Abhishek Bachchan announced his entry into Bollywood with JP Dutta’s 2000 film Refugee that also marked Kareena Kapoor’s debut in the industry. Abhishek followed it up with the film Om Jai Jagadish (2002), LOC Kargil (2003), Yuva and Dhoom (2004), Bunty Aur Babli, Sarkar and Antarmahal (2005), Guru (2006), Delhi-6 (2009), Happy New Year (2014) among several others. He also starred in R Balki’s National award winning film Paa where his father, Amitabh Bachchan played the role of his son, a victim of the rare genetic disorder progeria.
Born to actors Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya [Bhaduri] Bachchan in the year 1976, Abhishek always wanted to become an actor. He was studying business in United States, but then did not complete it as he wanted to pursue his dream in front of the camera. And Abhishek received support from his father.
Along with moving ahead in his professional career, Abhishek also decided to settle down with his girlfriend, model-turned-actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. He proposed her after the premiere Guru in Toronto, and in 2007 they tied the knot. Both the actors have collaborated in a number of films such as Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke (2000), Kuch Naa Kaho (2003), Bunty Aur Babli, Guru, Umrao Jaan (2006) and Dhoom 2 (2006). Their first child, daughter Aaradhya, was born in 2011.
Today, Abhishek celebrates his 42nd birthday. On the occasion, we take a look at some throwback photos of the actor to relive few important moments of his life. Check it out:
It is my late grandfather's Birthday today. Miss him dearly. Whilst growing up, on our birthdays he would write a poem for each of his grandchildren. We didn't understand that when everybody else was giving us presents why Dadaji would just write us a poem. Today I realise that those pieces of paper are greater than any present we could have ever received. The love and wisdom in those hand written letters are priceless. Love you Dadaji and I proudly carry the name that you gave me.
I'm pretty sure she still thinks I'm that same size and age.... But am also sure that she will always be there for me, as I will for her. #happyrakhi Shwetdi. Love you. P.S. I have 3 other sisters who do the same, but they will kill me if I post childhood photos of them. Actually, now that I think of it my sister is going to have the same reaction!! Remember girls it's RAKSHAbandhan.
#flashbackfriday this photo was taken right after I gave my first ever shot for my 1st film, Refugee. Cant believe its already been 17 years. Thank you JP saab for having faith and belief in me ( and continuing to) dont know if I'll ever be able to thank you enough for introducing and guiding me through the world of cinema. To Bebo, Jaggu dada, @suniel.shetty, @anupampkher and the rest of the coolest and most loving cast and crew... Thank you for being the best co-stars a newcomer could ever ask for. For your patience, love, support and compassion. #17yearsofRefugee
