Abhishek Bachchan ready to scream from rooftops to promote Delhi 6February 21st, 2009 - 3:16 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 21 (ANI): Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan is promoting his new flick Delhi 6, and is so excited that he wants to scream from the roof tops and ask people to go watch his film.
During an interview on his recent visit to London, the actor said that the movie, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, would hit the right chord with people living away from India.
I think especially for a lot of people here in the UK or anyone living outside India whose families are from there will associate with the film, the BBC quoted him as saying.
He added: It’’s the journey of one boy who goes back home to Delhi from New York. It’’s really going to touch a chord with people who know what it feels like to spend a lot of time outside their homeland. I”m very proud of the film. I saw the rough cut of the film and I”m immensely proud. I want to scream from the rooftops ”people go watch this film”. It’’s a good film.
On working with some of Bollywood’’s legends in the film, like Waheeda Rehman and Rishi Kapoor, the Guru actor said: Brilliant! Brilliant! I think the greatest thing about them is they”re more like kids on set. You go there thinking I”m just going to absorb and learn from these great actors but you end up realising they”re actually observing you and learning from you. That’’s what makes them great!
Speaking about his co-star in the film, Sonam Kapoor, Abhishek said: She’’s such a wonderful young actress and I wish her all the best because I think she’’s done a very commendable job in the movie. She’’s someone who’’s really going to leave her stamp on Indian movies. She’’s great fun and a pleasure to be with on set.
On the character in the film named after an Indian sweet, Jalebi, he said: Jalebi is played by Divya Dutta, another wonderful actor. That’’s just it - it’’s a huge bouquet of wonderful characters - it’’s just wonderful to be part of it.
When asked about his next film with wife Aishwarya Rai, the 33-year-old star said: We”re currently shooting a film with Director Mani Ratnam in India which hasn”t got a title yet but will be ready by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, Abhisheks wife Aishwarya is all set to woo the audiences in Pink Panther 2 alongside Steve Martin. (ANI)
