The Block buster success of Happy New Year at box office may has given smiles to the producers and the movie actors. At the same time it shared happiness to Abhishek especially as he secured a big hit after long time. But Abhishek lost that happiness due to damning criticism from his mother on this movie.
Senior actress cum Abhisheks Mother Jaya bachchan slammed the movie actors and its stake holders for shooting such idiotic movie.Speaking to media in a literature festival she said the movie as "nonsensical film". She added "I told him (Abhishek Bachchan) he's a great actor if he can act stupid in front of the camera like that. Unfortunately cinema today is about business not art Every one trying to get profits by doing some stupid things. We call good films art house cinema. What does that even mean? All cinema is art. I can't be part of what is being done in films these days and hence I don't do films anymore.". She claimed as she attended that movie preview as she thought the movie will be good, but soon after her realization she just continued her watching just because of Abhishek presence in the movie.
