Mehra all praise for Bachchan Jr

MUMBAI: Filmmaker Rak-eysh Omprakash Mehra, who directed Abhishek Bachchan for the first time in Delhi-6, says he is a “pedigree” actor and is far more “blessed” than his parents Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan.

“In terms of balance, Abhishek is far more blessed than both his parents. He is a thoroughbred and a pedigree. He has styles from both his mother and father but possesses the sensitivity and softness of his mother,” said Mehra.

Mehra, who worked with Amitabh in Aks, was also all praise for Abhishek’s acting style. “Abhishek is in his nascent stage as an actor but he has got a whole lot of experience as an actor. He delves into the character and lately he’s started doing that more often. I remember while shooting for Delhi-6, I couldn’t believe that it’s Abhishek when he completely got into the character of Roshan (the protagonist)”.
