Paa’s success is acting like more of an incentive to one of the most dynamic movie producers, Abhishek Bachchan (Yes, Junior Bachchan), who produced Paa under the banner of Amitabh Bachchan Corporate Ltd. Paa recovered its cost within two days of its release and if Abhishek is to be believed then ‘extra cautiousness’ worked for him and he plans to be more cautious in the future. The success has inspired ABCL to take a step further and cast the entire Bachchan clan in one single movie.
His experience in Paa allowed Abhishek to finally ‘grow up’, and he has said, “Most definitely, we are coming together. All four of us are completely for it. We need to sort out certain variables. The scripts that we had been given didn’t justify our collective presence. Each individual of the family has to be willing to be part of the film. All four of us are unique actors. It’s very difficult for any script to please collectively.”
Though he’s all praises for his father, Abhishek is worried about Big B’s health because of his workload. He said that after doing five films with his father, considering the authority he has, he said that what the audience has seen of his work is ‘just the tip of the iceberg’. Abhishek is planning to do a comedy with his father before the entire Bachchan parivar comes together on screen.
Abhishek had just two releases this year. Other than Paa, he was seen in Delhi 6. But he is all set to take Bollywood by storm in the year 2010 with as many as seven releases. This fine actor just finished shooting for Mani Ratnam’s Ravana and Ashutosh Gowariker’s period flick Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se. He is also doing Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s untitled projects along with Rohan Sippy’s Dostana 2. Once he is done with these, he will start working on Abbas — Mastan’s remake of The Italian Job and Neeraj Pandey’s Special Chabbhis.
Bachchan Bahu will be seen in Action Replay and Guzaarish and as far as Big B is concerned, he will start the year with Rann, followed by Teen Patti, The Actor, Shoebite and Buddha. The flick with the Bachchan parivar will just be the icing on the cake for people who always craved for movies starring the members of the Bachchan family.
