Aishwarya Rai Bachchan unveiled the first look of Summer 2007 . This movie marks the debut of Kiron and Anupam Kherâ€™s son Sikandar. Bachchan Bahu Aishwarya was present as a special guest. Aishwarya spoke to Indiatimes Moveis about Sikandar, life after marriage and also about her forthcoming films.
What came to your mind when you saw Sikander onscreen?
Sikku is full of energy and full of life. We have seen him in person so now itâ€™s an amazing feeling to watch him onscreen. He is like Abhishekâ€™s younger brother. Thus itâ€™s a very personal sentiment and one of the reasons for me to attend this function.
What would you like to say about him?
I have seen him on the sets of Devdas. He is a very hard working and sincere guy. He worked as an assistant to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Though he knew us personally, he was professional and always concentrated on his work. Sikku is good but he has to work hard. All I can say is â€œSikku finally you joined the bandwagonâ€.
Do you give any advice to Sikandar, since he is like family to you and Abhishek?
He can get the best advice from home as his parents are such fantastic and talented actors. He can get advice from them. Moreover as family we will be always with him. Abhi canâ€™t be here as he is in Miami shooting, but his love and blessings are always with Sikku. One thing I can guarantee you, he will not leave Sikku like that, he will rag Sikku afterwards.
You know him as Sikku but after watching this promo how do you see him as an actor?
He is a regular guy with aspirations and talent. Now that he has entered Bollywood, I feel he needs to gain experience. He has joined the bandwagon and so Sikku has to work hard.
The film is about Summer 2007. And you got married last year so how was the last summer for you?
Summer 2007 will always be special to me, Abhi and our families as we got married. And off course for Sikku too, He was there for our sangeet and all of us had a blast together. Last summer was really very special to me.
How was it working with Abhishek especially after marriage?
For me working with Abhi has always been wonderful experience. When we are working we are artists. We know what is required professionally. We love our craft so we put our soul to it. But the best part of working together is that when you are not in front of the camera, we can spend more time together.
What are you looking forward to this year?
As of now Sarkar Raj and Pink Panther are complete. I am yet to start shooting for my other films. I will be doing Shankarâ€™s Robot and Mani Ratnamâ€™s next.
It is believed that with by Shankarâ€™s Robot you have become the highest paid actress of Bollywood.
I have always been a professional as an actor. I donâ€™t believe in number games. I believe in my work. I am a professional and other things donâ€™t matters to me.
Thereâ€™s a buzz that you are writing your biography.
Have I ever made any statement regarding that? I havenâ€™t spoken about it so how can it be true?
