    Says a source, “Abhishek has been giving special attention to his dad"s films.

    He not only sits in on the story sittings and script discussions of Amitabh"s films but also discusses his father"s remuneration with producers to ensure that his dad is not shortchanged. Abhishek goes through every detail with a fine comb. Bachchan Sr is comfortable with the beta"s assistance. The proud papa feels Abhishek has great business sense."

    Amitabh admits that Abhishek is has been actively involved in all the decisions regarding his films, “This is a normal practice in any family. Every father wishes that his son assist him in his work and vice versa. Abhishek is a sensible mature adult and an obedient son and it"s my greatest joy that he does so. And why now? Abhishek has been doing that from the time when he was a little kid."

    When asked if Abhishek also helps select projects and decide on his fees, the Big B confesses, “Yes." But he does not remember any particular film where Abhishek"s opinion proved to be useful, to him? “Every advice and opinion of Abhishek is invaluable to me. I am not comfortable responding to these questions as I find them too personal and intrusive."
