Bob Biswas: Abhishek Bachchan gets a grandson's welcome in Kolkata

Says Abhishek. “It is very heartening to return to Kolkata. The last time I shot in this city was for Mani Ratnam’s Yuva in 2003. I’ve also shot for Rituparno Ghosh’s Antar Mahal in Kolkata. Then I did another Bengali film Partha Sengupta’s Desh where I played my own mom’s son. Each time I’ve been given a royal welcome here. It feels like coming home. Bengalis call me their Naati (grandson).”

Abhishek’s mother Jaya Bachchan is Bengali and Jaya’s father Taroon Coomar Bhaduri was an eminent journalist in Kolkata.
