Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he is relishing the "lovely" phase of being able to spend time with his grandchildren. Bachchan, who has three grandchildren -- Aaradhya, Navya Naveli and Agstya, will be seen playing a superhero in the upcoming animated TV series 'Astra Force'.
"When you are 73 these are the kind of people you meet... You meet kids, they are the happiest persons. We pass the age of youth, study, university, girls, marriage, wife, children... Now is the age of grandchildren," Bachchan told PTI.
"It is a lovely phase, a lot of people say the best phase of an individual's life is when he spends time with grandchildren. I will endorse that... Therefore this (playing superhero 'Astra') fitted into my mind...," he added.
In 'Astra Force', the 'Piku' star plays a grandfather with great powers and strength. "There are two children (in the show) who are twins and they are like my grandchildren. I love being in their company," he said.
Aaradhya has yet not seen the picture of her grandfather as an animated hero.
"She has not seen yet... It is too early to show her," he said.
