Junior Bachchan, however, said that there is a part of his life as a son, husband and father which is private.

Working with senior actors

I wonder why Aamir is painted out to be this monster, he’s a fine actor and person too. Since he’s senior to me, I have been in awe of him. I remember Uday and me were always up to mischief during the shoot. But in Aamir’s presence, we would clam up and start behaving like these well-behaved guys (laughs).But as time passed by, we realised that he’s a pretty cool guy too. I have worked with Ajay Devgan in Bol Bachchan, he’s like an elder brother. Likewise with Shah Rukh Khan with whom I am doing Farah Khan’s next. Since he’s close to my dad, he’s family to me.

Money wise

I started off as an assistant director. So, I understand the economics of a film. The criteria for any filmmaker is his film’s box-office success. Even if a film is not completely commercial, it has to be viable enough to cover its cost. Like, when I produced Paa, we decided to stick to a budget of 20 crores. It was a risky proposition because we were not portraying dad in his larger than life avatar (Amitabh Bachchan played a progeria patient) and his popular voice was also altered to suit the character. Thankfully, it paid off.

No direction

I cannot become a director because my knowledge about the medium is limited. Its simply not my cup of tea.

Media scrutiny

I understand that as public figures, our lives will always be under the microscope. Once I leave my house, I am public property. But there is a part of my life as a son, husband and father which is private. I wouldn’t like the media to cross that line.

New talent

I feel newcomers are doing a great job. Most of them are confident and doing a wonderful job on screen. If Adi (Aditya Chopra)had to consider other actors for Dhoom, I would suggest Arjun Kapoor for my role and Varun Dhawan for Uday’s role.
