I am my worst critic: Abhishek Bachchan
Mumbai: Abhishek Bachchan who completed 12yrs of film career as hero says, “I think people think I am a much better actor than I actually am. I think I have a lot more to do and improve. I think people are too kind to me”. He thanked people for being generous on him, though he doesn’t deserve to be at such top position.
He adds, “I am very harsh on myself. An actor is always his worst critic. I feel I have been given too much due and I am not shamming by saying this. I genuinely believe that, I feel I have a lot more to do and learn”. Junior B made his debut with J.P. Dutta’s Refugee in 2000 – which got an iffy reception. Since then, he has seen ups and downs in his career with hits like Bunty Aur Babli and Sarkar and flops like Kuch Naa Kaho, Bas Itna Sa Khwaab hai and Players.
On his selection of roles Abhi says, “Be it the biggest director or be it a very good script, but if my heart is not with it, I will not do it”. The actor, who turned 36 this year, is right now looking forward to the release of Bol Bachchan, which is coming out July 6.
Describing his experience, he says matching up to the required “energy level” and “style” of comedy in Bol Bachchan has been an “exhausting” task for him. Speaking about his Bol Bachchan he says, “Everything was a challenge. I thought it will be an easy film to do but it turned out to be the most difficult film of my career. I have done some difficult films in the past as well. But this film was exhausting to do. My misconception was that it is a comedy film, so it will be a holiday, but it wasn’t one. I worked very hard for it,” Loosely based on 1979 film Golmaal, the cast of Bol Bachchan also features Ajay Devgn, Asin Thottumkal and Prachi Desai.
