We all have grown up with some weird nicknames that we try to hide from the world, especially from our friends. We all know those nicknames can embarrass us, however, it doesn’t deny the fact that the weird the nickname, the more the love is! And when you don’t have any nickname, you surely feel left out as it adds a personal touch to the conversation. While for the world, Amitabh Bachchan is Big B and Abhishek Bachchan is Junior B, the father-son duo has some really cool nicknames for each other.

If you look at Abhishek Bachchan, his personality, height, looks, voice and everything about him would make you feel that he is an exact replica of his father, Amitabh Bachchan. However, not just the genes, the father-son duo also share a friendly bond. In an interview with a media portal, Big B had talked about how the two share a friendly bond and also borrow clothes and shoes from each other. He had shared that they both are friends as he had decided that the moment junior B starts borrowing his shoes, he would consider him his friend. And that is how they had become friends, who borrow each other’s clothes. And as they say, your friends are bound to give you some crazy nicknames. Same is the case with Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan as they have some cute nicknames for each other.
Abhishek Bachchan owns a Kabbadi team named, Jaipur Pink Panthers. Soon the journey of the team will be shown as a docu-series on The Amazon Prime and in a press conference, Abhishek revealed how his team’s name has a personal connect with his father, Amitabh Bachchan, his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan. Narrating the personal connect with the family, junior B revealed the nicknames the father-son duo have for each other as he recalled a childhood incidence. Abhishek narrated, “Whatever work I do in life, I feel it should have a personal connect. When I was little, my father used to call me out saying ‘Tiger’ then after a few years I thought even I should call him something as an answer. One day when he came back home from shooting, he asked me ‘How are you tiger? I replied,’ I am fine Panther. How are you?’ and I was 4-5 years old then. Since then it became like a fun thing, he used to call me Tiger, I used to call him Panther. If there was an animal that we wanted to choose, I was sure that it was Panther because that is how I used to call my father.”
Further, he shared how his wife, Aishwarya and daughter, Aaradhya have a connect with his team’s name. Sharing that Jaipur is the city where, he and Aishwarya had met and Pink being his daughter’s favourite colour, he said, “So I thought that Pink and Panther would be nice. My wife Aishwarya has worked in the film Pink Panther 2 with Steve Martin, so that’s a connect to Aishwarya. Jaipur was the city, Aishwarya and I came together in, so that’s why Jaipur. If you see, our Pink Panther has blue-green eyes which are the same as my wife’s. So there is a personal connect to everything about Jaipur Pink Panthers.” (Don't Miss: Ayushmann Khurrana Calls His Father-In-Law 'Most Handsome' On His Birthday, And We Can't Argue That)
Abhishek and Big B work as a team and they are always there for each other. When the father-son due had tested positive for COVID-19, a troll had tried to mess with their relationship, however, Abhishek came out to be more savage, schooling the user. A Twitter user had asked Abhishek, “Your father admitted in hospital... Ab kiske bharose baith ke khaoge?” He had immediately came up with a savage reply as he had written, “Filhaal toh let ke kha rahe hain dono ek sath hospital mein” in Hindi. Soon, the user had replied saying, “Get well soon sir... Har kisi ki kismat me let ke khana kaha...” Abhishek had also replied to this tweet and had wished for her healthy life. Abhishek had written, “I pray that you are never in a situation like ours and that you remain safe and healthy. Thank you for your wishes, ma’am.” (Recommended Read: Twinkle Khanna Trolls Her Mother, Dimple Kapadia's Cooking Skills By Praising Her Acting Prowess)
