Abhishek Bachchan discloses if he would want to cut ties with Amitabh Bachchan in the Past
In an interview, when Abhishek Bachchan was asked if he would go back in time to remove all pictures and close connections with his father, Amitabh Bachchan and rather than enter the industry with a new name and identity, he replied,
“I would never do that, I’ve never felt the need to do that either. For me, the greatest pride comes from the fact that I’m my parents’ son. Professionally as well. I look upon the responsibility of being my parents’ son very differently from how the world perceives it.
“For me, I look at it as the responsibility to carry forth the family’s legacy… I’ve never looked at it as a burden, or an albatross around my neck. I’ve looked at it as a huge, huge privilege and an honour, and I wake up every morning wanting to do good service to that.
