"Shahrukh Is A Dear Friend": Abhishek Bachchan

"You never knocked me down, you could never knock me down," said Abhishek Bachchan in an interview a short while back quoting from 'Raging Bull'. I had a long chat with Abhishek on the success of Bol Bachchan and how it feels to ride the crest of Box Office success. Abhishek spoke on how he maintains his sense of humour, why he is not averse to criticism and how he'd like to learn from it constructively. He says its not the films that fail, it is the budgets that go wrong. Aamir has already begun his shooting for Dhoom 3. Abhishek, Uday and Aamir have been doing joint readings. They are heading to Chicago in USA in the first week of August for the shooting to commence. Farah had narrated the script of Happy New Year to Abhishek a long time back but he hasn't been approached in the recent times for the film. Yes, he'd love to work with Shahrukh whom he considers a "dear friend" if the role is offered and if all goes well with the script. His game plan is to do one film at a time. It is a long interview. There is a lot more in the interview which I wouldn't wish to reveal here. And yes he has lost weight since the Bol Bachchan interview that we did in late June. Sent on my BlackBerry® from Vodafone
