This dude doesn't talk much. And he doesn't even think he is a dude.

You tell Abhishek Bachchan that girls drool over him and he says, "Is it?"

HT City caught up with this witty chatter when he was in town as the new ambassador of Omega watches.

Scared, of Dad! "I'll always be scared of dad, no matter how many times I work with him." Yeah. You can't help if your father is none other than the Big B. The two will soon be seen in Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and Sanjay Gupta's Shoot Out At Lokhandwala.

Brick by brick: "Beggars can't be choosers," says Abhishek about his choice of films. He has an enviable line up ahead — besides KANK, he will be seen in Yash Raj Films' Dhoom2, JP Dutta's Umraao Jaan and Mani Ratnam's Guru.

Umraao's Jaan: "The fact that I was required to walk, talk and behave in a particular fashion added to the essence of the character from an era gone by," says Abhishek about his role in Umraao Jaan.

Gossip, what's that? About the gossips related to his love life, Abhishek says, "I don't react to gossips because I can't afford to do so on a daily basis." And he assures us: "The day anything happens, I'll be the first one to officiate it." So, keep waiting, girls!
