It isn’t unknown that Abhishek Bachchan walked out of Paltan right before the movie was going to take off. But what isn’t heard of is that the actor was devastated after walking out of the film.
“I was obviously doing Paltan and for personal reasons, I had to bow out of the film. It was devastating for me because it’s JP saab. He didn’t only launch me but he has been like a mentor, a family to me,” Abhishek told Indian Express.
“He is somebody I love immensely and I really wanted to be there for him especially when he was going on this journey because he was making a film after so long. But it was heartbreaking for me to not be able to stand by him during the making of the film,” the actor said.
“The promo is fantastic. I am really looking forward to it. It’s coming up on the seventh and I am really excited about it. I have always wished him the best and I am always there for him and he knows that. Our relationship goes much beyond than making films. I will be the first person in the cinema to see it,” he further added.
“Of course, I have spoken to him. I messaged (him). I tweeted about it. He is the best at what he does. I am partial and I am biased. I will always be and unabashedly so,” Abhishek said.
Speaking about their movie Gulab Jamun and Abhishek, Ash revealed to DNA, “I agreed on it (Gulab Jamun) early last year. At that time, Abhishek had taken a small break to review his work. It was a good move because I think every professional should do that. He just wanted to sit back and decide what he wanted to do next.”
Abhishek Bachchan will soon be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Manmarziyaan’ with Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu.
