Despite being a versatile performer, not to forget an agile dancer, actor Arshad Warsi’s career has been in the wings for most part. The forthcoming release, Bachchan Pandey, stars him along with actors Akshay Kumar, Kirti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez. At a press conference held to publicise the March18 launch, the actors were all asked to name their “godfather” in the industry.

Without batting an eyelid, Arshad stated that Amitabh Bachchan remains the Big Father for him. “He got me into the line. My first film, Tere Mere Sapne, was an ABCL venture. However, after the debut, the company abandoned me,” he joked. The film was produced by Amitabh Bachchan’s company ABCL and directed by Joy Augustine. Prior to his debut in the industry, he was an assistant director and choreographer. 

He spoke about his film and his career and Amitabh’s role in his career life. Tere Mere Sapne was released in 1996 and also starred other debutants Chandrachur Singh, Priya Gill, and Simran. The film was inspired by Mark Twain’s The Prince and the Pauper and was a success at the box office. However, several of Arshad’s subsequent films failed to achieve success. His career gained a lot of popularity in the early 2000s with the success of Munnabhai MBBS, in which he was playing a supportive lead to Sanjay Dutt.

ABCL (Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd) was founded by Amitabh in 1995 but shortly faced financial difficulties. Over the last 20 years, it has only produced a handful of Hindi films, all featuring Amitabh, apart from three regional films.
