The Shehenshah of the Bollywood industry, Amitabh Bachchan, is one of the most outstanding actors, who has always managed to win our hearts. However, Big B is also a proud father, a loyal husband, a loving grandfather, and needless to say, an inspiration to millions. Amitabh Bachchan and his son, Abhishek Bachchan, share an amicable bond, so much so that they are best friends to each other. The father-son duo never fails to admire one another and openly display genuine respect for each other on social media and various interviews.
In his career of over two decades, Amitabh Bachchan's son, Abhishek Bachchan, has been constantly compared to his megastar father, by the audience. The doting father never leaves a chance to express how proud he is of Abhishek Bachchan and often gives the proof of how junior B is more like a friend to him. And once again, Big B has expressed his pride in his son, Abhishek Bachchan, on his social media handle.
On November 19, 2021, Abhishek's upcoming film, Bob Biswas' trailer got released, and none other than megastar Amitabh Bachchan reviewed it. On seeing his son play the iconic character of Bob Biswas, the doting father could not stop himself from praising his son and his acting skills in the trailer. Senior Bachchan took to his social media handle and expressed how proud he is of his son. Sharing the trailer of Abhishek's film on his social media handle, Big B wrote:
"T 4100 - I am proud to say you are my Son ! ... BYCMJBBN .. !!"
This isn’t the first time that Big B has praised Abhishek's performance. Previously, when his film, The Big Bull, was released, Big B had turned cheerleader for Abhishek Bachchan. The proud father had congratulated Abhishek on the success of The Big Bull and had expressed the same in his blog. Big B had written:
"The pride of a Father .. THE BIG BULL .. biggest opening of the year for Disney Hotstar .. and the accolades keep coming in for all the incredible work he does .. my son .. my friend now .. because he wears my shoes, as I had said in an earlier missive - ‘when the Son starts wearing your shoes he is no longer your son he be your friend ‘ .. well done buddy."
Expressing how overwhelmed he was as Abhishek Bachchan's hard work had paid off, Amitabh Bachchan had continued:
"And don’t go by the 19.5 K views number .. that was within minutes of it going up .. the numbers on it last night were in the millions .. 6 million and rising .. i mean the purists said it was huge .. mostly it goes into a million or so for other counters but this one has gone .. yaa .. to the roof of the Stock Exchange .. keeping the ref., of the film story in mind!! And overwhelmed with the paying off of the hard work of Abhishek, it is difficult to comment any more."
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Abhishek Bachchan had reacted to the constant comparisons with his father, Amitabh Bachchan, that he had faced in his entire career. Abhishek was quoted as saying:
"You've compared me to the great Amitabh Bachchan; I find him to be the best. So who else are you going to compare me to that's going to frazzle me? I'm used to being compared to him, so I'm not frazzled. It's flattering to me. Being an actor, and being a part of the film industry for 20-odd years, I know how challenging it is to get due recognition... You're flattering me by comparing me to him. I take it as a compliment."
On the work front, Abhishek Bachchan will be next seen in the film, Bob Biswas.
