Expressing his feelings about making a film on sports, Abhishek said, “It`s my dream to produce sports-based film. In India, we have not done justice to the sports genre (of films). The US is doing a great job by promoting sports through their films. I would love to produce a film based on sports.”

I see myself in the mirror every day and it is a horrific sight. So I am not competing, I can’t. The reason why we got together wasn’t cosmetic.”
He added, “She is one of the most down to earth…. normal people you will ever meet. She hasn’t married me because I am a film star or I am a Bachchan and I haven’t married her because she is the most beautiful woman on earth or one of the biggest stars on earth, so that never comes in the equation.”
Abhishek and Aishwarya, who got married in 2007, have a daughter named Aaradhya who was born in 2011.
Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan whose last released film ‘Dhoom 3’ has broken all box office records and still making money at the box office says he is back to Mumbai after celebrating New Year with his family in Dubai.

Abhishek tasted success in 2013 with his blockbuster film ‘Dhoom 3’ which also stars Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Uday Chopra in important roles.
Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan praises his actress wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for her professionalism and the way she takes care of their daughter Aaradhya Bachchan. Abhishek wants to protect her daughter from the media. He wants to give her normal childhood.
While talking to reporters about his wife, Abhishek said, “Her (Aishwarya’s) professionalism and dedication is unquestionable. As a mother (of Aaradhya) she is superb..she is a super mom. As a co-star, I have always loved working with her. It is a pleasure.”
On protecting their daughter from the media, Abhishek said, “As her parents, Aishwarya and I want our child to be happy and healthy. I was guarded from all this (media attention and showbiz world). The trade magazine and all was banned in my house. The first time I read a film magazine was when I was 18.”
He added, “This is one department (of children) where I would want the media to show restrain and responsibility. In our time social media was not there. I appeal to the media to show restrain..Don’t do this to them..let children grow up the way they want to. We want to let her (Aaradhya) grow as a normal kid.”
Praising his wife furhter, Abhishek said, “Aishwarya always knew what is the right film for her and has a knack to pick a right film that suits her. I love her as an actor. I am a big fan of her and she should be given the liberty to choose the films she wants to do”.
Earlier it has been reported that the couple will do Prahlad Kakkar’s film, he said, “What happens in selection process is (that) you have certain ideas and suggestions and things get worked out, so it is time consuming. It takes time to develop a script to making a film…It doesn’t happen overnight.”
He added, “He has a script which he is keen on. We haven’t heard it completely yet. If we like it then we will do it.”
Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan believes that if a film is not good then it can’t work even if big stars are cast in it. He also feels that he cannot achieve the stardom, his father has achieved in his four decades career.
Talking his father during an interview, Abhishek said, “One must stay in their limits only. I think one must aim for Mars… forget about reaching the Sun. It is not going to happen. It is the same with him. He is the biggest, was, is and is ever going to be. So don’t aspire to be that because it is not going to happen. Aspire to be your own man and achieve your own goals.”
Abhishek thinks that a film works when it is good. He said, “If the film is not good and even if you have Mr Amitabh Bachchan in it then also it will not work. I would love to say that (all films that dad does will be hits).. it makes a great copy. But the fact is, if the film is not good, the story is not good then nobody can save your film. So it is important to choose films properly.”
The 37-year-old actor continuously wants to work as his father does, he said, “I hope and pray that I am doing the same thing as he is. I can’t see my life without getting the opportunity to work and do films. I hope I am blessed enough that even at his age I get to be making films every day.”
On working with his father, he explained, “After ‘Paa’ we haven’t got any film that has excited both of us. We have done memorable films like ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, ‘Sarkar’, ‘Sarkar Raaj’, ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’ and ‘Paa’. So you need to do something that is going to be bigger and better than our previous films. We won’t do any film together just like that.”
Apart from his father Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek also appreciates superstars Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan for their honesty towards their work, he said, “There is one common thing in superstars — enthusiasm and humility towards their work. Off sets they are big stars for others and they carry themselves the way they want to. When they are working they are not stars. On sets they are like making the best film and giving their best.”
He added, “When you work with senior actors you maintain that respect but when you see them working like a normal actor, you look up to them. They are concerned about getting the film right and that is very refreshing. It is very heartening to see all this.”
