Abhishek Bachchan is getting ready for the release of his upcoming film ‘Manmarziyaan’. The film also stars Vicky Kaushal and Tapsee Pannu in lead. It is slated for 7 September release. In a recent interview, he talked about his childhood, his daughter Aradhya, and his wife Aishwarya.
While sharing insights about his childhood, he said, “I was very naughty, that’s what my mother tells me. But I feel most boys are that way growing up.”
He also told that he would often get whacked by his mother Jaya and even a single glare from his father would scare him. He said, “Yes, mom was strict. She would hit me sometimes. But as soon as I grew up a bit, I was beyond her reach (smiles). Dad never even raised his voice, forget raising his hand. Just one look was enough to make us realise our mistake and vow never to repeat it.”
Talking about his daughter Aradhya, he said, “She is too young, she’s just six-year-old now. We haven’t discussed it yet. I remember, when I was in boarding school, I would often write letter to my dad. But today’s children are technology driven. Aaradhya writes me notes sometimes when I am out of town. But we usually stay in touch through FaceTime.”
“Today’s children are so mature, they are able to adapt so much more quickly than us or our parents. Each of us has a different journey of parenthood,” he added.
Life changes when you get married. Same thing happened with Junior Bachchan as well. Talking about the same, he said, “When I was single, I would just pack my bags with the essentials and head off. Now that I am a family man, I try to put some effort into packing for all of us. But before I can get to it, I find that Aishwarya has already done everything that needs to be done. She’s a one-woman army, I must say,”
