Is Mr. Bachchan overdoing it?
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
February 08, 2007

Fans of the Big B may not be happy to see this, but truth is not always music to one’s ears. Amitabh Bachchan has been giving interviews left, right and center ever since the release of….. guess; Guru, a film with which he has absolutely no connection. Of course,

Amitabh bachchan
Abhishek has played Gurukant Desai in Guru and the movie is doing well. But what is making Amitabh go to almost all news channels and get excited about the movie in a way that even Mani Ratnam or Abhishek have not.

Amitabh feels that Abhishek has put forward the best performance of his career. True, it is the first time in his career that an Abhishek film is getting noted for his performance. He has had his hits before but never have his acting skills been appreciated so unanimously. It sounded good the first couple of times when Amitabh said that Abhishek was just marvelous in the movie and that he would have died to get a chance to play such a character in his days. But he began walking on thin ice when he stated that Abhishek had surpassed him as an actor. Now, when he has not made such admissions about SRK or Aamir Khan, one cannot help but say that these comments sound extremely hollow.

When asked about his lavish praise for his son in an interview Amitabh said that “I am just being a normal father”. Being a normal father is fine, but when he says that “I would watch Guru a 100 times” (even Abhishek wouldn’t do that), one cannot help wonder how normal the father is.

Maybe, Amitabh should now understand that Abhishek is a man; after all he is getting married soon and has enough footing in the industry to be able to carry on without the Big B’s shadow. Also, the things that the Big B has said seem to erode Abhishek’s success rather than add credit to it. After all, anyone who hears these statements is bound to compare Abhishek with Amitabh the next time they watch an Abhishek movie. That is going to be a tough test.
