Junior Bachchan has always proved his mettle with every film that he was a part of. Be it Guru, Bluffmaster or even the Dhoom franchise, Abhishek was loved by his fans in every film he did. The actor disappeared from the screen suddenly and now he broke his two-year-long break from films by signing Anurag Kashyap’s Manamarziyaan.
The last 2 years have been difficult for Abhishek as he was not a part of even a single movie project. We saw Abhishek last in Sajid-Farhad’s 2016 comedy movie Housefull.
Recently during an interview with Anupama Chopra, Abhishek revealed what was his family’s reaction when he told them that he needs a break from work. Abhishek said that his wife Aishwarya was supportive and fine with the idea but his parents, Amitabh and Jaya were a bit concerned.
''I didn’t say I don’t wanna be an actor anymore, I just said I need to change the kind of films I am doing. It took two years for me to get the right film, that I perceived to be the right film... How was it on the family? I spoke to them, I told them and they were very supportive... They were okay with it. I think somewhere they were like ‘Okay, one year has gone by, what is this guy doing? I think that’s a parental instinct. My wife was fine because I walk my family through everything I do so they are on the same page,'' the actor said.
During another Interview with PTI, Abhishek said,
“I just wanted to re-evaluate where I was in life, wanted to re-energise myself. There was a definite complacency that had come into my work and I wanted to change that. It is not just about this industry, life in general, it is about out of sight, out of mind. Initially, it was a thought that I had. But I was very confident that it would not become an issue.”
Abhishek said that he wanted to do something different and also wanted to change his approach towards films,
“I have worked very hard on all the films I have done. I have loved all the films that I have done and I have enjoyed every one of them. (But) I felt my personal approach needed to change.”
After Manmarziyaan, Abhishek will be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s next project Gulab Jamun. Also, we are glad that he took that break and now he is back with a bang. AB, good luck and we missed you.
