Abhishek, who is also the producer of SHAMITABH, was present at an event when he was asked how excited he is about senior Bachchan’s commentary during the World Cup. He said: ”I think it’s a great concept and that’s the least you can expect from R. Balki (SHAMITABH director R. Balakrishnan). When we had this discussion in the marketing meetings, I thought it was a brilliant concept.”

The junior Bachchan says his globally known father has ‘the greatest voice on earth’.
