For Abhishek Bachchan, there are things more important than just being on screen frequently. This is about being relevant. That is the reason why he decided to take a small break from films for a while.

The actor, known for his films such as Guru, Yuva, Bluffmaster and Bunty Aur Babli, had shared in an interview about this decision. According to Abhishek, being complacent is the poison that can slowly kill actors' career and he felt the same recently. The best way to get detoxify is taking time off and re-focus. This remedy seems to work on him.

Being away from work somehow helps him develop himself a lot. As a person who tends to analyze everything, Abhishek had time to figure out the past, to think about lessons learned through success and failures. He also had time to reset his mind as well as work on creating a clear future.

Abhishek Won’t Advise The ‘Sabbatical’ To Other Actors

It Doesn't Mean That 'Sabbatical' Works To Other Actors

Even when taking a break brings Abhishek positive results, he would not advise it to other artists. As he believes that each of us has a different level of being stagnant, solutions for each person will be varied. Of course, a sabbatical is not the only way to cope with the problem.

"It depends from person to person", explained Abhishek. It is a personal journey that each one has to experience themselves and find out their own remedy for the problem. He also emphasized the significance of being relatable and relevant instead of being available on screen or other projects.

Do Critics Hurt?

As a son of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, it is promising for Abhishek to debut in the film industry and release hits. However, it also poses a huge challenge for him of getting out of his father's shadow. In facts, Abhishek's career seemed to be chequered with full of ups and downs.

Regarding critics and trolls on the internet, Abhishek knows how to give it back in a dignified yet witty manner. As an entertainer, it is a quest to entertain the audience as much as possible. And on that journey, you'd better play a different character and do not let the criticism let you down.

And What About Harsh Comments?

To Abhishek, when an audience spends money to watch a film then they have the right to judge or being harsh. "If they don't like my performance, I am okay with their harsh comments." It is impossible to satisfy all of them so Abhishek's way is to focus only on those who support him. He has no problem with those who are tough and direct.
