Abhishek said, “I hate all my performances and hope I don't start liking them. I believe that the day you start liking your work is the day you become complacent. I review my work, I always find something I can improve on. I think it's the same with all actors. We are always trying to better ourselves from our last outing. So I am not a big fan of my own work.”
