Mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan feels son Abhishek Bachchan has finally come into his own with Sarkar , in which the two share screen space as father and son for the first time.

"For Abhishek, who had been loaded with expectations and crushed under the burden of successive failures, to suddenly find himself as the chosen one is God's benevolence...In Sarkar, Abhishek truly comes into his own," Bachchan said in an interview.




On Ram Gopal Varma saying that Abhishek is a better actor than him, Bachchan said: "He must have his reasons...and he must be right. But what a terrific compliment for me as a father...For that matter, any father in the world. It's a moment of greatest pride when the son out-excels his father."

Bachchan firmly believes that Sarkar will add to Abhishek's stature saying: "Because it comes soon after Bunty Aur Babli . Not many young actors get contrasting opportunities like this in such a short span of time. It's wonderful that Abhishek got it."

"But somewhere it also shows the confidence of the respective makers in the actor. Two different directors from two different schools and ideologies seeing something different in the same actor and then going ahead to manifest this difference on screen."

Bachchan praised Ramu with whom he worked for the first time in Sarkar: "Ramu was a first timer for me. But I have been admiring his work for long...and interacting with him for several years...so it did not seem as though we were working for the first time. He is passionate about films, their making, their history and has incredible memory and knowledge of films gone by. This creates an almost nonchalant and relaxed atmosphere. Everyone on the sets knows exactly what to do. Ramu spends intimate time with the artistes to explain what he desires and then mostly leaves it to the artiste."

Bachchan, who made a special appearance in Paheli , had this to say about Amol Palekar and Shah Rukh Khan : "Paheli" was a one-scene experience...too short to form and give any comments. But Amol is an accomplished actor and translating that quality to a film that he directs makes him an accomplished director. He brings the same sensibilities that he is so renowned for in his acting."

"Shah Rukh is a gregarious, large-hearted and extravagant as a producer...and very focussed and considerate as a co-star."
