There was a time when the Bachchan family had to face severe financial crisis in the 90s. Amitabh Bachchan was really going through a rough time when his company ABCL incurred huge losses. And Abhishek Bachchan has now revealed that he had to drop out from his college to help his father during his financial crisis. The Big Bull actor also said that though he wasn't qualified enough to help Big B in any way, as a son he felt he should be around his father during his tough time.
"Well, truth be told, I left university -- I was studying in Boston University. I had declared my major as liberal arts, and then I majored in performing arts. And I left my education because my father was going through this really rough time, financially. He had started this business called ABCL," Abhishek told YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia during his poscast.
He further added, "I don't think I was qualified to help him in any which way, but I just felt that as a son, I needed to be around my father, and help in whatever way. So I left my college and came back. I started helping him in his company."
Recalling an incident when Amitabh Bachchan had walked up to Yash Chopra's house asking for work. Abhishek said that his father told him that his films or business nothing is working out. Big B then decided to revive his acting career and went to Yash Chopra's house and told him, "Look, I don't have a job, nobody is giving me work anymore, my movies aren't working, and I've come to ask you to please give me a film to work in."
During that time, Amitabh Bachchan was offered Mohabbatein and he also made his debut on television as a host on Kaun Banega Crorepati. Both projects went on become stellar hits and the rest is history.
