According to Abhishek Bachchan, he keeps a scrapbook of all the criticism and negative feedback he receives so he may draw inspiration from it and grow better.
Abhishek Bachchan has seen his fair share of highs and lows during the course of a 20-year career in the entertainment business. He has played both highly praised and award-winning parts as well as performances that received negative reviews. The actor recently admitted in an interview that he really saves a scrapbook of the negative feedback and criticism that he receives for motivation.
When Abhishek was filming his 2002 movie Shararat, he first discussed his tendency of accepting criticism as feedback to get better.
He stated he still does it, but in a different way, in an interview with Bollywood Hungama. “I used to hang it on the mirror in my bathroom. I don’t have a mirror anymore, it’s completely covered. However, I now put it in a scrapbook,” he added. Abhishek responded, “I think you should choose everything because everyone’s opinion counts and everyone is your audience,” when asked which of the numerous reviews he follows.
The actor further disclosed that his father, renowned actor Amitabh Bachchan, offered him the suggestion to maintain a record of the negative evaluations. Keep it there, read it every day, and go out and prove them wrong. Use it as motivation. That’s what he said. When they told me to better myself, I went a step further and said, “Let me read about how to develop myself every morning and actually work on it,” said Abhishek.
Breathe Into the Shadows, Abhishek’s web series is presently in its second season. On Prime Video, it debuted last Wednesday. Amit Sadh, Saiyami Kher, Nithya Menen, and Navin Kasturia are also featured in the program.
