Kapoor, who has been in the industry for almost 38 years now, said there was a time when he was pondering to take sabbatical but spoke to Bachchan who advised him not to go for it. “I can’t remember any best or worst phase of my career. For <g data-gr-id="21">me</g> it is always about reinvention and experimenting. I am consistent, steady and feel fortunate to be a part of good films. I remember we were shooting for Armaan... There was a time when I wanted to take sabbatical and I did speak to Amitabh ji about it,” Kapoor told media persons.
“He said he made the mistake of not working for some years and told me not to take a break. I have not taken ever. I respect him, I look up to him,” he said.
In 1984, Bachchan took a break from acting and briefly entered politics and resigned after three years. In 1988, he returned to films, achieved success for a while but later saw a dull phase till Kaun Banega Crorepati happened in 2000.
