Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan says he would be happy with whatever career option his daughter Aaradhya will choose in the future.

Bachchan on Thursday interacted with fans and followers on Twitter, where a user asked him if his daughter would contribute in Bollywood to continue the “Bachchan trend”.

He replied via a video message: “I would like my daughter to do whatever she chooses to do and whatever she loves to do. As a kid I was told to do what made me happy and I want her to do what makes her happy. Whatever it is I will be happy.”

The actor also told a user that he loves his daughter and his wife, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, equally.

“You can’t choose between your wife and your daughter. So I love both equally,” said the Guru actor.

Another user asked the Housefull 3 star about how difficult it is to perform when the world’s benchmark for comparison is his father and megastar Amitabh Bachchan?

“I think it is very important to have high standards... So I think it’s not difficult, but a matter of great pride and huge inspiration for me,” replied the 40-year-old.

“I have been ready for 16 years...I am just waiting for the opportunity,” he said to query on whether he would work in a Tamil film.

Another tweep asked if there are plans for a sequel of the 2007 film Guru.

“A sequel to Guru...Although I’d love to work on the character again. I’d love to work with Mani Ratnam and Aishwarya, R. Madhavan, Mithun Chakraborty, Vidya Balan and entire team. But I dont think there would be a sequel,” he said.

“I think Saif [Ali Khan] and I would make a very cool buddy kind of a film,” he added before ending the question and answer session.
