Abhishek Bachchan has come a long way since his debut in Refugee in 2000 opposite Kareena Kapoor. The Yuva actor in his 20-year career has delivered some memorable performances. n a new interview, Abhishek Bachchan revealed that he felt he wasn't made for the industry after a string of flops and continuous negative response for his acting. He revealed that he confided in his dad, Amitabh Bachchan. It was then that Big B offered him a piece of advice that encouraged Abhishek to stay. He said, “To fail on a public platform is very difficult. There was no social media back then, but I read via media that some were abusing me while some said that I do not know acting. At one point in time, I felt it was my mistake that I came into the industry as whatsoever I was trying, it was not working. I went to my dad and said maybe I am not made for this industry.”
Abhishek then went on to say what Amitabh Bachchan advised him. Big B said, “I never brought you up to be quitter. Every morning you have to wake up and fight for your place under the sun. As an actor, you are improving with every film.” Abhishek revealed that Amitabh further advised him to take up every role coming his way and just concentrate on working. “Just work and trust me you will be fine,” Amitabh had told Abhishek.
Abhishek was recently seen in The Big Bull, based on stockbroker Harshad Mehta's financial scam of 1992. Following the release, Amitabh took to his blog and shared his experience of watching it. "For a Father it is ever a moment of great pride to see their ‘progress report’ prosper and do well .. I am no different from any other Father .. the mention of such always brings emotion and tears .. particularly when there is an exhibition of immense value .. So despite the fact that Big Bull had been seen privately within the confines of the home much earlier, the excitement of watching it when the entire world shall be seeing it at the same time, was different," he said. The Big Bull is streaming on Disney+Hostar. Directed by Kookie Gulati, the film also stars Ileana D'Cruz, Sohum Shah and Nikita Dutta in pivotal roles. Abhishek has a couple of projects in the pipeline. This includes Bob Biswas and Dasvi. The actor has been shooting for the latter since February this year.
