Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan is back onscreen with his just-released film Manmarziyaan. While the film failed miserably at the box-office, Junior Bachchan managed to charm the viewers yet again with his phenomenal screen presence and acting. Not just the viewers but Abhishek’s family loved the film as well. However, the actor has declared that he won’t do any film that he thinks his daughter Aaradhya would feel awkward watching.
We all know how much Abhishek and Aishwarya love their little daughter Aaradhya. This doesn’t come as a surprise that dotting father Abhishek wants to chose his next project keeping his daughter in mind. Abhishek has said in a statement, "I will now choose whatever work I do in professional career based on Aaradhya. I would not personally, currently, like to make a film which I feel Aaradhya would feel awkward watching."
The actor was in conversation at Jagran Cinema Summit, on Friday in Mumbai. Talking about what Aaradhya wants to take up as a career in future, Abhishek clarified that both he and wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are very clear that they won't force their daughter to pick a profession of their choice and would stand by her decision irrespectively.
"As far as Aishwarya and I are concerned, be it tomorrow, twenty years down the line or whenever, whatever she decides, we will support her no matter what. That's what our parents did for us as well. As a parent you want the best for your child. What she decides to do is completely her choice. We will never weigh down on her, that this is what we expect you to do. We would be proud of her regardless of what she becomes," he added.
Junior Bachchan also revealed that he has learnt to not bring home work from his parents. "Dad never brought his work home. The first time I saw my father come home in a costume was when he was shooting 'Insaniyat' and he came home for lunch dressed as a police inspector. Otherwise, we never grew up like a typical film industry kids. None of the film magazines were allowed in the house. There was a press ban going in at that time with my father. We, for many years, didn't even know the concept of a film industry. It was our normal life."
Talking about his own childhood, Abhishek revealed that stardom was always a part of his life because of his famous parents. On the work front, Abhishek will be next seen in Gulab Jamun alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. They will be seen together onscreen after Raavan and will start shooting for the film next year.
