Abhishek Bachchan is known for his impromptu humour and crisp answers. In a small tete-a-tete, the actor talks about being compared to his father, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, his upcoming films and working with Khans... Read on...

Ask him if he aims to achieve stardom like his actor-father Amitabh Bachchan and pat comes the reply, ''I think life mein aukat mein rehna chahiye. You know, one should aim for Mars and forget about reaching the Sun. That's just not going to happen. It's the same with him. He is the biggest that was, is and will ever be. So don't aspire to be that because that's not going to happen. Aspire to be your own self and achieve your own goals.''

On probing further whether he sees himself working as hard as his father, a few years down the line, Abhishek retorts, ''I really pray that I am doing exactly the same thing. Yeah, I really do. I can't see my life without taking the opportunity to do films. I do hope that I am blessed enough that when I am at his age, I would get to do the films that he does.''

So do we see them working together anytime soon? ''The last film that we did was PAA I think... 2009 that was and since then we haven't got anything that has excited both of us at all. We have done some very memorable films like BUNTY AUR BABLI, SARKAAR, SARKAAR RAJ, KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA etc. So now we need to do something that is bigger and better than these. So until we find something like that, I don't think that is happening anytime soon. We will not do a movie just because it is the two of us. But yes, I must confess that he is a lucky co-star for me,'' admits Bachchan Jr.

Talking about his forthcoming films HAPPY NEW YEAR and ALL IS WELL (earlier titled MERE APNE), Abhishek elaborates, ''HAPPY NEW YEAR is Farah Khan's film and it is fun working with Shahrukh Khan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani, Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, Vivaan Shah... each and everybody. And I am working simultaneously with Umesh Shukla's ALL IS WELL. I am working with my favourite actor - Chintu Uncle (Rishi Kapoor) so I am excited about that and it is a multi-starrer film. I think we should be getting done by June-July.''

Bachchan also clarified over the status to DOSTANA sequel and said, ''Status of DOSTANA 2...well it is a very good question. Please let me know. We are all waiting. I don't know. I haven't heard the script. I really don't know what to say.''

And what about SARKAR 3? ''You know Ram Gopal Varma and I spoke about it. We were very keen. I loved SARKAR as a script and a franchise and we would love to take it further... But we have to get a right story,'' states Abhishek.


Now that he has worked with the biggest superstars including father Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan, ask him to share his observation about them and he reveals, ''There is just one quality which is common in all of them. There is one common thread - their humility and enthusiasm towards their work, which is very important. When they are working they are not the stars that they are off-set. Off-set they are the big stars and they carry themselves the way they want to. On-set it is just about making the best film they want to. And that's infectious and it is so refreshing.''

He adds on a concluding note, ''So when you work with senior actors, you maintain that respect. But when you see them working just like a normal actor to make their film work right, it is very heartening.''
