Taapsee Pannu Photoshoot At PMJ Jewels Diamond Collection
After a brief sabbatical from film, Abhishek Bachchan is returning with Manmarziyaan and his co-star Taapsee Pannu calls the actor’s decision to take a break extremely “brave and courageous.” Post his 2016 release Housefull 3, Abhishek took time off from cinema.
His decision to hold off for a while may show that the instability in the industry puts everyone on the same level — be it a star kid or an outsider — but Taapsee Pannu says for her it only reflects one thing: strength. “Abhishek will sometimes be sure, sometimes unsure of things but you need strength to survive all the ups and downs. Then to take a break to sort things out and return with a film like Manmarziyaan. It is not a conventional heroic film for him to do. It is very brave and he is strong as a person to do that. It requires courage,” Taapsee told PTI.
The Pink star says it would be wrong to say that Abhishek has not proved himself as a performer in the industry. “If you talk about his background, he is Amitabh Bachchan’s son and he has a legacy on top of him. Yes, they (star kids) do get privilege of being a star regardless of whatever work they do. But he has proved himself as an actor in films. It is not that he is totally devoid of good performance and we all know that.
