Talking about Aamir, he said, “I can’t say Aamir is my buddy. For the kind of work he has done and is doing there is certain amount of respect that I have for him. I am in awe of him. I have learnt a lot from him while working with him on this film.”
In ‘Dhoom’ and ‘Dhoom 2’, Abhishek worked with John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan who played negative roles but Abhishek is not ready to choose his favourite villain among all three.
He said, “I have had fun working with all of them. All the three films are very much different and so are these (of villains) characters. For ‘Dhoom 3′ we have gone a step ahead. I don’t look them as villains but as co-stars. It is difficult… unfair to choose who is my favourite (villain).”
While celebrating her birthday with the media, Aishwarya said, “Aaradhya sleeps very late, so in the midnight she sang Happy Birthday to me. It’s a very special experience. She did the same last month for paa (Amitabh Bachchan) also.”
She added, “She first wished herself and then she wished me.”
When the actress was about the special gift her husband Abhishek Bachchan gifted to her, she replied, “We will leave it to Abhishek to share it with you. He has given me a gift, but the biggest gift he has given me is Aaradhya. She is my biggest gift.”
Aishwarya has delivered some hit films such as ‘Chokher Bali’, ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, ‘Dhoom 2’ and ‘Devdas’ etc. in the past.

While talking to reporters at the launch of a book ‘Teenage Blues’, Abhishek said, “I just hope that when my daughter turns a teenager, she continues to appreciate her mother and father the way I still respect, acknowledge and love my parents for all that they have been doing for me.”
Abhishek will soon be seen on screen in ‘Dhoom 3’ along with Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif. And he is currently shooting for Farah Khan’s film ‘Happy New Year’ which also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.
Banking a baby’s stem cell has been made cheaper by Life Cell, a biotechnology company. Aishwarya requests family and friends to support the cause of stem cell preservation by gifting it to expecting parents.
While unveiling new Stem Cell Banking scheme, Aishwarya said, “Families and friends can come together to make this gift possible in a parent’s life. We traditionally buy so many things for expecting parents.”
She added, “So family and friends can come together to pursue this possibility in expectant parents lives and make that the perfect gift for the child coming into this life.”
Aishwarya informed that she along with her husband Abhishek Bachchan has opted stem cell banking for their daughter Aaradhaya.
She said, “I had always banked that thought even before I got married. At that point of time we were contacted by a lot of companies and closer to the date we interacted extensively with Life Cell. Once were convinced we went ahead with the decision to bank with Life Cell.”
Calling it a sensible investment, Aishwarya said, “To those who can afford it, we really look at a lot of expenses. A lot of indulgences are so easily spent upon that somehow this thereby seems like a sensible investment.”
Actor Abhishek Bachchan who endorses a global watch brand similar to Daniel Craig says he doesn’t’ wish to be James Bond.

Though Abhishek doesn’t believe in copying Daniel but he wishes to work with him in a Bollywood movie featuring him, Daniel and George Clooney who is also the brand ambassador of the same watch. Talking about the movie, Abhishek said, “This will be more kind of an Indian film. Dance, colourful costumes, They (producers) have to do their research. And (if) they have any nice character (for me) in mind (I am ready).”
The actor also joked that he is ready to teach them Bollywood dance.
The kind of films, he likes doing, Abhishek said, “I do films that I like. I have done comedy, romance, everything and I always like to do it differently from the previous ones.”
Expressing his feelings about late filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh with whom he worked in ‘Antarmahal’, Abhishek said he had been a friend of “Me, my wife (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), my parents. My family misses him terribly.”
He added, “His ‘Raincoat’ was a wonderful film. Also ‘Chokher Bali’. It is a huge loss for Indian cinema. I would love to watch ‘Satyaneswi’ (his last film).”
Currently Abhishek is shooting for director- choreographer Farah Khan’s film ‘Happy New Year’ which also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.

The actor said, “I am used to people whistling at my wife… see my wife then you will know why I am saying this. I have never whistled at her to woo her… I don’t think it’s the right thing to do. I courted her through my gesture, emotions and words.”
Supporting Abhishek, Aishwarya, “This is why I am married to him.”
It has been six years since Abhishek and Aishwarya are married and the actor said that she makes good desserts.

Amitabh Bachchan’s father was a famous Hindi litterateur. The actor was interacting with media at a book launch event and when he was asked about the kind of book he would like to write, he replied, “I do not have the capacity to write a book… I am having a tough time being an actor. To start another profession would be very difficult for me.”

Expressing his view about Charlie Chaplin’s work, he said, “There is a group of people in Switzerland who have decided to reinvent many works of Charlie Chaplin that the world does not know. This is my attempt to bring those films up, to reprint them and bring them to the people.”
He added, “There are prominent film personalities who are contributing funds to restore these films. I have made a small contribution and chosen this film.”

Amitabh also felt bad that Bollywood didn’t organise a grand celebration to mark 100 years of Indian cinema.

He added, “I believe cinema is one of the few surviving institutions that brings people together.”
