According to Vidya Balan, Mani Rathnam's Guru is Abhishek Bachchan's show all the way. The child-man at the center of unstoppered attention is delighted. "Did Vidya really say that? So sweet of her. Any actor getting to work with Mani is lucky. I've worked with him twice and I feel twice lucky. He's a sheer pleasure to work with . Rest assured when you work with a director of Mani's caliber he's going to challenge you into discovering new areas of your personality. This is what has happened in Guru. Working with Mani is a huge learning experience”.
Abhishek has just shot for Shaad Ali's Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom. "I'm here with Shaad Ali, Preity and Lara Dutta…all friends. It's great fun. I'm absolutely relaxed as long as I get to work with friends. It's very important for me to be working in a comfortable atmosphere. Fortunately I've worked mostly with friends so far. Or directors who've become friends in the course of a film being made. That explains why I'm doing Shaad's next and Goldie Behl's second Drona."
