Rohan Sippy on his new album with buddy Abhishek Bachchan... and more
1. Baby steps:
As an actor, Abhishek is still taking baby steps, though he has matured. A lot lies ahead, provided he takes the right decisions. He is as old as his father was when Zanjeer released — shows how far he has to go.
2. Crazy about jammin’:
Music comes naturally to Abhishek. Right here, right now (Bluffmaster) was as a great experience, it so was Abhishek. It comes from the huge repertoire of music that he listens to and is crazy about.
3 Pop goes the movie star:
Vishal, Shekhar and I have just recorded seven tracks for our forthcoming, yet-untitled album. Abhishek will sing in it, of course. I’ll say no actor could have done 10 per cent of the job he’s doing in the album.
4 Walking in his dad’s footsteps:
It was inevitable, and I guess his baptism happened even before he knew it. What makes it easier for Abhishek is that he’s best friends with his dad. They share interests — music for example.
5 Mixing work and friendship:
It’s always a difficult thing, but we seem to have managed that. More so, because he is a very ‘from the heart’ kind of guy — someone who is very much there for you.
