At a recent press conference, Shah Rukh had named Aaradhya-AbRam as the best couple when he was asked to choose between Ranbir-Deepika, Ranveer-Deepika, Alia-Sidharth and Fawad-Sonam.

Though his Dilwale co-star Kajol disagreed with him saying AbRam is younger than Aaradhya, the Chennai Express actor said, "Love has no age."

Mr Bachchan was speaking at the press conference of his upcoming thriller-drama Wazir. The 73-old actor said that his wife Jaya Bachchan has watched the movie twice.

"She is my wife, so of course we will talk (about the film)... Not once, she has watched the film twice," he said.

To this, filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who is producing Wazir, added, "When she (Jaya) went to watch it the first time we were nervous, when she went the second time we were drinking champagne. She has watched the film twice in three days."

Directed by Bejoy Nambiar, Wazir is the story of two unusual friends - a paralysed chess grandmaster, played by Mr Bachchan, and a grief stricken former ATS officer, played by Farhan Akhtar - brought together by a twist of fate.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra said that Big b went through a "lot of pain" to play the role of a man who has no legs.

"He went through a lot of pain for this role. It is very difficult to perform a person who has no legs when you actually have legs, and you're pretending, acting that you don't have. You will see what an incredible job he has done," he said. (Also Read: Amitabh Bachchan Says Wazir Role Was 'Physically Challenging')

Mr Bachchan, who has earlier collaborated with the producer in Eklavya - The Royal Guard, said when he first started working with him, "two ladies" from Bollywood had given him different opinions.

"When I was going to work with him for the first time, two ladies gave me warnings. The first one said, 'He will take care of you and will be the best producer ever to work with.' The second one asked me when am I leaving, I said, 'Tomorrow,' she said, 'Okay then. I'll talk to you day after because you'll return'," he said.
