People think I am a much better actor than I actually am: Abhishek Bachchan

It’s been a long time since Abhishek Bachchan delivered a hit at box-office. His hugely anticipated movies ‘Raavan’, ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’, ‘Game’, ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ and most recent ‘Players’ all have been flops at the box-office.

The actor said that nobody ever plans on making flops and when they happen you just have to deal with them.

“I think you have to deal with it (flops). Thankfully, you carry on working. It is never nice to talk about it...It is never a pleasant experience. Nobody wants to make an unsuccessful film. Everybody works hard to make a film successful,” said Abhishek Bachchan to PTI.

“As an actor I made a conscious decision that I don`t want any excuses (for films not doing well). I don`t want to say the editor did not edit it properly or this or that person did not do their work properly. I don`t want to point fingers at anybody. I want complete responsibility by saying that I did everything that I could do,” he added.

The actor, who made his debut in 2000 with ‘Refugee’, said that people think he is a better actor than he actually is.

“I think I was given too much due. I think people think I am a much better actor than actually I am. I think I have lot more to do and improve. I think people are too kind to me,” he said.

“I am very harsh on myself. As an actor I am my worst critic? I feel I have been given too much due, I am not acting fake by saying this. But I genuinely believe that, I feel I have lot more to do and learn,” added Abhishek Bachchan.

The actor said that he only takes in one criterion before accepting.

“I have one parameter and a condition and that is more important. That is -- your heart should tell you to do a film. If that is not there then I won`t do a film. I have never worked from my mind...Thinking strategically. Be it the biggest director and a very good script, but if my heart is not with it I will not do it,” he concluded.

The actor will be seen next in ‘Bol Bachchan’ directed by Rohit Shetty, which is inspired from cult classic ‘Gol Maal’ by Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

Along with Abhishek Bachchan the movie also stars Ajay Devgn, Asin and Prachi Desai. The movie is all set to release on July 13.
