Abhishek Bachchan recently revealed that his father Big B was not really keen on him studying acting overseas in the past.
The said revelation came as part of an “uncensored” video from the recent episode of stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma’s show on his YouTube channel.
In the video, Abhishek, who told Kapil to stick to Hindi instead of attempting to speak English, said that his father Amitabh Bachchan was very particular about wanting him to be proud of the Hindi language.
He then shared a particular story of when the veteran star found out that Abhishek was studying acting in the US.
“I was studying acting in university, in Boston, when I told my dad I wanted to become an actor and was training for it. His first response was, ‘Very good, now come back home’,” he said.
Abhishek stated that his father believes that learning how to act via the western way would not play well with Hindi audiences.
“You are studying William Shakespeare’s dramas, all this won’t work here. Come back here and learn the language, acting will come to you naturally,” said Abhishek, repeating what his father advised him in the past.
