On taking time off, Abhishek was asked if he took any acting advice from his father, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. He replied, “No, I didn’t. My career and its path is nothing like my father’s and it never will be.”

The 42-year-old actor added, “For once, I thought selfishly and decided to do things my way. It’s not like ‘if someone could do this, so can I’. It was about how I wanted things.”

Abhishek continued that signing Manmarziyaan was the right decision for him in the direction that he wanted to go. He mentioned, “The validation of my decision was what I felt when I stepped on to the set and the response to the trailer.”

    A successful father generally does not have successful sons. Take case of Sachin Tendulkar, Sunl Gavaskar or any celebrity or politician.
    That is true even of people whom we know.

    Very rarely are there such success stories.Recommend
