There is no patch up because there is no problem,” Abhishek Bachchan says of a rumoured reconciliation with his wife’s ex-boyfriend Vivek Oberoi. “There has to be a problem first for a patch up to happen. There is no problem (between me and Vivek). I’m not a person who has problems with people and I don’t get bothered by such things,” he told HT City.
The junior Bachchan says he’s not one for “celeb wars”. He would even, he said, be comfortable working with Kareena Kapoor whose sister Karisma he once dated. “We haven’t been approached for any film together… but if we are and we both like the script, we’d love to work together.”
Abhishek has been endorsing
for a while now. And why shouldn’t he? With the recent hit
to his credit, and a TV game show in his kitty, he can very well relax. And not taking on something serious is his way of doing so. “I can’t handle anything serious unless it’s a Ram Gopal Varma film where I stand in a corner and brood. (Grins) Then, in the next film, I get shot. The reason I took on
(his current show) was because it allows for ‘live’ interactivity with a 200-plus studio audience and lets me be myself.” The actor admits that dad Amitabh Bachchan gave him a fair share of advice on how to go about his television debut. “He’s advised me to be polite with my guests, take it easy and be myself.”
Ask him if
co-star John Abraham is among his dream guests on the show, and Abhishek chuckles, “For two years, our dostana has won us the Jodi No 1 Award. But frankly, I’m not looking to score a hat-trick. (Coyly) Come to think of it, John could be a guest on the Valentine’s Day episode, no?
(it would be fun) though I don’t know how women would react to the idea. (With a straight face) Between you and me, Colors offered me the role of the grown-up Jagya in Balika Vadhu. But according to a survey, women didn’t want me to do the show while men wanted to see me on it.
, Karan (Johar) has changed the way the society looks at me. Men chase me more than women these days. (Bursts into laughter) Hey, I was just joking!”
