Abhishek Bachchan is currently busy promoting Ghoomer. The actor will be seen playing the role of a coach in the upcoming film. Abhishek as a coach stars opposite Saiyami Kher in Ghoomer. Ghoomer is inching closer to its release date. The actor’s fans are excited to see him in a never-seen-before avatar. Amid this, in a new interview, Abhishek was asked about young actors’ obsession with six-pack abs. The actor made it clear that he is not a fan of young actors who focus on getting six-pack abs instead of working on their acting skills.

Abhishek reacts to young actors getting six-pack abs

In an interview with Dainik Bhaskar, Abhishek was asked if he will ever get six-pack abs and he said that he would do it if a role demands it. The actor said, “Jay Dixit (Abhishek’s character in Dhoom) was a cop who had to be fit, but he was not the kind who’d take out his shirt and flaunt six-pack packs.”

He further added, “I get upset when I see this obsession with six-pack abs.” Abhishek then gave an example and said, “Look at Aamir Khan – he was so fit in Dhoom 3 and he looked fat in a few portions of Dangal. Young actors these days believe they can become actors just by getting six-pack abs. Bro, focus on your language… work on your acting skills. This is what make actors, not well-built bodies.”

A few days ago, Sunny Deol too took a dig at young male actors getting six-pack abs. “We are here to act, not to do bodybuilding,” he had said.

Coming back to Ghoomer, Abhishek and Saiyami starrer trailer was unveiled by the makers a few days ago. It gave a glimpse of what to expect from the film. Ghoomer also stars Angad Bedi and Shabana Azmi. It is directed by R Balki and is slated to release on 18th August.

Apart from that, Abhishek is also a part of Ajay Devgn starrer Bholaa sequel. He made an appearance in the first part which was released on 30th March, 2023.
