After lying low for a while, Abhishek Bachchan is back in the public domain. This time for his upcoming films that will make him one of the busiest stars in town this calendar.
The actor is gung ho about his forthcoming films. Abhishek, who came under heavy criticism after the release of his last two films - RAAVAN and KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY, has moved beyond those harsh words. Says he, "For me, the excitement of doing RAAVAN and KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY was primarily more to do with getting the opportunity to work with two of the most celebrated directors of our generation. One was Mani Ratnam, who is family for me and this one's my third film with him. Then it was the opportunity to work with someone like Ashutosh Gowariker for whom I have immense respect. That was primarily what attracted me to do these two films."
Abhishek also admits that he is not insecure as an actor. The presence of other competitors in the frame never bothers Abhi. In his words, "I am very confident of what I do. I am not insecure about another actor in the frame with me because I have the confidence to hold my own in front of that person regardless of who that person is. Secondly, I am not the actor who goes around cutting other people's roles. If you know what the script is and the demands of the film are and if you have a problem with that then don't do the film or ask the person to change things before you start the film. But once you are on the set, it is absolutely wrong to go about changing the scene or win over a scene or editing people out or whatever it is that people are accused of."
Some of Abhishek's forthcoming films include Rohan Sippy's film, DUM MARO DUM, which is an action thriller. PLAYERS with Abbas-Mustan, Rohit Shetty's BOL BACHCHAN, DOSTANA 2 and HERA PHERI 4, making this calendar an action packed one for Jr Bachchan.
