Abhishek Bachchan is all set to make his digital debut with his show called Breathe on Amazon Prime Video. Since the industry is high on criticisms after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, Abhishek was asked in an interview whether it was difficult for him to be called as Amitabh Bachchan's son. To which, he said, "I’ve never thought about it,” he confesses and adds, “I’m the son of my father. At home, he’s that, he has never wanted it to be anything else, my mother never allowed it to be anything else. I’m the son of my father, I’m a colleague of a legend. That’s the way I look at it.”

 
Whether Bollywood is all about love and glamour and fame, Abhishek disagrees, "This place is not about film premieres and parties. It’s a lot of hard work, and a lot more. Unfortunately, our audiences only see the glamorous side of it, and very seldom get to see the hard work, blood, sweat and tears we put into it.
 
He further added, "As far as I’m concerned, I am what I am today because of this industry, and the audiences. They have made my family, and given our family everything. That’s very sacred to me. We also need to understand that this is more than just parties and premieres. You should come and spend time with us on set, there’s so much hard work put in by everyone to put out a film. I do understand there’s this huge glamorous image, which is fair enough. There’s a lot more to it than just that."
