Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who happens to be the co-producer of megastar Amitabh Bachchan's next film 'Shamitabh', says that he has a passing role in the R. Balki-directed affair.
â€œI was flying somewhere and I happened to pass by from where Balki and all were shooting for 'Shamitabh'. He told me to just give a passing shot in the movie which I did,â€ quips Abhishek on being asked when we see him share screen space with dad Amitabh Bachchan.
Abhishek and Amitabh Bachchan have created magic whenever they appeared together on-screen, be it 'Bunty Aur Babli', 'Paa' or the 'Sarkar' movies. And now with 'Shamitabh' having both the stars, one may again expect some magic at the box-office.
Meanwhile, Abhishek may have won several awards and accolades in his 15 year long career. However he has only 3 Filmfare awards to his credit. Ask Abhishek if he is expecting one this year for his whistle worthy performance in 'Happy New Year', he says, â€œMy acceptance speech is ready and I am hoping to win one this year for 'Happy New Year'.â€
Well, now whether AB wins an award or no is something to watch out for at this year's Filmfare!
