Interestingly, Abhishek Banerjee revealed that Amitabh Bachchan was one of his biggest inspirations for him during a conversation with Bollywood Hungama. When asked who is his role model, Banerjee said, “Amitabh Bachchan,” loud and clear in his quick response.

The Stree actor further added, “Whenever I’m in doubt, I watch a Bachchan movie and I get motivated and I go on sets and I try to do my best. He has been one of my biggest inspirations throughout my childhood, adulthood and acting career.”
When asked to tell us how his dream role looks like, the 37-year-old actor asserted, “I want to do something that he did in Deewar. The angst in Vijay in Deewar is what I want to play. I hope I get the opportunity to play that kind of role in my lifetime. That’s the kind of role I wanted to like in a character, his angst is something which is really attractive and I really want to play. My characters Hathoda/Vishal Tyagi are almost a tribute to him. The silence, the aggression, that was my way of doing it. But it comes from a lot of angst, Vishal Tyagi Ke Andar bhot angst hai.”
