Sharing how Amitabh Bachchan continues to work as hard as he did in his younger days, Abhishek said, “When I was growing up, there were weeks on end when I wouldn’t see my father, and he was sleeping in the bed about 10 feet away from me because he used to leave for work before I woke up in the morning, and he’d come back after I’d gone to bed. So, although we were staying under the same roof, you don’t get to see him and you realize that’s how hard they had to work.”

Abhishek shares Amitabh’s daily routine

Abhishek shared Amitabh Bachchan’s busy schedule as he is filming for Kaun Banega Crorepati. He revealed that Amitabh shoots for two episodes a day and still rehearses for each and every episode ‘just in case’ he forgets his lines. He said that though his shoot starts at 11 am, he reaches the sets at 7:30 am in order to rehearse. “He will get home at around 11:30-12 (at night), shower, have his dinner and then he gets on to his blog, he will be answering all his messages on Twitter and will be pushing out and saying ‘Ghoomer dekho, Ghoomer dekho’. He is too sweet,” said Abhishek.
