Childhood and youth
The real name of the star of Indian cinema Abhishek Bachchan is Srivastav. Following the family tradition, following the example of the grandfather and father of Amitabh Bachchan, he took the already famous pseudonym. His father and mother – Jaya Bachchan – are also famous actors in India. Therefore, Abhishek was not tormented with the choice of profession. Although initially the young man intended to become an economist.
The future actor was born on February 5, 1976 in Mumbai. The family has already raised an older sister Shveta. By the sign of the zodiac Abhishek turned out to be Aquarius. Bachchan began to attend school in his hometown. The first years of study were difficult for the boy, as he suffered from dyslexia, but through perseverance and hard work Abhishek managed to overcome the shortcoming.
After moving with his parents to Delhi, the young man continued to receive education, and completed his studies already in Switzerland. At Boston University, the young man began to study economics, but then changed his choice in favor of acting. This decision did not delight his parents too much, but they did not discourage Abhishek.
The debut in the cinema took place only in 2000, when Abhishek was already 24 years old. But the very first role in the drama Les Miserables brought success to the aspiring actor. Brilliant external data (with a height of 188 cm, the weight of the actor does not exceed 78 kg), a sports figure, a charming smile and an expressive voice did their job – the audience became interested in the artist. This inspired Bachchan and he continued his career in cinema. However, subsequent projects were not so successful. For three years, 17 paintings in the filmography of Abhishek turned out to be a failure.
This did not break the actor’s desire to conquer Olympus Bollywood, on the contrary, made him improve his skills, achieve his goal. And the stubbornness of Bachchan Jr. was rewarded. 2003-2004 became a turning point in the creative biography of the actor. Two roles at once in the film “I’m going crazy with love”, and then in the film “At the Crossroads of Fate” were appreciated by viewers and critics. The last picture brought Abhishek Indian Film Institute Award.
In 2004, Abhishek got the title role in the action movie “Dhoom”, which became the leader of the rental. The actor secured his success in a comedy with elements of the adventures of “Banty and the Bulls” (2004). And the next project in 2005 was a joint work of Abhishek and his father. The film “In the footsteps of his father” not only brought a good box office income, but also received the praise of film critics, as well as the award of the Indian Film Institute.
The actor secured the success of the role in the action movie “Hour X”, which also received significant fees. In 2006, the melodrama “Never Say Goodbye” with his participation was able to collect the largest box office in the history of Indian films outside of India at that time. And the 2006 Biker sequel confirmed that a new star was lit in Bollywood.
2007 in the filmography of the actor marked the release of the drama “Guru: the path to success.” But the next work in the melodrama failed in India, but was warmly received in the UK. 2008 again reunited the father and son of the Bachchanov on the set in the crime drama “Sarkar Raj.” In this project, Abhishek worked with his wife Aishwarya Rai.
In the same year, the role in the romantic comedy “Close Friends” became successful. The next film “Delhi-6” again became a failure in Bachchan’s career, but he managed to restore his fame by acting as a producer and performer of one of the roles of the drama “Daddy”, where he again starred with his father. This tape was recognized as the best in 2009, filmed in Hindi.
2010 again brings Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai together in a joint project. Two stars starred in The Villain, where Bachchan got the role of the main negative character. In 2011, the actor’s track record was supplemented by the action movie The Game and the crime drama Vicious Circle, which received good reviews from the audience and box office. The song of Abhishek and Aishwarya jointly performed in the film becomes a popular clip
At the beginning of 2012, the action movie Players was released. A remake of the famous Hollywood painting “Italian Robbery” was shot in India, Russia, New Zealand and even at the North Pole. For the first time in Bollywood history, Indian filmmakers worked in such harsh conditions.
The 2012 comedy “Reluctant Deceiver” secured the glory of a charismatic actor for Bachchan Jr., who is equally able to embody any role on the screen. The action “Bikers-3” (2013) with the participation of the actor has become one of the most expensive Bollywood projects. At the same time, the tape managed to get on the list of the highest grossing Indian films.
In 2014, Abhishek’s filmography was replenished with the action movie “Happy New Year”, and in 2015 – with the comedy melodrama “Everything is Good”, in which he appeared in an acting duet with Rishi Kapoor. Remaining true to this genre in 2016, the actor played a role in the film “Full House 3”, where he played with Akshay Kumar.
Although back in 2006 the English magazine Eastern Eye called Abhishek Bachchan the sexiest Asian man, and the Times of India newspaper even titled him as the most enviable Indian groom, the actor at one time did not manage to establish his personal life and have a family and children.
Abhishek was in love with actress Karishma Kapoor, and there was even an engagement between the young people. However, the wedding did not work out. After 4 months, the engagement was broken. One of the versions of their separation is the intervention of Amar Singh, a close friend of the Bachchan family. They also talked about the condition that Karishma, as a future wife, should have finished her film career after the wedding.
In 1997, Abhishek Bachchan met Aishwarya Rai. But they began to communicate closely only on the set of the action movie “Bikers 2: Real Feelings.” However, at that time, the romance between him and Miss World 1994 did not work, because they were already not free, but the spark ran through. Further collaboration brought the young people together, and their relationship ended in a magnificent wedding on Valentine’s Day in 2007. The cost of the celebration was $ 900 thousand, turning the marriage ceremony of the actors into the most expensive Bollywood wedding.
After more than four years, in November 2011, the star couple had the long-awaited daughter Aaradhia. The baby is loved by all the numerous relatives from the side of the father and mother. Although the media constantly flashes reports that the star couple is on the verge of a divorce or has already divorced, Aishwarya and Abhishek still love each other. Photos of a happy family constantly flash in the tabloids of India.
Now the couple is engaged in charity work for the children of India. Aishwarya, along with other members of the Bachchan family, built a school for the poorest girls in the village of Daulat Pur in Uttar Pradesh. The educational institution was named after the Indian beauty – the wife of Abhishek.
Abhishek Bachchan is a dedicated football fan. The artist tracks the matches of the national team of India and the football club Chennai. Videos from the winning matches of the teams and photos of the winners appear on the actor’s Instagram. The interest in the Bollywood star is also caused by the game of cricket. On Twitter, the actor does not forget to congratulate his idol, Sachin Tendulkar, who is also called the “God of Cricket” in his homeland, despite the fact that the athlete has already completed his brilliant career.
