Abhishek Bachchan has been talking freely about his new movie Delhi 6. It looks like it’s turning out to be one of the most interesting movies of the new year and also marks the re-emergence of Sonam Kapoor onto the scene. Abhi, who plays the part of a US-educated man who returns to India with his grandmother, has been talking about how closely he associates with his role. “I spent the majority of my childhood at boarding school abroad so I related to the part,” he explains, “I know what it feels like to be an outsider in one’s own country. The film shows India the way it is. It’s not something that you see in the magazines or in the news. It’s much more enchanting. It’s functioning chaos. One line that appeals to me in the script is when my character is debating whether to go back to New York or not and he says, ‘One of the reasons I like this place is that India works. The people make it work. You can’t explain why it works, but it does.’”

Abhi is also currently making the film Ravana with his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – an experience he is enjoying very much. “It’s great fun being married to Ash,” he states, “I have done several films with her and always enjoyed working with her. I did my second film with her after we got married and it’s nice to get home and have your wife there. There is no tension. Her being an actor helps because she understands what the requirements are of an actor on set. And yes, she does look like that first thing in the morning! I’m always asked if she has a bad day and the answer is always, ‘No, she doesn’t.’”

Abhi’s co-star in Delhi 6, Sonam Kapoor, has in turn been speaking very highly of him. “I think Abhishek is a wonderful guy. I really love him,” she says, “He has such a handsome and charming personality. It’s a real pleasure to be with him on the sets of a film. I am working with him for the first time and it’s a wonderful experience.”
