Abhishek Bachchan biography

Its easy to follow your father’s footsteps when he is the superstar of the millennium but very difficult to live upto that image if your work is compared to or expected to be as good as your father’s. That is how the filmography of Abhishek Bachchan began in 1999.
The only son of the veteran actor and the Big ‘B’ of bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan and actress,� Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek, was born on 5th Febuary 1976. He has one elder sister, Shweta Nanda. His high schooling was done in Switzerland and since then, Abhishek had a dream of becoming an actor.
Refugee, directed by J.P. Dutta, was Abhishek’s first film. He starred opposite new comer Kareena Kapoor. But this film was soon forgotten. Then came LOC, Tera Jadoo Chal Gaya, Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, Shararat and Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost (opposite Lara Dutta). But all of them failed to give Abhishek the kind of recognition his father had. Then came a set of films that soon put Abhishek in the list of top ten actors. These were Dhoom, Bunty Aur Babli, Sarkar, Bluffmaster and Dus. His roles in each of the film were different yet interesting. From the conman in Dhoom and Dus to the funny bluffer in Bunty aur Babli and Bluffmaster, Abhishek was accepted by both critics and audiences. He soon gained popularity and from now on people found lots of similarities between him and his superstar dad Amitabh.
On the personal front also, Abhishek was been in the news. He was engaged to Karisma Kapoor in 2002 but after few months they had broke up. Finally this year, he tied the knot to former Miss World and a super star, Aishwarya Rai, with whom he has done films like Dhoom 2 and Umrao Jaan.
Abhishek has quite a few films lined up as of now. His forthcoming film is a Yashraj film venture directed by Sanjay Gandhavi. Sarkar 2 and Krishh 2 are also in the following. He has a home production film with Apoorva Lakhia as well.
People who know him say that Abhishek is a prankster, humerous yet affectionate. He is a perfect blend of his parents whether it’s acting or real life.
