Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are undoubted, one of the best couples in Bollywood. Hands-on parents to daughter Aaradhya, the actors have prioritised their prodigy over their careers. Abhishek, in a recent interview, opened up on how his wife and his daughter have “immensely” contributed to his performances.
Thanking Aish for taking complete responsibility for taking care of Aaradhya when he is away on shoots, he said becoming a father has made him a responsible and thoughtful actor. Abhishek said, “A lot of what I am as an actor post marriage is due to Aishwarya. One is the practical, logistical side of it. To know that my wife is with Aaradhya is a huge, emotional weight that is lifted, from any parents’ mind. She has allowed me, and I say allowed because that’s what it is - she’s given me permission and allowed, ‘You go act, I’ll take care of Aaradhya.’ So you go out, you get the liberty to perform freely. And it’s a fact. The countless amount of mothers allow this with their husbands, and you have to be thankful. They have every right to say, ‘Come, shoulder the responsibility 50-50.’ So from that perspective.”
He added that being a husband and a father made him “richer as a performer”. Abhishek said, “The ultimate richness comes when you have a child because suddenly, your priorities and perspective change. You could have been fearless about some things but today, you cannot afford being fearless in some aspects because you are responsible for a new life.”
On the work front, Abhishek is currently basking in the success of ‘Bob Biswas’.
