When Abhishek Bachchan Opened Up About Constantly Being Compared With His Superstar Parents
"At the start of my career, I was very confused when people were dedicating so much time and energy talking about the privilege that was afforded to me because of the home I was born. First and foremost, I did not choose the family I was born. It used to affect me because I used to feel bad for my parents. At the end of the day, I'm a professional. I do something which evokes a response from the public and I'm well aware of that and perfectly fine with it. They are also actors that work in the same industry as their son. I am not going to equate myself to their talent. But as a parent, I think it must be terrible for them to go through all this," Abhishek Bachchan had said at India Today Conclave East 2018.

Nothing else matters to him," said Abhishek Bachchan.
