Abhishek Bachchan: Remakes not a trend, but creative choice

As Abhishek prepares to become ‘the’ robber in his upcoming Players, he shares his quirky views on remakes and social networking sites

Brand new daddy, Abhishek, is gearing up for the release of Players. And while at it, the actor feels that remakes are more of a creative choice than just a trend. “Players is the official remake of Italian Job. The story is the same, but the screenplay is completely different because you have to make it for the Indian audience,” Abhishek said. “I don’t think there is any trend. We make a thousand films a year and, out of this, may be four or five are remakes. I think it is more of a creative choice than following a trend. When Abbas-Mustan saw Italian Job, they felt they want to make this for the Indian audience,” he added. Nowadays, social networking sites are becoming a prominent platform for actors and filmmakers for promoting their films, but Abhishek doesn’t seem to be in favour of it. “Social networking isn’t just for promotions. It is a platform to exchange ideas and interact with our fans. A little bit of promotion is fine but I don’t think promoting the whole film is advisable,” said the actor. Well AB baby, while we figure out your complicated equation with social networking site, we hope it works for your upcoming movie.
