leading man to a character star has been difficult for him, Bachchan says he does not look at it that way.

"It's a state of mind that needs to be understood. Each artist has his or her own conception of it. I need to work and I am fortunate to get it, so I work, character role or not."
