Big B can fly planes!

Not many know that Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is known for his acting, can also fly airplanes.

During the grand finale of "India's Prime Icon", the inimitable actor disclosed his hidden talent.

Not only that, the 70-year-old revealed that at one point in his life he had wished to join the Air Force.

He also spoke about the heights he hoped to reach, which today seem as a fairly low goal when compared to the status he has achieved.

"Yes I did take up flying. And if there ever is an emergency and you are in the aircraft, I may be able to land that plane," he said.

However, showing off his humorous side, the legendary actor quickly added, "provided it's a glider".

Amitabh was chosen as the winner of "India's Prime Icon". The episode of the show airs Friday on Big CBS Prime.
