Another weekend and another Koffee with Karan episode, surprisingly, Karan has managed to pull a lot of siblings on his couch together and this time it was the Bachchan siblings’ time. Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan brought a lot of laughter, crazy secrets and sibling-banters on the show.
While Abhishek has been on the show several times, Shweta too shares a close bond with Karan, as Abhishek recalls that when he was in 7th grade, Karan and Shweta were tied up to a tree on the Madh Island, as both of them were not dressed according the theme of the party. They ended up spending time with each other and developed a friendship bond since then.
The two went on reveal that how Shweta was the daddy’s girl while Abhishek has always been the moon of his mother’s eyes. The sister then pulled his leg saying Jaya Bachchan looks at her son exactly the way she looks at Shah Rukh Khan in K3G to which jr. Bachchan said that how Shweta is always correct in front of their father’s eye. During rapid-fire Shweta, very funnily, revealed that her younger brother used to suck his thumb and wet the bed.
Talking about going low in his career Abhishek openly accepted his graph in the films saying, ‘…I was becoming very complacent and unconformable. I was part of huge films, huge budgets, huge stars, huge collections, everything was hunky-dory, I had no pressure as I was standing by the side or behind somebody else who was shouldering all the pressure…’, he further added about being into the films in a side role, ‘I say this with all the respect to my co-stars, I genuinely enjoyed those films but it is heart breaking for any actor who has been once centre staged to be on the side..It is difficult to digest. That hurt, that humiliation is important. The industry is the brutal place. No one is entitled to say that I am who I am and I deserve this. Everyone has to earn it. You have to earn your place in the industry. From centre you move to the left frame, it’s very hurtful.’
Shweta was in headlines last year as she released her book, Paradise Towers and also launched her fashion label MXS. Abhishek Bachchan was last seen in Manmarziyaan alongside Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal.
