Abhishek Bachchan recalls working on Bol Bachchan, says slapstick comedy is unbelievably tough

Abhishek Bachchan recently completed 20 years in the Hindi film industry. The actor has shared many memories of working on various films on his Instagram in the recent past. Abhishek also made his digital debut recently in Amazon Prime Video's Breathe- Into the Shadows.

 
However, the one genre he still thinks is tough is slapstick comedy. The actor recently recalled working on Bol Bachchan and said, "Slapstick comedy is unbelievably tough and my huge respect to the artistes who manage to pull it off effortlessly. A lot of them were in the film with us in Bol Bachchan."
 
"Comedy is all about the timing of your co-stars. It doesn't matter how great an actor you are, if the actor opposite you is not reciprocating the timing, the way it should be then your performance is going to fall flat. You are least dependent on your talent and most dependent on your co-stars and that makes comedy all the more challenging. Bol Bachchan was a challenge for me. There were times where I was doubtful and I actually felt that Rohit (Rohit Shetty) might replace me because I wasn't able to understand the level of energy that he required, " he added.
 
He further said, "It was August 27, 2004, when Dhoom released and the verdict was out. By then I was preempting failure. Adi (Aditya Chopra) sat me down and said – 'You just gave your first hit'. I vividly remember, the first thing I did was gasp for breath and a relief."
 
On Saturday Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan moved to Nanavati Hospital after they tested positive for Coronavirus.
