Bollywood’s well-known actor Abhishek Bachchan has always been vocal about his love and appreciation for his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In a latest media chat, the actor emphasized the difference between ‘massy’ and ‘realistic’ acting. Abhishek revealed that while both require elite skill sets, critics often tend to look down upon commercial acting. But he believes that commercial acting isn’t easy either. While speaking about the same, Abhishek Bachchan brought up numerous examples and praised Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s dancing skills, while challenging the critics to try and pull off her brilliant dance moves.

Furthermore, in a chat, Abhishek Bachchan revealed that a lot of his colleagues have managed to strike a balance between commercial and realistic acting and that it is not easy. “Please don’t be mistaken, there is an elite skill set required to pull that off. A lot of the time, we look down upon commercial acting, it’s not easy. I dare anybody to do what Rajini uncle does. It’s not possible, that’s why there’s only one Rajinikanth.” He further told that Aamir Khan, Kamal Haasan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, and several other actors have mastered the balance between mainstream acting and realism.

Abhishek challenged critics to ‘dance in Alaska in -30 degrees in a chiffon saree’ and that if they manage to do so, he’ll be very impressed. Further revealing how difficult it is, he also dared them to try and ace dance moves as gracefully as Aishwarya and Madhuri Dixit did in Nimbooda Nimbooda. “You do ‘Nimbooda Nimbooda’ like Aishwarya did, or you do Devdas and pull it off with that kind of élan and grace that Aishwarya and Madhuri did. Try and do it, it’s not easy,” he said.
