Abhishek Bachchan refused to act with Big B
Abhishek Bachchan was recently approached by Soojit Sircar to play the role of a young Big B in an upcoming movie. Despite liking the script, Abhishek, surprisingly, turned it down. The role had the younger Bachchan play a 40-year old in the first half. Following a 20-year leap, Amitabh was to take over.
Abhishek didn’t want to do a role insubstantial in comparison with that of his father.
The role then went to Kunal Kapoor for his apparent resemblance to the Big B. He too had similar reservations. Consequently, it came to Amitabh himself. Now, the megastar will play both roles. Had Abhishek agreed, this could have been a huge casting coup.
