Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - PTI

Ab­hishek Bachchan (inset) says that vet­eran ac­tor Rishi Kapoor (left), his costar in a re­cently re­leased film, is not tem­per­a­men­tal, and in­stead, is a fun-lov­ing per­son. “Tem­per­a­ment ... no not at all. I have known him all my life and I have done two films with him. He is never like that. He is the op­po­site of that ... he is very en­ter­tain­ing, he is great plea­sure to be around. He is full of life,” Ab­hishek says.

“I have never heard any­one com­plain about his tem­per­a­ment. It is an as­set to have him on the sets,” he adds.

Rishi and Ab­hishek fea­ture as fa­ther-son in the film. On his equa­tion with his real-life fa­ther, megas­tar Amitabh Bachchan, the 39-year-old says, “My equa­tion hasn’t changed. We are as friendly as be­fore. We don’t have that tra­di­tional baap-beta kind of re­la­tion­ship, we are bud­dies and have al­ways been like that.”

In the film, Ab­hishek ro­mances Asin, who was ear­lier seen as his sis­ter in Ro­hit Shetty’s 2012 film, Bol Bachchan. “It was great fun work­ing with Asin. She is a friend and I en­joy work­ing with her. She is a fine ac­tor too. Last time, she played my sis­ter (in a film), and now she is paired op­po­site me. We had ac­tors such as Supriyaji (Supriya Pathak), Zee­shan (Mo­hammed Zee­shan Ayyub) and Chintu un­cle (Rishi Kapoor) in film, we had a won­der­ful cast,” Ab­hishek says, adding that his latest film is a fam­ily drama film with a so­cial mes­sage.
