It is a known fact, that time and again Abhishek Bachchan has been targeted for his performances in his films. He has always faced the brunt of comparison with his father Amitabh Bachchan and wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

However, the actor has always taken it all very sportingly. But, at the recent event held for the success for his film 'Housefull 3', Jr. Bachchan lost his cool!

When the actor was asked whether he has any upcoming projects where he will be seen playing the lead role, he retorted: "I hope so. If you have a nice script, I'll be more than happy to read it. But I didn't understand your question."

When mentioned as a 'solo actor', he said: "As the only person in the film? It will be a very boring film."

When the journalist clarified that he meant 'male lead', by now Abhishek got little irritated and said: "So I act like a female right now or what? I'm not understanding your question."

Further when the media tried to explain him by giving the examples of his previous films like 'Guru' and 'Bluffmaster', where he was the 'lead', Abhishek said: "In 'Bluffmaster', I had wonderful co-actors called Riteish Deshmukh and Boman Irani. In 'Guru' I had wonderful co-actors like Mithun da (Mithun Chakraborty), Maddy (R. Madhavan), Aishwarya (Rai) and Vidya Balan. What're you trying to say?"

When told about being a 'male lead' in 'Guru', he said: "Mithun da and Madhavan were male actors in that as well."

When told that he was the 'lead actor' in these two films, Abhishek finally said: "I don't think so. I don't look upon films like that. My definition is slightly different. I believe anybody, no matter how big or small their role, is equally responsible for the film and in the success or the failure. I don't like to differentiate just based on the size of the role.

"If you look at 'Housefull'; It's a wonderful franchise and the most popular character of the 'Housefull' franchise is Chunky (Pandey), who shot for just three days in the film. Aakhri Pasta (Chunky's character) has got the biggest recall in the 'Housefull' franchise. So the size of the role shouldn't matter."

Abhishek concluded by saying: "I just feel that every actor should be given the love and respect as his fellow actor. So I have never believed in this word 'solo male lead', for me a solo film is when you're doing it alone; you're the only person in the film."

Anyways I loved Abhishek's style of answering and his main point of categorizing the roles in main and side characters.

eshi786 6 years ago They just wanted to know his next film as a lead actor. Don't see why he couldn't just say it. Weird. I guess he doesn't have any films as a solo hero.

MrDarcyfan 6 years ago I get his point, but I get the media's point too. They want to know what is his next project were the story is concentrating more on his character. I fail to accept he did not understand the question. I guess he doesn't want to categorize a role as "1st lead" or "2nd lead". I agree with his statement that a character can be loved and equally impactful regardless of the length of the role.

Sometimes, the so called 2nd lead steals the show! Like Rahul Bose's role did in Takshak. I still remember his character Sunny, whilst I don't even remember the name of Ajay's character! (though Ajay is a good actor), in that movie Rahul Bose upstaged him! So I think I agree with Abhishek here!
