Abhishek BachchanBollywood star son Abhishek Bachchan, who is making his television debut with the game show National Bingo Night doesn't feel odd about being compared to his legendary father Amitabh, who created history on the small screen with Kaun Banega Crorepati.

"I am his son... if you are not going to compare me with him... then whom are you going to compare me to. Who doesn't want to be compared with him. He is the best that we have and will have," Abhishek told PTI.

The actor said that he does not intend to outdo or compete with his father.

"You can't allow comparisons to deter you. I do what I believe in. I am his son and biggest fan. I don't compete with my father and I don't think any son does that. I am happy to stand behind and support him," he said.

On National Bingo Night, which premiers on January 23 on Colors, Abhishek said it will take the genre of game shows to a different league.

"Television has blossomed wonderfully. Fiction and non-fiction shows have made a mark for themselves. But the concept and interactive format of 'Bingo' attracted me to the show," he said. Also, being himself on the show was scary, he said.

"In films, you review the movie and the character. But, here judgement will be passed on me as the person," Abhishek added.
