Recently during a short whirlwind tour to the City of Joy in order to launch the first ever showroom of Omega, the watch brand that the Bachchan lad endorses, Abhishek Bachchan spoke and discussed about all his upcoming ventures as we kept listening.
While it was Bol Bachchan last year that was Abhi’s last film, it is almost a year now and there has been no trace of another Abhishek Bachchan starrer this year until the year end, which is all set to end with a Dhoom! Speaking on Dhoom 3 and his association with the franchise, Abhishek shared, “Dhoom is all about the police and the thieves. And it is one franchise which I have been proudly a part of since the last ten years. It is a hugely entertaining franchise, which produces films that cater to the family audiences. Uday and I are an integral part of Dhoom and somehow the constant characters in the entire series. We love being a part of this film always. Every time, we have a new villain, with Aamir taking up that role this time. Needless to say, he is fabulous in the film and I want him to do Dhoom 4 as well. But this time, he should take up the role of the good guy and not the baddie because he would excel in that as well.”
And if Dhoom 3 is somehow the biggie lined up this year, Abhishek has his hands full with Farah Khan’s Happy New Year where he shares screen space with King Khan, years after Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. On his experience with the entire cast during the first schedule, he brushes it with giggles. “The Dubai schedule has been the best schedule for me ever. We have had the most fun filming this movie. The entire cast gelled along really well and it was overall a fantastic experience. Our next schedule would begin in Mumbai and it is too early to talk about the film”, he clarifies his point of being protective about the core theme of the film.
But in all the flurry of questions, what he does reveal is that he has his hands full with another film that seems to have gone unnoticed amidst the heavyweight films he’s doing. “I am also doing a film with Umesh Shukla, the director of Oh My God, for which I am starting to shoot from October 1st. It stars me, Asin and Rishi Kapoor in the leading roles and all I can say is that the script is brilliant and touches you on a sensitive level. I am really excited about that film.”
