Abhishek Bachchan Fan Club
Abhishek Bachchan did not get fame on a platter. He had to struggle tooth and nail to become one of the most promising actors in Bollywood,
Abhishek knew it from the very beginning that he has to make it big in cinema just like his father-Amitabh Bachchan and mother-Jaya Bachchan . That’s why before completing his business degree in Boston University, he chose to come back to India and start his career in movies.
He made his acting debut in the year 2000 with J.P Dutta’s
Refugee which was a great launch pad for him. But the film didn’t turn out to be a box-office success. Abhishek kept on signing new projects, but none of them proved to be a big hit.
After a string of no shows, Abhi was dubbed a “dark horse” by his detractors.
Even on the personal front, Abhishek’s luck didn’t favour him. His engagement with well-known Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor broke in 2002.
Success knocked on Abhi’s door with Mani Ratnam’s
Yuva in 2004, for which he got best supporting actor award. Since then, there has been no looking back for him. He has proved himself as a bankable actor.
Not only is he one of the sought-after stars in Bollywood, Abhishek has also been named as Asia’s Sexiest Male of year 2006 by a British tabloid.
He met Aishwarya Rai, who was his co-star in several movies, they got engaged, and were married on April 20, 2007 in Juhu, Bombay.
