Abhishek Bachchan is such a cool guy and meeting him is an absolute delight each time. He’s sharp, witty and always has the coolest things to say. He’s on a promotional spree for his upcoming All Is Well and in a recent interview to DNA, AB junior opened up like never before.

Here are 5 amazing things he said:

1. On Amitabh Bachchan’s role in his career…

My father never interfered in my career choices in life. He’s always told me that it’s your life and career, you have to do what you want and you have to learn on your own.

2. On when he knew he wanted to be an actor…

I always wanted to be an actor but the first time I officially told him was on the April 17 or 18 of April, 1994. It’s a big moment and that’s why I still remember it. I told my mom first. She gave me the strength to tell my dad. He was very happy.

3. On working with Rishi Kapoor…

Dad and Chintu uncle have worked together in films and so he’s like family. There’s always a discussion about a scene and every actor has his own approach to it. There’s always a give and take between co-stars and that’s Chintu uncle’s biggest ability — of being a co-star.

4. On Ranbir Kapoor…

Ranbir is younger to me and more like a baby brother. We play football together and we meet every week. The cool part is that my equation with Ranbir is pretty much the same as it is with Chintu uncle.

5. On Deepika Padukone forgetting to invite Big B for her Piku success bash…

I have nothing to say on that. I am too busy doing my own work to bother about other people’s work. If I bump into her at an event, I would like to believe that I am a well-mannered and well-brought up person and I won’t snub her or behave coldly. What has that got to do with anything?

6. On why he didn’t want to be a part of the AIB Roast…

Yes. The AIB guys had approached me first. But I get roasted every Friday on the basis of my film’s release. Why do I need somebody else to do it for me? I think everybody has an opinion, it’s a democratic nation, and everybody has the right to express it. If you want to be a subject to that, power to you man, well done. If you don’t, then I think you should respect that. I work and live in a profession in which I am up for public speculation every second of the day, so I get my fair share of reality check.

We love you AB <3
