Amitabh Bachchan has been experimenting in films since a while and almost a decade ago, the actor decided to take on the challenge of playing a character with a genetic condition of progeria. It was this film that real-life father-son duo, had a role reversal as Amitabh Bachchan played Abhishek Bachchan's son in the film. As Paa completes ten years, Abhishek wrote a special post about the film. It is also special to the actor mainly because it was his first production and also the one starring his father. Abhishek Bachchan as Bob Biswas: Twitterati Upset for Not Casting Saswata Chatterjee in Kahaani Spin-Off.

In an amazing post about Paa, Abhishek even let out an unknown fact about the film. The actor revealed that he was never inclined to take on the film and wasn't entirely convinced with his role until director R Balki coerced him to consider it. Talking about the film, he wrote,"PAA!! 10 years already. This 1st film I produced.It would not have been possible without the conviction of this mad visionary called R. Balki! Not many know, I didn't want to act in the film ( wasn't convinced about my role) Balki and I were shooting an ad together and he spent the day convincing me. After hours of badgering, in an attempt to just get him to stop - I said yes! It turned out to be such a fun and memorable experience. I'm so glad he had the tenacity and belief in my capabilities to relentlessly pursue me. His conviction in me and his ability to steer me through this journey is something I will never be able to repay him for or thank him enough for. I'm so proud of this film!"

PAA!! 10 years already. This 1st film I produced. It would not have been possible without the conviction of this mad visionary called R. Balki! Not many know, I didn't want to act in the film ( wasn't convinced about my role) Balki and I were shooting an ad together and he spent the day convincing me. After hours of badgering, in an attempt to just get him to stop - I said yes! It turned out to be such a fun and memorable experience. I'm so glad he had the tenacity and belief in my capabilities to relentlessly pursue me. His conviction in me and his ability to steer me through this journey is something I will never be able to repay him for or thank him enough for. I'm so proud of this film! It would not have been possible to produce this one without the immense help, guidance, support and belief of Wing Commander Ramesh Pulapaka ( our CEO) Sunil Manchanda ( my producing partner and the main man) and Reliance Entertainment. They were all the back bone of this film. The amazing crew. Starting with the great PC sir and Raja sir. Anil Naidu, Sunil Babu, our amazing make-up team, the amazing AD's, Hitendra Ghosh, the costume team and the rest of the unit. To my Auro. My PAA. For having faith in his son to firstly play his father and then allow him to produce an Amitabh Bachchan film!!! To Vidya, Arundhathi ji, Paresh ji and the rest of the cast for being flawless and so supportive. I owe you all so much gratitude ( coz I'm sure I signed all your checks 😉😂). And lastly to the audience for seeing the film and making it such a success. Forever indebted. #10yearsofPaa

We are sure it was indeed a special experience for Abhishek to work on this film. The father-son duo have worked together in other films such as Bunty Aur Babli, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna among others. Although given that Paa has now completed a decade, we would love for them to coordinate for a film once more.
