Abhishek Bachchan, the heir of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, has had a long career of 16-years.
The actor has been part of many multi-starred and solo films. He was recently seen in another multi starer ‘Housefull 3.’ He said that he doesn’t understand why people differentiate solo films and multi-starers as both are just films.
“I don’t get it why people ask me why do I not do solo films? This is a concept I don’t understand because for people a solo film has just one actor. I think it’s incorrect not to recognize other individuals who are part of the film,” he wondered.
To explain his point further, Abhishek took the example of his Mani Ratnam directed solo hit film Guru (2007) and said, ‘In Guru, there was Mithun Chakraborty, Madhavan, Aishwarya Rai, Vidya Balan and many other actors. There were a host of other accomplished actors. How can it be called a solo Abhishek Bachchan film?”
“Each individual has their own approach and perspective to their career and their work. For me, it has always been a learning experience. I can’t guarantee the success of a film, but I can only give it my best. The limelight is shared in multi-starers but if it is shared, then I can also carry a heavier burden. The pros are the pressure not entirely on us. If you are secure in your capability then everything is fine,” added Bachchan Jr.
