Things are not going well for Abhishek Bachchan. Like we reported the other day in an interview that he did, he mentioned how he has to be strong to go through a strong phase. His last film was a success at the box office, but mostly because it was ‘Housefull 3’, which was already a successful franchise. It has been a long time since he got himself a solo hit, but he seems to be better off in supporting roles alongside other stars. Recently, Abhishek celebrated 10 years of ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’. Those were the days when Karan Johar considered him worthy of being cast in his films because Abhi was a hit then. Unfortunately, it was not a smooth ride for Abhi, whose films started flopping one after the other. It’s very strange that he’s speaking about ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’. Don’t get us wrong, it does look like he wants to work with KJo again. Sadly, KJo himself is floating in deep waters and he’s too busy trying to hand out life boats to his kids aka star kids + Sidarth Malhotra. Anyways, we do believe that KJo don’t like Abhi that much as he once claimed Abhi used to bully him when he was a kid. We are just wondering whether it was that bad or just normal kids banter. Only KJo can tell! Nevertheless, check out what Abhi posted in his own words about ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’.
Abhishek Bachchan Interview
Abhishek Bachchan on working on ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’
“Can’t believe it’s been 10 yrs since the release of KANK. Such a memorable film for me and very important too. I remember sitting in a preview theatre and watching Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and thinking…. He may be my childhood friend, He’s like my elder brother, I really bully him, he allows me to get away with it. But how do I tell him that he just became one of my favourite directors!! How do I convince him to give me an opportunity to work with him?
I remember going on the sets of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and being overwhelmed and over-awed by the sheer magnitude of his vision and saying quietly to myself…”Some day, Abhishek, some day… Just work hard enough and earn his attention”. I still remember, I was at the success party for Dhoom when he told me that “a big overseas director” wanted to come offer me a film tomorrow. The next day, at the given time @karanjohar walked in with his LV bag and sat quietly. After 20 mins of polite conversation I said ” KJ, so is this guy ever gonna show up? ” to which he replied ” I’ve been sitting here for 20 minutes!!!” I’ll never forget that moment. Never! It dawned on me that after all these years of hoping and wishing Karan had finally offered me a film he was going to direct. I suddenly became very emotional and hugged him. And promised him that I would not let him down, that I would give it my all. I hope I lived up to my promise to him. Thank you Karan for trusting me with the character of Rishi. Thank you Pa, @iamsrk Rani @realpz for your endless patience and guidance throughout the film. The entire crew and cast for providing me with such a great experience. I believe that you should do films that when you sit back and reminisce, that memory should bring a smile to your lips and a tear of joy to your eyes and your heart should glow! KANK is definitely one of those memories.
