Abhishek Bachchan cancels ‘paternity leave’ for Aamir


Yash Raj Films’ ‘Dhoom 3’, which was to go on floors in November, was postponed in light of soon-to-be-daddy Abhishek Bachchan’s request to spend time with his wife Aishwarya Rai, who is expected to deliver around November. However, hat Abhishek will still have to sacrifice his sanctioned paternity leave for his professional commitments. ‘Dhoom 3’ will go on floors in November as previously planned because Aamir Khan’s dates are not flexible at all. “It is not advisable for the producers to try negotiating with Aamir as his dates clash with the time Abhishek wished to take off from the shoots. Hence Aditya Chopra asked him to reconsider taking leave,” said a source. Subsequently, Abhishek has agreed to cancel his leave and report to work. “It was a professional decision on his part. He readily agreed when he understood the problem that the producers were in. Aamir does only one film at a time and he allots his dates well in advance. Abhishek will get a customary two days off on the day of delivery. And he is content with it,” added the source. The film, which also stars Uday Chopra, will hit theatres on December 25, 2012.
