“Next morning, I went to (late filmmaker) Yash Chopra and explained my problem and told him that I neither have money nor work. It was then he gave me a role in 'Mohabbatein' and then I started again from that point,” he added. Amitabh played the role of a strict father and professor, who doesn't believe in love, in the musical romantic drama, which released in 2000. At the session, he also recited his late father Harivanshrai Bachchan's poem “Madhushala” and reminisced about his father. The actor says his lessons are his driving force.
"My father was in a government job and he went for another job at night due to which he came home late. When I opened the door for him, I often asked him 'Why is he so late?' and to which he replied 'Paisa badi mushkil se milta hai' (You don't get money easily)." "So, when I entered show business, I used to do two to three shifts and reached home late. Then my father asked me the same question and complained about my late arrival. My answer was the same: 'Paisa badi mushkil se milta hai, babuji'. This is one of the many teachings that helps me in my life," he said. Meanwhile, the actor has wrapped up shooting for "Piku” and is currently busy with “Wazir”.
