Film production is a tough, thankless job: Abhishek

Oct 18, 2014 NR

Actor-producer Abhishek Bachchan, who was the producer of the National Award winning film "Paa", says he is not a big fan of producing films, and that it's a difficult and thankless job.

"I hate producing films. It's just that I got lucky (with 'Paa'). But I hate it", Abhishek, who played a reel father to his real father Amitabh Bachchan in the 2009 movie, said.

"During 'Paa', I had a very difficult time because the producer in me came in the way of the actor in me. I would be more comfortable in producing a film without me acting in it. If I have to produce a film in which I am acting, that would need a lot of preparation and organisation from my part", he added.

Abhishek's next project as a producer is "Shamitabh", which again stars his megastar father.

"'Shamitabh' is more enjoyable because I am just the producer in that. Production is a very difficult job and it's a very thankless job", said the 38-year-old.
