Road To 20: Abhishek Bachchan says Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s role in Raavan was awe-inspiring

Abhishek Bachchan and his recent series of posts to celebrate 20 years in the industry is something we’ve never witnessed before. With each year and his projects, Abhishek Bachchan has been sharing trivia and insight regarding every project that has left us amazed. Each day, Abhishek has been making it a point to share details of one year each and now, he is half-way through. Speaking of the year 2010, Abhishek Bachchan spoke about one of the most difficult projects, Raavan with his missus, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Khelein Hum Je Jaan Se with Deepika Padukone.

Road To 20 Abhishek Bachchan says Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s role in Raavan was awe-inspiring

He shared details of both the movies starting with Raavan and the caption read, “#RoadTo20 Year-2010 #Raavan #KheleinHumJeJaanSe Raavan has been the most challenging film both physically and emotionally for me in my career. It’s a wonder how the team managed to pull it off. Mani and I reunited for our 3rd film together. By far the most ambitious story, for him to execute and tell ( in my opinion ). My 8th film with the missus. She was an absolute trooper during the making of the film. The dedication, and sheer strength it took for her to perform the complexities of her role is just awe inspiring. And she did it all with her trademark smile. To think that she had to perform each scene ( regardless of how emotionally and physically challenging ) baffles me. And to do it twice each time- as we were shooting the Hindi and Tamil versions simultaneously. Huge salute! Raavan also gave me the opportunity to work with @the_real_chiyaan I’ve been a huge fan of his ( must have watched Dhool- his Tamil film over 17 times ) he has always been so loving towards me and I learnt so much by just observing him. A great actor! A film truly ahead of its time.”

Speaking about Khelein Hum Je Jaan Se, he wrote, “Later that year was Khelein hum je jaan se with my dear friend @ashutoshgowariker I had 1st met Ashu on the sets of my fathers film Indrajeet in which he was acting way back in the 1991. We tried several times to work together and finally managed with #KHJJS A HUGE cast comprising of @deepikapadukone , my childhood best friend @sikandarkher and a host of others was a story very close to my heart. When Ashu told me the story of Surya Sen and what he managed with 60 of his students, I felt compelled as a patriotic Indian to be a part of the telling of their immense courage and sacrifice. I’m so proud that we could bring their story to life and tell it to a new generation who might not have known about it. Wonderful vivid memories of the making of this film. The premiere in Kolkata and our shenanigans post the show with our cast and crew is a night I will never forget. What fun!”
