The Bachans in Hyderabad
Bachan, his son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya, were in Hyderabad tonight to promote Ram Gopal Varma’s new film Sarkar Raj, as part of the Idea Yatra for Sarkar Raj.
Talking about the movie, Bachchan Sr. said Varma has proved that a film can do well commercially though it did not have typical song and dance sequences. Film critics in western countries earlier used to criticise Indian films for their song and dance numbers but now they have come to accept it, he said. Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan still hopes to do roles that will challenge him as an actor.
Asked to comment on Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek’s performance, Aishwarya said Bachchan senior is an institution unto himself and still has the attitude of a student towards work, while Abhishek too worked with total commitment.
