Abhishek Bachchan’s dedicated involvement as the producer of Paa impresses director Balki

Paa

As the Bachchans are preparing to release their first home production after a gap of four years (Viruddh in 2005 was the last AB Corporation Ltd release), they plan to host a grand event in the next two weeks where Big B’s look in Paa will be unveiled by the producer of the film, Abhishek Bachchan, who plays Amitabh’s father in Paa.

Abhishek seems to have swept the director, Balki, off his feet. Revealing the plans for the event, Balki says, “We will have a life-size hoarding of Amitji as Auro, the 12-year-old character he plays in Paa which Abhishek will formally reveal.” Even though the look has already leaked out, Balki is unfazed, “What has been revealed so far is nothing. I challenge anyone to recognize Amitji as Paa if they already don’t know who he is.”

The unveiling ceremony will take place after Diwali, the details of which are being taken care of by Abhishek. Indeed, Paa has seen the coming of age of Abhishek as a producer. Balki tells us, “If Paa disclosed an unexplored side of Amitji on screen; it has also revealed Abhishek’s skills as a behind-the-scene administrator.

Everything from the locations to the costumes and food were supervised by Abhishek. It seems that Abhishek is ready to shoulder the responsibility as a co-owner of AB Corp Ltd, which is well equipped to bounce back with Paa.

“As far as I am concerned, Abhishek was our producer in Paa,” Balki concludes. The scion of the Bachchan family has been keeping accounts making sure the film stays within budget.
