Abhishek Bachchan: I'm sorry for Karisma

Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma KapoorKarisma Kapoor's marriage blues are affecting Abhishek Bachchan too. While the two may have parted ways long ago, that doesn't stop Small B from feeling sorry for his former ladylove.

"I am extremely hurt because of the recent developments in Karisma's life. Although I am in no position to point fingers or say who's responsible for the whole mess, I do feel sorry for the fact that Karisma is going through such an upheaval and having a tough time.
"I know she's going through a lot of mental stress because of her marital discord. I can only pray to God that she gets some peace of mind soon. I also wish that her daughter Samaira is able to lead a very comfortable life," he says.

Abhishek, who is riding high after the box office success of films like Bunty aur Babli, Sarkar and Dus, admits that his own marriage plans are on hold for the moment.

"I am not very keen to get tie the knot in near future. My mom and relatives keep asking me the same question. But I have been telling everyone that marriage is not on my list of priorities for another 3-4 years," he says.

With matrimony still some distance away, Abhishek wants people to stop speculating about his relationship with sundry women in the industry.

According to him: "My name keeps getting linked with some actress or the other. But I want to make it clear that I am not having an affair with anyone in the film industry. People even say I am seeing Esha (Deol). The truth is that she's a family friend and started her career with my mom. She's not my girlfriend; she's more like my sister. Believe me, I will let everyone know when I do have an affair with someone."
