Bachchan (inset) is a once-in-a-life­time phe­nom­e­non, and that no one should as­pire to achieve his star­dom.

In a ca­reer span­ning over four decades, Big B has de­liv­ered power-packed per­for­mances in block­busters like Dee­war (1975), Sho­lay (1975), Don (1978), Na­mak Halal (1982), Bagh­ban (2003) and Paa (2009). The 72-yearold has also been hon­oured with Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vib­hushan for his con­tri­bu­tion in the field of arts. “I do not as­pire to achieve the su­per-star­dom that my fa­ther has achieved. No­body can or should, as it is not achiev­able. He is like the sun ... Make your own mi­nus­cule space un­der the sun,” says Ab­hishek.

Talk­ing about Amitabh’s next — a Be­joy Nam­biar film in which he plays a paral­ysed chess grand­mas­ter — Ab­hishek, 39, said it is in­spir­ing to see his fa­ther rein­vent­ing him­self de­spite be­ing a vet­eran. “I’ve seen the film’s teaser and liked it very much. It is fan­tas­tic. Dad has al­ways done won­der­ful films,” says Abhi, who has com­pleted 15 years in the film in­dus­try, and feels that be­ing a son of a su­per­star does not mat­ter in the long run in Bol­ly­wood. “The au­di­ence de­cides how much they want to see you,” he says.
