It doesn’t matter if you have star parents – if you deliver a flop, filmmakers stop taking your calls, says Abhishek Bachchan, son of Indian icon Amitabh Bachchan.
Abhishek’s career graph since his debut with Refugee in 2000 shows highs and lows. If his performances in films like Guru, Dhoom, Bunty Aur Babli, Dostana and Bol Bachchan have been applauded, he has also earned his share of criticism for some of his career choices.
“I’ve completed 16 years in the industry and it has been a mix of highs and lows. There has been tremendous learning and I’m still hungry to do a lot more. It’s been a great journey and it makes me happy and proud that I’m a part of this industry,” Abhishek said. Abhishek is the brand ambassador for Omega.
“The low phase that I went through, I think, was necessary. It teaches you a lot. I believe there is no success without failure. It keeps you grounded and makes you appreciate things,” Abhishek said.
He admits a flop film doesn’t leave one feeling good.
Abhishek said: “If you want good things to happen in your life, you first have to believe good things are possible for yourself”.
“Every actor is very emotional and so am I. I feel it’s important to learn to see the brighter side of life, and possess a sense of humour for that. My sense of humour has saved me many times when I have felt low,” Abhishek said.
“When you are low, you have to be very positive and think of the bright side. And I think I am a very positive person,” said Abhishek. He is married to actress Aishwarya Rai and they are parents to daughter Aaradhya.
Abhishek said that he is not even affected by trolls on social media, which have often hit out at him for his choice of movies. – CINEWS
