Abhishek Bachchan often speaks about his family in public. He has recently been receiving additional praise for his most recent film, “Ghoomer,” which was just released. In a recent podcast interview with Raj Shamani, he genuinely spoke up about how sacred his last name is to him because it was carried on by both his father, Amitabh Bachchan, and his grandpa, Shri Harivash Rai Bachchan. He also revealed how Aishwarya Rai is educating their child about their family’s Legacy.
The actor remarked, “My surname is sacred to me. I am whatever I am today because of my surname, which was given to me by my grandfather, and my father did a fantastic job of furthering that name and the dignity associated with it.”
The actor further mentioned that his daughter Aaradhya has been receiving the same instruction from their wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and he remarked, “I see my wife teach that to my daughter. We don’t want to put pressure on her, but she must be respectful of what her father, her dada ji, and her pardada ji (her grandfather, great-grandfather) have done and achieved, and she must respect that and never do anything to deplete that.”
The actor said that his wife had been voluntarily undertaking the laborious lifting. In an interview, she said, “Sometimes, unfortunately, you know you’re so consumed at work that you don’t get to spend as much time as you’d want. So back home, you know, Aishwarya does all the heavy lifting, and I love her and thank her for that, and she does it so selflessly, and she just does a great job, so you know, I’m eternally grateful.”
Abhishek Bachchan, who went on to further describe his daughter Aaradhya, wants to be treated equally and doesn’t just blindly follow directions; instead, she makes the appropriate inquiries. “Each newer generation, the one thing they all do is question, because that whole sense of hierarchy is hardly there. In today’s generation, when you tell them to do something, they’ll ask why. They’re not being disrespectful; they genuinely want to know: What do you mean hierarchy? Talk to me like an equal’,” he said.
