GQ India, for this month’s cover story, asks Abhishek Bachchan about kids and how many he wants, he says, “I’ll be happy with two kids. I mean I have a sister, so maybe that’s where it comes from. I feel they are blessings of God, and it should just happen as and when. You know, whenever it’s meant to be. I am against the whole thing of ‘Let’s plan it’, you know, ‘We’re trying for a baby’.
“I find that a bit weird. I don’t want to have that vision in my head of somebody else. And now I’ve finally decided that I’m that sort of a guy. It’s really none of your business. I find it very intrusive. I really don’t want to know when other people are having babies; why would you want to know when I’m having babies?”
Bachchan claims to be very shy in reality, “I grew up in a boarding school where there were 300 students in total. So everybody was very closely knit. I spent nine years there, so, you know, even if you had a girlfriend, she was in your class. You interacted on an everyday basis, so there wasn’t really an opportunity to go out and do the whole dating thing. I never ever did that, and I was way too shy to go speak to a girl.”
As for advice on dealing with women Bachchan says, “Don’t ever give women an opportunity to ask you how they’re looking. Be it your sister, your mother, your girlfriend or your wife. Don’t let it come to the point where they’re asking, “How am I looking in this?” That’s a trick question. Because if you’re honest, then it’s “Oh! So you don’t like me in this? Am I looking too fat? Is my make-up…?”
“There is no right answer… The idea is to tell them how they’re looking before they can ask you their question. That’s the trick, guys! And I will only say this to a men’s magazine!”
