Abhishek Bachchan: Happy to See Aishwarya Step Out of Comfort Zone
‘It’s all about carrying your family,’ reads a tagline on a poster from Abhishek Bachchan’s upcoming film All Is Well. The actor seems to do that proudly.
A few years ago, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, a movie which starred his parents Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, went with the tagline, ‘It’s all about loving your parents.’ The baton has indeed been passed. While he was promoting All Is Well, we asked Abhishek if he was the ‘ideal son.’
Stating that the movie did drive some truth home, Junior B said, “Well, I am a good son and aspire to be an ideal son. Whenever Aishwarya and me go out, Dad says don’t be out too late, take care of yourselves. How often do we call our parents to ask them if they are well?”
With Sholay completing 40 years, Abhishek sheepishly admitted he didn’t remember watching it since he was in his ‘mother’s womb.’
“My mother was carrying me when Sholay released, so I have my own contribution to the film,” Junior B jokingly stated.
The first look of his wife Aishwarya’s Jazbaa will be out this Independence Day. Ash plays a lawyer in the gritty thriller. A proud Abhishek said, “The movie is looking great and I was happy to see Aishwarya and Sanjay Gupta step out of their comfort zone. The missus has done a tremendous job.”
And if you have been wondering why his kabaddi team is called the Pink Panthers, Abhishek told us the reason.
The actor revealed that in his childhood days, his father addressed him as ‘Tiger’ and he would often retort back saying, ‘Yes, Panther.’ Pink is his daughter Aaradhya’s favourite colour and also the name of a film, Pink Panther 2, in which Ash acted.
So there you have it – the Pro Kabbadi league’s Pink Panther with blue eyes.
Talk about keeping it in the family.
