Abhishek Bachchan Reflects On How It Feels To Be The Son Of A Cinema Legend Like Amitabh Bachchan

Every good thing in this world comes up with a price tag and with a lot of pressure. For instance, let’s look at the life of the talented actor, Abhishek Bachchan, who is far more successful in comparison to a lot of star kids of his time. But just because his father, Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most prominent and incredible names in the history of Indian cinema, his success often gets minimised quite unfairly. Over the years, we have seen him struggling with the tag of 'The son of Bollywood's Shehanshah, Amitabh Bachchan’ and being pressurised for not catching up with his father’s success.

However, the actor had revealed a lot of times that he’s not bothered by it because for him, what matters the most is his father’s love for him. In his recent interview, the actor was asked this question again, and he revealed it all this time quite clearly. Please scroll down to read it!

In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Abhishek Bachchan was promoting the upcoming season 2 of the popular web series, Breathe, with which he’s making his OTT debut. When asked what it feels like to be the son of Bollywood legend, Amitabh Bachchan and was it tough for him, the actor took some time before answering it and explained, “I’ve never thought about it. I’m the son of my father. At home, he’s that, he has never wanted it to be anything else, my mother never allowed it to be anything else. I’m the son of my father, I’m a colleague of a legend. That’s the way I look at it.” (Don’t Miss: Karan Patel Reacts To His Wife, Ankita Bhargava's Post On Going Through The Pain Of Miscarriage)

Going further, junior Bachchan has also revealed that the equation that he shares with his father at home is the reason why he respects and loves him to the core of his heart. Abhishek said, “He never brings his work home, never imposes, what I believe as a fan rightly should be, the fact he’s a living legend of cinema. At home, he’s my friend, somebody I can sit with, watch sports or movies, discuss politics and current affairs. I think it’s very important to understand that dynamic, which I understand is very difficult to comprehend when you’re not living that and viewing it as a third person.”

In the end, Abhishek Bachchan has also highlighted the point that he’s grateful and feels blessed to be the son of such great parents and actors. He said, “I’ve never looked upon it adversely. My love and respect for my parents are far too big for me to ever think to disrespect that emotion by thinking about it adversely.” For the uninitiated, Amitabh Bachchan had tied the knot with Jaya Bhaduri on June 3, 1973, and a year after, the duo became parents to an adorable baby girl, whom they had named Shweta Bachchan. On February 5, 1976, the family of three became four when Abhishek Bachchan had entered into their world.
