Abhishek Bachchan Profile Acting Career

Abhishek made a good start with 'Refugee' along side Kareena Kapoor in 2000. Although the film didn't do well, his work was praised. The movie earned him nominations for several awards like 2000's most promising debut performer. The same year, he did couple of movies 'Dhai Akshar Prem Ke' and 'Tera Jadoo Chal Gaya'. But the films failed to make a commercial success.

In his early career, media raised a question that 'whether Abhishek copying his father?' Well on this note, actor Sunil Shetty said, "He is very much his own actor."

"Of course, there are moments when he is his father's son, but that's not because he's been influenced, it's more due to the fact that it's in his genes, both from his father as well as his mother."

In the starting days, Abhishek struggled lot to make a hit. In 2001, Abhishek appeared in 'Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai'. Followed by it, he did 'Om Jai Jagadish', 'Desh' and 'Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya' in 2002. None of these films made big at box-office. His character as Prem Kumar in 'Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon (2003)' along with Kareena Kapoor earned him a Filmfare Best Supporting Actor nomination. In 2003, he also did three other movies: 'Zameen', 'Kuch Naa Kaho', and LOC- Kargil. Again these movies made disappointments for Abhishek. Although the movies are not working well, Abhishek's work was being appreciated.

Year 2004 was turned out as good year for Abhishek. His role as a bad guy Lallan in Mani Ratnam's 'Yuva' was received well by the critics as well as the audience. 'Yuva' earned him several awards as supporting actor at many award functions like Filmfare, Star Screen and IIFA. The same year had given a major hit 'Dhoom'. 'Dhoom' was one of the commercial successes of that year. Abhishek also won the Zee Cine Award as Best Supporting Actor for 'Phir Milenge (2004)'. Abhishek made a guest appearance in 'Hum Tum (2004)', which was again hit of that year.

After the success of Yuva and Dhoom, Abhishek lent consecutive hits in 2005, including Bunty Aur Babli, Dus, Sarkar, and Bluff Master. Sarkar in which he worked with his father, earned him his second Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. In 2005, he also made special appearances in Salaam Namaste, Ek Ajnabee, Home Delivery, and Neal n' Nikki.

In 2006, Abhishek did a stage show called 'Netru, Indru, Naalai' along with other Bollywood screen stars. The same year he did three other movies: Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Umrao Jaan and Dhoom 2. Umrao Jaan along with Aishwarya Rai was proved to be a disappointment, but the other two were declared as the year's biggest hits. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna received well in India but made good business overseas. His role inthe film earned him his third Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. 'Dhoom 2' was the biggest hit of 2006.

Abhishek, Abhi or Junior B gave his first solo hit with 'Guru' in 2007. In 'Guru' he was accompanied by Aishwarya Rai. Soon after the completion of film, they both get married on April 20, 2007. There after, he appeared in a cameo role in 'Shootout at Lokhandwala'. He also made a special appearance in 'Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag'. His latest releases includes 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007) (JBJ)' and 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag (2007)'. JBJ received mixed reviews. It did ok in India but received well in overseas especially in the U.K. 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' is also getting mixed reviews for it.

Abhishek Bachchan's upcoming films include Sarkar Raj, Drona, Pa and Time Machine. Sarkar Raj is a sequel to 2005's Sarkar, while in Drona, Abhishek is playing a kind of superhero.

Meanwhile, Abhishek Bachchan will join his father Amitabh Bachchan, wife Aishwarya Bachchan and many other Indian film actors for the world-wide Unforgettable Tour in 2008. Reports have that the tour will cover around 18 countries and 6 continents.

Abhishek married to former Miss World and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai on April 20, 2007. His wedding is done with traditional Hindu rites of the South Indian Bunt community, to which Aishwarya belongs. It is also followed by the North Indian and Bengali ceremonies.

His wedding took place at the Bachchan's residence Prateeksha in Juhu, Mumbai. The ceremony was a private affair attended by Bachchan and Rai family and close friends. Bachchan's made it a low profile because Abhishek's grandmother Teji Bachchan had ill health.
