His note could be read as "When he not just wears your shoes, but also shares the same number of chairs to sit on... then he is not just a Son, but your dearest friend!"
On January 13, 2020, Amit ji took to his IG handle and posted a gem of a memory with his son, Abhishek Bachchan. In the picture, a young Abhishek Bachchan can be seen sitting in his father's lap. Along with the picture, Amit ji recalled the time when Abhishek gave his first autograph and wrote, "Tashkent, Soviet Union .. 1900's.. where he signed his first autograph. Abhishek."
In an interview with the IANS, Abhishek Bachchan had revealed how his father, Amitabh Bachchan had never produced any films for him. On the contrary, he had also shared that it was him, who had produced R Balki's Paa, starring his father in the main lead and him in the supporting role.

During the promotions of Breathe: Into The Shadows, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Abhishek Bachchan was asked what it feels like being the son of legendary actors, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. He had said, "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. 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. 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."

He had stated, "It's very difficult. I have never said this, but it is. Because apart from being a co-star, a son, I'm also his biggest fan. And I genuinely say that. From the bottom of my heart, I believe that he is the greatest actor on earth." (Don't Miss: Raj Kundra Wishes To Have Married A Village Girl, Turns His Wife Shilpa Shetty Into A 'Gaon Ki Gori')
