Abhishek refuses to play younger Big B
30 Jan 2008
Turns down offer to play a young Bachchan in Shoojit Sircarís next 
Abhishek Bachchan got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play the role of a young Amitabh Bachchan  in Shoojit Sircarís untitled film but he turned it down.

He was obviously approached because his frame and features are very similar to that of the senior Bachchan. But ABís baby had a few reservations. 

The script demands that Amitabh play a character that ages through the years. Says a source, ďMr Bachchan plays the role of a 40-year-old guy in the first half and later, the plot takes a 20-year leap and heís seen as a man in his sixties. 

Abhishek was approached for the role of the guy in his forties. The script was narrated to him but he wasnít too excited.Ē 

No pressure, please

Explaining why Abhishek turned down the role, the source adds, ďHe loved the script and the character. But he didnít have too many scenes in the film. 

Most of the film revolves around Mr Bachchanís older character. Also he felt that if he had to do a film with his dad, the role had to be substantial. He didnít want to carry the pressure of playing the same role as his dad for a role that didnít have a lot of substance.Ē 

It is believed that Kunal Kapoor was offered the same role after Abhishek, but he refused it as well. With both Abhishek and Kunal refusing to play the younger role, itís left to the senior Bachchan to do the role himself.
