Mumbai, June 12: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan says his granddaughter Aaradhya talks non-stop and he would like to pick up that trait from the three-and-a-half-year-old toddler.
The 72-year-old Bollywood megastar was interacting with media after the launch of Worldoo.com, a website for children above the age of five.
“These days Aaradhya talks non-stop and I would like to learn that from her. The media thinks I talk less,” he said here on Wednesday evening, adding “When Aaradhya was one-and-a-half-year-old she started playing games on Ipad…searching for her favourite cartoons.”
Amitabh Bachchan said: “Aaradhya is too small to use this website. It’s meant for kids of certain age group – above 5 – and developed after a lot of research. Kids usually have to do school projects from the age of five.”
Worldoo.com invited children, parents and teachers to contribute in building the new platform.
Big B said the website will serve as a one-stop learning stage for children and shape their growth.
“We keep hearing and reading about how to raise children. This is an informative website for kids which has fun activities and also teaches them how to look after their parents and keep cleanliness, among other things. This website is like a one stop platform for kids.”
He said: “Gennext will be better educated. I am glad to be a part of this initiative that aims to create a meaningful online environment for kids.”
Recollecting his childhood days, Bachchan said, “70 years back, there was nothing of this sort for us..we used to play marbles, ride bicycle, we used to get knowledge from schools and stories narrated by our elders. Today’s children are aware about latest technology.”
