Abhishek had talked about his performances

Speaking with PTI, Abhishek Bachchan had said, "I hate all my performances and hope I don't start liking them. I believe that the day you start liking your work is the day you become complacent. I review my work, I always find something I can improve on. I think it's the same with all actors. We are always trying to better ourselves from our last outing. So I am not a big fan of my own work."

Abhishek had spoken about Aamir Khan

The interview, which took place ahead of the release of Dhoom 3, also saw Abhishek praising Aamir Khan. He had said, "...what an honour for any actor to get the opportunity to work with him. You get to learn so much by just observing him. He is so helpful, caring and giving as an actor and it's been a great experience working with him."

Abhishek's over two-decade-long career

Abhishek began his career with the drama film Refugee (2000) opposite Kareena Kapoor. It was followed by many unsuccessful films. His career witnessed a change in 2004 with the action film Dhoom. He received critical acclaim for his performances in the dramas Yuva (2004), Sarkar (2005), and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006). His biggest successes as a sole male lead came with the comedy Bunty Aur Babli (2005) and the drama Guru (2007).

Abhishek's other commercially successful films include Dus (2005), Dhoom 2 (2006), Dhoom 3 (2013), Dostana (2008), Bol Bachchan (2012), and Housefull 3 (2016). He has also starred in streaming ventures such as Breathe: Into the Shadows (2020), Ludo (2020) and Dasvi (2022).
