Abhishek Bachchan Reveals Why He Feels Panicked After Being Praised By Father, Amitabh Bachchan

Son of superstars, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek had made his Bollywood debut in 2000 with JP Dutta’s war film, Refugee. With movies like YuvaSarkar, and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, he is the only actor after Dilip Kumar to have won three Filmfare awards consecutively.

From the beginning of his career, Abhishek Bachchan was constantly compared with his superstar father, Amitabh Bachchan. And the doting father never misses a chance to express how proud he feels about his son. As Abhishek's upcoming film, Bob Biswas' trailer got released recently, Amitabh couldn't contain his happiness over the same.

In an interview with Mid-Day, Abhishek revealed he was overwhelmed to see his father, Amitabh Bachchan's response to the trailer of his film. Revealing his feelings about the same, Abhishek said:

"I was bowled over and overwhelmed, and I continue to be. I’m his son and his biggest fan. To get your idol to recognise your work, to see your work is a huge compliment in itself. Let alone if you do good work and he thinks you’ve done good work."

Abhishek further retorted that he wishes the film to work well as he doesn't want his father's hopes to come crashing down. In his words:

"The fact that he saw the trailer and felt the need to write something about it, is humbling. I’m panicking now because I want the film to be even better because he’s got certain hopes now, and you don’t want his hopes to come crashing down.”

On February 5, 2021, Abhishek had turned a year older, and his father, Amitabh Bachchan had penned an adorable note while sharing a thoughtful picture. He had posted a picture collage, in which, on one side, there was a monochrome picture, wherein he was holding his son's hand. On the other side, there was Abhishek, who was leading his daddy, Amitabh. Alongside the picture, Amitabh Bachchan had written:

"I lead him once holding his hand... he leads me now holding my hand."

On Koffee With Karan season 6, Karan Johar had asked Abhishek Bachchan about what it is like to live under the constant pressure and expectations that come from being Amitabh Bachchan’s son. To this, Junior B had replied, “It’s very difficult Karan. I’ve never said this, but it is.” Abhishek had further added that he does seek validation from his father, but often, he finds himself unable to react on rare occasions when he says good things about his performances.
