Abhishek Bachchan indulged in a Twitter conversation with Akshaye Rathi, a film exhibitor . The latter had taken a jibe at actors comparing them with Akshay Kumar’s speed and style of working in the industry. He had claimed that other celebs need to plan better.
Disagreeing with Akshaye Rathi’s words that mocked other actors, Abhishek Bachchan had replied to him saying that comparing two different individuals was unfair on his part. “Amazing how @akshaykumar finishes off the shoot of an entire film in the amount of time that other stars take to learn a skill which they need to act out in a small scene or so! And more often than not, his film turns out to be the bigger hit! More actors need to ‘plan’ better!” Akshaye Rathi had tweeted out to which the Refugee actor replied saying, “Not fair! Each to their own. Different people are motivated by different things. And have a different pace at doing things.”
Defending his stance, Rathi said that in order to boost the ecosystem of cinema culture one needed to generate a lot of work. “Chief, under normal circumstances…that’s perfectly cool. Right now, the ONLY way to revive the whole ecosystem is by generating a lot of work! And that can only happen if all our top actors / film makers push up the tempo. If nothing else, it will atleast give people hope!”
Abhishek Bachchan disagreed again saying that one should not make films for the sake of making films. “Good work begets more work! Cannot be making films form just the sake of making films. In the long run you will end up doing more damage to the industry. It’s a bit of a catch 22,” the Ludo actor had replied.
