Of late, Abhishek Bachchan has been busy promoting his newly released film left, right and centre. Post its release, too, he has been giving interviews, talking about the film, the cast and his journey, personal life and so on. In one such interview, Abhishek opened up about why he had to drop out of college. He revealed that he dropped out because his now-megastar father Amitabh Bachchan was then going through a financial crisis and he felt he needed to be there, though there was only so much he could do. Candidly speaking, Abhishek said, 'Well, truth be told, I left university - I was studying in Boston University. I had declared my major as liberal arts, and then I majored in performing arts. And I left my education because my father was going through this really rough time, financially. He had started this business called ABCL.' Junior Bachchan disclosed that after coming back to India, he started helping his father around the company. He also went on to share how his father sat him down one night in his study and told him about their depleting finances. He said that his father told him his movies were not doing well at the box office and he wasn't getting any work. He then went on to share how his father decided to take matters into his own hands and approach Yash Chopra the very next day to ask for work. He added, 'Look, I don't have a job, nobody is giving me work anymore, my movies aren't working, and I've come to ask you to please give me a film to work in.' Big B was offered a pivotal role in Chopra's next big film and from there on, he was unstoppable. Today, at 78, he is a megastar and everyone knows him and respects him. With age, his performances are only getting better and we can't wait to see what Big B has to offer to the Hindi film industry next.
