‘Sporty aur bubbly’ – that’s Abhishek Bachchan!

Spontaneous yet self-effacing (just like his legendary superstar dad Amitabh), Abhishek Bachchan seemed modesty personified when he asked the invited  Mumbai-centric movie-savvy audience whether they had watched his movie 'Bunty Aur Babli'.

As is known, the maverick musical 'BAB' was a runaway hit and is known for its awesome histrionic sparring between the Sr and Jr Bachchan as also the chartbusting fusion song 'Kajra Rey'. The witty, articulate Abhishek was sharing his candid views at a recent star-studded cinema summit. Speaking about his two-year self-imposed sabbatical from movies, the 'Manmarziyaan' lead actor felt that in today's tech-savvy times he had not really lost touch with his fans or with the cinematic medium. “I just needed to recalibrate how I was doing the work; not the work I was doing. I was confident about the person I aimed to become. Life and film-making isn't meant to be easy. It's important to be challenged on a daily basis and not be complacent,” explained Abhishek, who off-screen, is a doting dad to his 'laadli beti' Aaradhya.

While most box-office-savvy filmy heroes take into account the previous movie performance of the director, before they sign on his next project, Abhishek prefers to be exceptional. “Frankly, I have never judged a director on his past records, and I am completely a director's actor. Ever if I am not in compliance with the director's vision, I try to convince them. But at the same time an actor needs to be selfish, I mean in a positive way, to contribute his best for the betterment of the venture,” shrugs the talented actor who also has this sporty penchant for basketball, football and kabaddi. “Metaphorically, sports teaches you the importance of team work, self-belief, sporting spirit, never to give up and of course, resilience,” insists Abhishek.
