It was in an interview with Rolling Stones India, that Abhishek revealed it took him two years to get his first film.

He said, “It took me over two years to get my first film. A lot of people would think that being Mr. Bachchan’s son, people are going to be lined up around the block. No, they weren’t. I spoke to almost each and every director before starting, and they did not decide to work with me, and that’s fine.”
