Abhishek Bachchan was in Delhi recently to be the part of designer Ritu Beri’s annual kids’ fashion show which was organised to raise awareness for autism and to raise funds for children who are underprivileged.
When asked about why Aaradhya was missing from the action on the ramp, Abhishek said: “I had lot of fun coming here. I am a film actor and these children (who walked the ramp) are much better than me. Talking about my daughter, I think it is completely her (Aaradhya) choice, let her decide her career as and when she wants too.”
“Currently she is in Dubai and very small, but I am sure she will be happy to lend her support to such causes when she grows up,” he added.
He further said, “As a parent it is not about material goods. The gifts a parent can give the children are love, care, education and understanding. These are the most important gifts any parent can give. As far as I am concerned, taking care of the child is never just a mother’s role. It’s all about sharing responsibilities.”
Bachchan, 37 said that a parent’s his duty was to give a healthy upbringing to the child, without forcing any ideas on him or her.
Abhishek had a fun time at the event as he danced with kids and performed to a few of his hit songs like Bunty aur Babli, Kajra Re, Bol Bachchan and Desi Girl.
Jr. Bachchan signed a T-shirt that was sold in an auction. Starting from Rs.50,000 the shirt finally went to Member of Parliament Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda.
