Can't reach the stardom that dad achieved: Abhishek Bachchan
Being the son of Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan isn't easy for actor Abhishek, who says its unimaginable for him to achieve the heights of stardom that his father has scaled and prefers to chart his own course.
Having starred in over 180 films in a career spanning more than four decades, megastar Amitabh Bachchan continues to hold sway over millions of his fans on the big and small screen.
Even at this ripe age, the 71-year-old is one of the busiest actors in Bollywood thanks to his knack of adapting and reinventing himself to the demands of showbiz.
"One must stay in their limits only. I think one must aim for Mars... forget about reaching the Sun. It is not going to happen. It is the same with him. He is the biggest, was, is and is ever going to be. So don't aspire to be that because it is not going to happen. Aspire to be your own man and achieve your own goals," Abhishek told PTI in an interview here.
Abhishek may not be bracketed in the category of superstars in Bollywood but his performance in films like Yuva, Bunty Aur Babli, Guru and others were highly appreciated.
He believes in doing good work and insists that megastars even like his father cannot guarantee a hit if the story is not good enough.
"If the film is not good and even if you have Mr Amitabh Bachchan in it then also it will not work. I would love to say that (all films that dad does will be hits).. it makes a great copy. But the fact is, if the film is not good, the story is not good then nobody can save your film. So it is important to choose films properly," he added.
