Abhishek Bachchan had tested negative for COVID-19 and had returned home after almost a month in isolation on August 8, 2020. He is doing perfectly fine now and had even attended filmmaker, JP Dutta's daughter, Nidhi Dutta's engagement ceremony a few days ago. Check out the pictures from the same below:
In an interaction with the Hindustan Times, Abhishek Bachchan talked about his frame of mind post-Covid-19, and how his family helped him. He said, "I am fine, thank you for asking. Ready to get back to work. The love, affection, concern and prayers of our family, friends and well wishers (helped). (I) listened to what the doctors and medical staff instructed me to do and be a good patient."
Abhishek Bachchan has a number of films releasing on OTT now, including his forthcoming film, The Big Bull. Talking about the change in the dynamics of the Indian cinema, he said, "Well, one possible change, and dare I say a good one, could possibly be that it would lay more importance on whether the actor is able to essay the role or not? Are they suited for the role and not just their box-office standing or pulling power? Having said that, there are many films that we make that require a 'Star' to be in them, the format and requirement of the film is such. It is a completely different school of acting. And I believe, a lot more demanding and difficult." (Also Read: Sunny Leone And Daughter, Nisha Kaur Weber Channel Their Inner Artists And Make A Painting Together)
Abhishek Bachchan also talked about having been a part of the industry for twenty years and said, "Contrary to popular belief, commercial film acting is not easy at all. To, convincingly and with utmost conviction do some of the things' commercial cinema' demands is immensely challenging. But, now without the box-office barometer, directors and producers will possible cast a film on the merits of the script and its requirements in terms of casting. An actor's life will still be decided every Friday. They will still be required to deliver -either at the box-office or deliver in terms of performance. At the end of the day, the audience will still decide and they are the final word!"
To celebrate her brother, Abhishek Bachchan's homecoming, Shweta Bachchan Nanda had shared an unseen childhood picture of him on her IG handle with an array of heart emojis. Abhishek had looked utterly cute in his childhood picture, riding a toy tractor. Shweta's son, Agastya had made a comment related to mamu's movie, Dhoom to welcome him home. His comment could be read as "Dhoom Dhoom", to which his mother had savagely replied, "A little bit of originality please." Abhishek too had commented on the post as "Love you".
