Big B gets his first manicure

New Delhi: Mega star Amitabh Bachchan got a first hand experience of pedicure and manicure and he says he has finally understood why women spend hours in the parlours.

"I have finally discovered the joys of being pampered by a pedicure and a manicure. I have finally discovered why the ladies spend half their lives in the parlor. I have finally discovered what an idiot I was in not succumbing to the luxury of pretty ladies looking after your feet and hands while you comfortably watch the Australian Open Tournament," Bachchan wrote on his blog.

The 69-year-old actor also said that getting ones nail shaped is an art and he now sees the pampering sessions in a new light.

"And I have finally discovered what a fine art it is to get your nails in shape. All my misgivings far far away from reality. And so shall they remain," he added.
