After sharing his emotional reaction to Ghoomer, Amitabh Bachchan now expresses his pride in son Abhishek Bachchan’s performance. Amitabh Bachchan has once again praised the work of his actor-son Abhishek Bachchan in his latest film Ghoomer, and added that he will no longer reserve his compliments as a father.
Directed by R Balki, Ghoomer features Abhishek Bachchan as a former cricketer turned coach, while Saiyami Kher plays a passionate cricketer. Soon after watching the film directed by R Balki, Amitabh revealed that the performances and the film touched him and he cried. He took to his blog again late Thursday and wrote his appreciation for the film just hours ahead of Ghoomer’s release in theatres. Shabana Azmi plays Saiyyami’s onscreen grandmom, while Angad Bedi plays the role of her lover in the film that hits the theatres on August 18.
Amitabh praised Abhishek’s performance in his blog
Amitabh wrote in his blog, “It is beyond all doubt that Ghoomer is a very superior film. I say this as a father yes, but also as a long-standing member of this fantastic fraternity. At this young age, Abhishek, and in the duration of the time (that) you have been in the Industry, you have played the most complex characters with immense conviction, diversity, and aplomb. Each one (has been) difficult and different, and each (one) successful. My pride has no bounds. It has been tough to be in reserve on compliments and facts. But no more. It has been spoken and shall be spoken ever. My love.”
Amitabh’s guest appearance in Ghoomer
Ghoomer also features Amitabh Bachchan in a guest role. He plays a special commentator in the film but Abhishek and Amitabh do not share any frame in the film. In his earlier blog for Ghoomer, Amitabh had written that he watched the film twice the same day and called it “simply incredible”. He added that he cried watching the film, more so because of Abhishek’s performance. He also praised Balki’s narration of the story.
