Abhishek Bachchan: 'After Ash, dad my favourite co-star'


Mumbai, May 16 -- Abhishek Bachchan, who has quite a few actor friends in the industry, seems to get along quite well with all his co-stars. But ask him who his favourite co-star is and he says, "After Ash (wife Aishwarya), dad (Amitabh) is my favourite co-star."
In fact, the father-son duo has appeared together in many films, including Bunty Aur Babli (2005), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007), Sarkar Raj (2008) and Paa (2009), where the roles were reversed and the Big B played Abhishek's son. "Just like in real life, we have a great understanding even on the sets, and the comfort level is always there with him," says the 37-year-old actor.
Coming back to his other favourite co-star, when will we see him paired with wife Aishwarya? "We want to work together, but we aren't getting the right script that suits us both," says Abhishek.
The actor, who is currently busy shooting for Dhoom:3 and Farah Khan's film, Happy New Year, is excited to be a part of the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) that'll be held in Macau from July 4 to 6. "I am excited because I will be performing there this year," he says.
Moving on, now that his daughter Aaradhya will also be walking the red carpet with mom and grandpa at the Cannes Film Festival, ask him if he feels disturbed by the constant speculation about what they will wear, and he says, "Such speculation is natural. After all, we are stars and there's no harm in people keeping an eye on our wardrobe."
