Amitabh Bachchan is a legend who has inspired many Bollywood superstars. Aamir Khan on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan 6 confessed that he’s in awe of the Shehanshah of Bollywood. Young stars emulate the actor and his dialogues and songs have made its way to new movies. Filmmakers often cannot stop gushing about the megastar’s persona and aura. After all there’s only one Big B of Bollywood who stands so tall and his baritone voice can mesmerise anybody. However, for a man who has inspired so many young actors, it seems like he’s the adorable grandpa at home to Shweta Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan’s children. In a recent interview, Abhishek Bachchan revealed that his daughter Aaradhya Bachchan hasn’t watched any of his movies. But the Manmarziyaan hero revealed that his little princess loves this Bollywood song that features his legendary father Amitabh Bachchan, wife Aishwarya Rai and himself – no guesses there – Kajra Re from Bunty Aur Babli.
Abhishek said, “She has seen a lot of our songs and she loves Kajra Re, because its Mumma, Papa and its Dadaji. She really likes Kajra Re.” Well, we bet there’s not a single Bollywood film fan who does not like this song, right? Bachchan Jr in a chat with senior journalists Rajeev Masand and Anupama Chopra also revealed that he does not know which film of his is wife Aishwarya’s favourite. Believe it or not, but Abhishek has never asked his wife, which of his acts has impressed her the most. The actor who’s back on screen after a brief gap did confess that as a couple Ash and he rarely discuss work.
While Aishwarya may not have discussed her hubby’s best work as yet, Abhishek loves his wife in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Guru, Raincoat and her first film Iruvar. Abhishek quashed all reports of being upset with Aishwarya – Hrithik Roshan’s Jodha Akbar when he picked Ashutosh Gowariker’s this film as one of her best work. He said, “I loved her in Guru and Jodha Akbar. But I really loved Iruvar, I just really enjoy that film. I also thought she was brilliant in Raincoat. I preferred her in Raincoat (over Choker Bali).”
Aishwarya and Abhishek will be reuniting on screen in Gulab Jamun, while Amitabh Bachchan collaborates for the first time with Aamir Khan in Yash Raj Films' Thugs Of Hindostan.
