Bollywood ga-ga over Abhishek`s comedy in `Bol Bachchan`
Mumbai: Abhishek Bachchan has wowed film fraternity with his rib-tickling performance in `Bol Bachchan` - Kunal Kohli said he is "phenomenal" in the movie, while Ashutosh Gowariker found him "outstanding".
Rohit Shetty`s `Bol Bachchan` was screened for Bollywood Thursday. The guest liked the slapstick comedy as well as Ajay Devgn and others performances, but Abhishek impressed them the most. The film has hit screens Friday.
This is what they have to say:
Kunal Kohli: It was absolutely hilarious. I think Rohit Shetty and team have done an outstanding job. Abhishek is phenomenal, Ajay is also fantastic. Everyone has done a great job. I was laughing so much, my jaws are still hurting.
Ashutosh Gowariker: Very good, a riotous film, very funny. I think Ajay and Abhishek are brilliant in the film. The entire cast is brilliant but I found Abhishek outstanding.
Suniel Shetty: Mind blowing! Abhishek`s best performance. Abhishek at his best and I was reminded of Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) in his young days. Ajay is also fantastic. The whole film is outstanding and according to me, it should be the year`s biggest grosser. I don`t believe in Rs.100 crore or Rs.200 crore, but it is a true entertainer.
Prakash Jha: It`s sheer madness, lovely, brilliant film. He (Rohit Shetty) has surpassed his `Golmaal`.
Meanwhile, Abhishek is overwhelmed with the response.
"So far the response has been fantastic. You can see I am smiling. I am very, very happy that initial screenings have gone well. The audience will watch it now and fingers crossed," the 36-year-old said at the screening.
When told that his work is being appreciated the most, Abhishek said: "Thank you for saying this. I hope the audience also loves it. Everyone has worked hard and it feels great when you ask such questions."
The film also stars Asin Thottumkal and Prachi Desai.
