Why does Amitabh Bachchan feel bad for beta Abhishek?

Abhishek Bachchan’s latest release Bol Bachchan has not only given a much-needed boost to his dipping film career and raised his confidence as an actor, but has also helped him enter the Rs 100 crore club. In spite of this, why is dearest Daddy Amitabh nervous and worried for his son?

AB junior wasn’t really blessed with a red carpet welcome with his debut film Refugee, and hasn’t been a critics’ favourite either since then, in spite of notable performances in Yuva, Sarkar and Guru. Like his now-legendary father, who had to face almost a dozen flops before he could strike it big with Prakash Mehra’s Zanjeer, Abhishek too had to chart the same route before he hit the bullseye with Mani Ratnam’s Yuva. Though for both Bachchans the initial struggle has been the same, what happened to them after their first big hit is well known. While Amitabh established himself as a superstar and gradually went on to become the top actor of the millennium, Junior B is still trying to match his father’s success even in its nascent stages.

Unlike other star sons, Abhishek has unfortunately hit a maximum number of roadblocks in his career. Naturally, his doting father is extremely concerned about his son’s failure, despite beta’s endless attempts to prove himself with each film. The Shahenshah of Bollywood expressed his concern for his son’s career course, saying that it upsets and hurts him to see that luck isn’t favouring Abhishek as much as it did him. “As a father, it obviously hurts when you see your child suffering and going through bad times. And so you try hard to do something to avoid it. As an actor, I feel bad for Abhishek at times because he is a very good actor; just that he isn’t getting his due. We don’t really discuss work, but whenever he needs any suggestions or advice, I guide him and support to the best I can.”

When you have a Paa like Amitabh Bachchan, there’s no need to worry, Abhishek. What say, readers?
