“There was, is and will always be only one Amitabh Bachchan. No one can reach that level… and that is why he is called ‘Big B’. He is my father and I am ‘Junior’ Bachchan,” he said.
The actor is the city to review the preparations of his Kabaddi team–Jaipur Pink Panther.
When asked if there was any rivalry between the father-son duo since both are involved in new projects–Amitabh is seen in his first television serial ‘Yudh’ and Abhishek owns a Kabbadi team, the actor said there was no such thing.
“There is no competition. I always discuss and consult things with him before doing it and seek his blessings. I have seen the serial (Yudh) and he is doing great. Here, I am busy with my team and looking after them,” Abhishek said.
The actor said that he would be busy with the team and the Kabaddi league till next month and would also spend time in promotion of his upcoming movie ‘Happy New Year’.
Abhishek said his father had taught him Kabaddi in childhood and he also played the game during his student days in Delhi.
“My father is very excited about the league and my new role as the team owner. He also wanted to come to Jaipur to see the preparations but he could not make it and hopefully he and my other family members are expected to visit Jaipur during the match,” he added.
