This Friday's upcoming release, PAA, is Abhishek Bachchan's fifth film with his father Amitabh Bachchan and it is 'the' film that they chose to re-launch their company AB Corp.
However, many will be surprised to know that when Abhishek was first offered PAA, he did not find the film exciting at all and asked the director Balki to come up with something unique, as felt that the concept of father son relationship had been explored numerous times in the Hindi film industry and there was nothing novel about it. So what was it that made Abhishek sign on the dotted line? Please read on.
Naturally the script! When Abhishek heard the whole script he was simply amazed and he realized that this was not an ordinary father-son relationship that Balki was talking about. The idea of playing father to his own Papa was not only unique but challenging, something that has never been attempted on the screen in Bollywood before. Moreover, he had faith in Balki after the excellent manner in which he had tackled a difficult subject in CHEENI KUM.
The much awaited Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan starrer, PAA, is all set to hit 700 plus screens worldwide, this Friday.
