I really owe this TOIFA award to Aishwarya, Abhishek


Abhishek Bachchan won an award for 'Bol Bachchan' for his comic role in the movie at the inaugural edition of the Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA) 2013 in Canada and he thanked his family, Aishwarya for the support and the award.

In his thanking speech, Abhishek Bachchan said, "I would like to thank my family for firstly having me because things wouldn't have worked without that. I really owe this to Aishwarya and the love and support she has given me. She makes me the person that I am".

He also thanked his co-star, Ajay Devgn and the film's director Rohit Shetty for 'having faith' in him.

He also promised the crowd of Vancouver to bring Aishwarya perform on stage next time and but also bring dad Amitabh Bachchan to shake a leg.

"I would like to thank my family for firstly having me because things wouldn't have worked without that. I really owe this to Aishwarya and the love and support she has given me. She makes me the person that I am," said the actor after winning the trophy at the first edition of (TOIFA) Times of India Film awards 2013.

Abhishek and his family were to perform at Vancouver five years back but unfortunately the show cancelled.

He said: "Almost five years ago me and my family were scheduled to perform in Vancouver for the Unforgettable tour (in 2008). Unfortunately, the show in Vancouver got cancelled and I promised I will make it up to you and I hope that was a bit of a payback. And I promise you next time I won't only bring Aishwarya, I will bring dad (Amitabh Bachchan) as well," he said.

"But Shiamak, you will have to choreograph it," said the 37-year-old, whose act was choreographed by Indian Contemporary Dance choreographer Shiamak Davar.

He later called up his 'Bol Bachchan' co-star Krushna, and handed over the award to him saying, "you deserve this".
