Talking about flop films is unpleasant: Abhishek Bachchan
His last release (in January) was Abbas-Mustan's 'Players', an official remake of Hollywood crime thriller 'The Italian Job'. Despite heavy promotion and an ensemble star cast, 'Players', one of the most anticipated films of 2012, failed at the box office.
"I think you have to deal with it (flops). Thankfully, you carry on working. It is never nice to talk about it...it is never a pleasant experience. Nobody wants to make an unsuccessful film. Everybody works hard to make a film successful," Abhishek told us.
"As an actor I made a conscious decision that I don't want any excuses (for films not doing well). I don't want to say the editor did not edit it properly or this or that person did not do their work well. I don't want to point fingers at anybody. I want complete responsibility by saying that I did everything that I could do," he added.
The 36-year-old actor has delivered quite a few flops in the recent past, including Farhan Akhtar's home production 'Game', Ashutosh Gowariker's 'Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey', Mani Ratnam's 'Raavan', Goldie Behl's 'Drona', Aditya Chopra's 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag', among others.
However, his performance in films like 'Paa', 'Dhoom' series, 'Guru', 'Sarkar' and 'Dostana' have been appreciated.
Asked if he has got his due as an actor, Abhishek, who made his Bollywood debut in 2000, said, "I think I was given much more than what was due. People think I am a much better actor than actually I am. I think I have lot more to do and improve. People are too kind to me."
