Abhishek Bachchan owns a Kabbadi team named, Jaipur Pink Panthers. Once, in a press conference, Abhishek had revealed how his team’s name has a personal connect with his father, Amitabh Bachchan. Narrating the personal connection with the family, junior B had revealed the nicknames the father-son duo have for each other as he had recalled a childhood incidence. Abhishek had said, “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.”
On June 27, 2020, Amitabh ji had taken to his Instagram handle and had posted a rare picture with the boys of the Bachchan family. In the picture, we could see Amitabh ji with his son, Abhishek and his daughter, Shweta Bachchan Nanda's son, Agastya Nanda.
