Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who was last seen with actor Asin in Umesh Shukla’s All is Well, says the next few months will keep him busy. The 39-year-old, who also owns a kabaddi team, says that films and tournaments don’t allow him to take it easy.

"When you are promoting your film, you are engulfed in that, plus I have my kabaddi team too…I will also be shooting overseas for my upcoming film,” he says, adding, “In the film industry; we have no such thing as weekends. In the film world, everyone works every day. There are no holidays,” he says. Abhishek, who has been a part of the industry for over a decade now, says he still gets butterflies in his stomach before the release of his film.

The actor adds that it is important to be a little nervous before your film hits screens. “It (the release of your film) should (make you nervous). If it doesn’t, it means you have become complacent about your job. There is so much at stake with every film. You can’t take it for granted,” says Abhishek.

As for the public scrutiny of his films or personal life, Abhishek says that he doesn’t let rumours about his personal life or profession get to him. “You should concern yourself about doing your work in the best possible way and improve yourself. If you keep looking at the negativity, it will sap your all your energy,” he says.
