In the video, which was originally uploaded by Brut last year, Abhishek can be heard saying, “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.”
He added, “I don’t think I was qualified to help him in any which way, but I just felt that as a son, I needed to be around my father, and help in whatever way. So I left my college and came back. I started helping him in his company.” Abhishek also revealed that his Bollywood journey began with him starting out as a production boy. He added that one particular night, Amitabh told him that the business wasn’t doing well and that was when he decided to return to start a career in acting.
