Bachchan unplugged like never before. With Manmarziyaan round the corner, he is
on cloud nine and in a mood to talk. We caight up with him at Film City, last
week. This man's attention span is to be seen to be believed, If he is talking
to you, he is talking to only you- and not looking around here and there. Tell
him that, and he says, "But isn't that how it is supposed to be?"
True Abhishek, but how many of us are like you? we are so easily distracted and
the less said about our attention spans, the better. Blame it on our
cellphones, what else! But where is Abhishek's cellphone? God knows! If it is
in his pocket, he didn't withdraw it at least until we were with him.
The conversation began with: where has he been? why do we see so little of him these days? Where was he for the last two years? Is he being choosy or getting fewer films? Has He Been Unfairly Compared To His Dad? Has His Surname Come In His Way? Has Bollywood given him his due? He did not bat an eyelid at these questions, which we thought might make him a tad uncomfortable. He looked into our eyes and answered, there was honesty and intent,yet there was softness (SEE THE VIDEO BELOW).
We also went on
to ask him about what he feels about the paparazzi which swoops down on
celebrities at the first opportunity. We also asked him what he feels
about today's media- there was one wrong story in a section of the media
recently which said that Abhishek had a fight with his wife, Aishwarya Rai.
Lekin aisa kuch hua hi nahi tha, and classy and subtle manner. Abhishek did get
upset about it.
And then we all know, how Abhishek has been a champion in giving it back to trolls but in a classy and subtle manner. So yeah, he spoke about the social media as well.
As for Manmarziyyan, Abhishek describes the whole journey and tells us what excited him the most to sign up for it. And there's a lot more why this EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW is a DO NOT MISS. Click on the above video and put your feet up to see the engaging conversation.
