Abhishek Bachchan is coming witha  film titled Manmarziyaan. The film will also star Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal in lead. He was last seen in 2016 comedy film Housefull 3. In an interview, Abhishek talked about his two years long break from films. Speaking about the same, he said, “I felt I was becoming complacent in my workspace and that was the main reason why I decided to go on a break. Complacency is like slow poison. That is why I needed some time off. To just re-focus and I am glad that I did that.”

He said that he learns from his past after analyzing it in order to evolve for betterment. He said, “I analyze my past and work on creating a future keeping in mind the lessons I have learned through both success and failures.”

“It is everybody’s personal journey. I won’t say every artiste needs that break. It depends on person to person. Whatever you need at that point. I believe it is important to be relevant and relatable rather than being seen on-screen and in every second project,” he added.

He also said that he welcomes criticism from people. The actor said, “My quest is to entertain my audience and on that journey, we get to play so many different characters. It is about being as entertaining as possible. I am okay with the audience and the critics expecting from me.

“I am okay with getting harsh comments if they don’t like my performance. They are spending money to watch my films and they have every right to be harsh. I have no problems with them being direct to me,” he said.

Talking about his upcoming film Manmarziyaan, he said, “Earlier this year, Aanand L Rai called me and then I got the narration of the film. He told me he wanted Anurag to direct. When he told me that, I said yes within 15 minutes. I felt it was a perfect mixture of creative people, with Anurag essentially. I instinctively knew Anurag would do something different with a love story. He pushed me and also at some level it was nice because Anurag was coming out of his comfort zone.”

The film will hit the screens on 14 September.
