The Sarkar franchise is synonymous with the Bachchan family. The third edition of the franchise, however, will not see Bachchan junior share screen space with his father.
Says Abhishek, “It’s unfortunate that I couldn’t be part of Sarkar 3. My character was killed in Sarkar 2. This was one of my favourite films and also one of my favourite characters to play. I’d love to be part of the continuing saga in some way or the other.”
Abhishek, who has shared the screen on a number of occasions with his father, is keen to do another film with Big B. He shares, “Every time I get to do a film with him, I emerge stronger as an actor. Every film with him has been a memorable experience. And movies are all about memories.”
Like the rest of the country, Abhishek is completely bowled over by his father’s performances. “He continues to surprise all of us. Actors of my generation and those before and after me can’t stop learning from him,” he signs off.
