“I am feeling nervous, excited and eight other emotions” – Abhishek Bachchan

Abhishek Bachchan“>

No point taking the credit away from him by calling him the son of a superstar, Abhishek Bachchan has come into his own in every single way. Though he had a rough start in Bollywood, AB Jr. is now one of the most compelling performers of B-town. Abhishek Bachchan shines in his own light now. Married to one of India’s most beautiful woman, Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek has proven that his off screen ‘jodi’ with Ash works beautifully on screen too, whether it was in Sarkar Raj or Guru.

Yet again, the Junior Bachchan plans to come on the silver screen with Ash in a riveting Mani Ratnam film Raavan, in which he plays the title role.

Bollywood Hungama proudly got the ‘Raavan’ Abhishek live on Celebrity Video Chat but for all those who missed the chance here are excerpts from the chat.
