Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan is one such star kid who has delivered some memorable performances in his career, but still he did have his share of failures as well. The actor recently opened up and confessed that there was a point in his life when he almost gave up on his Bollywood journey.
In a recent interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, actor Abhishek Bachchan revealed that at one time he felt like he wasn’t made for the industry but his father Amitabh Bachchan’s advice encouraged him to stay.
Junior Bachchan 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.”
He further said, “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 recalled Amitabh’s words that 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.”
Senior Bachchan further motivated him to take up every role coming his way and just focus on working.
Abhishek, who made his debut in 2000 with the film Refugee, was last seen in ‘The Big Bull’ which was based on stockbroker Harshad Mehta’s financial scam of 1992. The movie released on 8th April on Disney+ Hotstar and received mixed reviews from the audience. Abhishek’s film had the actor’s father writing a blog on the film and how Abhishek made his proud.
Amitabh wrote on his blog, “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.”
Abhishek has a couple of projects in the pipeline which includes Bob Biswas and Dasvi.
