Amitabh Bachchan shares a close bond with his son, actor Abhishek Bachchan. The megastar often showers his love on Abhishek on social media. The Ghoomer actor also keeps flaunting his admiration for his dad, be it his offscreen bonding with Big B or immense support for the senior actor.

As Abhishek's film, Bol Bachchan, completed 12 years of its release in the Hindi film industry today, the legendary actor acknowledged his performance in the movie.

Amitabh Bachchan calls son Abhishek 'the best'

On July 6 (Saturday), Amitabh Bachchan took to X (formerly Twitter) to share a few words for his son, Abhishek Bachchan. Reacting to a post shared by Abhishek's fan club, Big called him "the best," he added that he isn't saying this as his father but genuinely liked his performance in Bol Bachchan as the audience.

"You are the best Abhishek...and this is not just a father speaking...pyaar aur aashirwaad sadaa (love and blessings, always)," the 81-year-old actor tweeted.

The original post features some rib-tickling scenes of Abhishek from the 2012 film. In a scene, Abhishek's character can be seen trying to cover up the truth, having three fake mothers while talking to Prithviraj Raghuvanshi, played by Ajay Devgn.
