Abhishek Bachchan addresses his middle-class upbringing

Indian actor Abhishek Bachchan spills the beans on his love of growing up with a “completely normal middle-class upbringing” all thanks to his mom Jaya Bachchan.

The actor got candid during an interview with the Bollywood Bubble and was quoted crediting his mother for providing him a “completely normal middle-class upbringing.”

He was quoted saying, "At the end of the day, when the audience is in that theatre, they're going to be watching you. They've bought a ticket to your film. If they want to see Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, they'll buy a ticket to their movies, why would they come to my movies?"

At the end of the day, "We are all here to entertain the audiences. We are here because a part of us, apart from creative satisfaction, also want to hear the applause. You want to get the pat on the back saying, ‘Job well done’. That’s a large part of being an actor.”

“It’s a wonderful thing. Why do we try and stay away from it in our false attempt at being humble? I love it when the films that I work in do well. I love it when the audience gives me positive feedback. I am concerned when my films don’t do well. I am concerned if I don’t get good feedback for my work. I learn from it."
