Abhishek Bachchan has starred in over 50 films in both lead and supporting roles, and most of his films have been able to earn him commendable reviews for his outstandingly breathtaking performances.
Abhishek Bachchan isn’t an actor of potent calibre, would be one of the most misjudged claims one could make. One that is expected to come from someone who isn’t aware of the art and its nuances, or whose idea of â€œsuccessâ€ correlates to the amount of success AB Jr. has achieved, as compared to his father and Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
The scion of Bollywood’s most famous and most talented family, Abhishek Bachchan, is fast acquiring a new power-packed status. Initially referred to as nothing more than a shadow of his legendary father, the suave actor is now ready to write his own story and become a legend himself.
Abhishek Bachchan happens to be a victim of this stunted worldview most Indians suffer from. Because if you ask me, Abhishek brings more to his characters than the sketches put down on paper.
Many of Abhishek’s performances are prime examples of how one can bring their personal experiences to add depth and flavour to a character. There is a hint of gravitas in the characters that Abhishek brings to life.
He is one of the few actors in the industry who you can trust to bring their personality into a character, and still make it work.
Abhishek Bachchan’s role in Happy New Year earned him what most things might not have: it got the actor trending on Twitter. Bachchan plays the role of Nandu Bhinde, a tapori who is involved in the heist that forms the crux of the film. Right after the film hit the theatres today, Twitterverse began teeming with posts about Abhishek’s brilliance in the film
Which brings us to 5 of Abhishek’s most standout performances of all time that makes us wish we could have more directors bring out the best of AB Jr. once more in front of the camera:
This film earned Abhishek his first Filmfare Award and was undoubtedly Abhishek’s most memorable performance. The angst and fierce drive inherent in the character of Lallan Singh made for a treat to behold and kept us glued to our screens.
- Bunty Aur Babli
Abhishek made his mark in the industry with his performance in this film, and even caught people’s attention for his striking comic timing in the film. The crime-comedy brought out a different side to the actor that no one could disregard.
Who can forget Abhishek as Shankar Nagre, a role that earned Abhishek another Filmfare Award for the best supporting role? His manipulative moves and honest rendition of the character put him in the limelight once more.
This film and Abhishek’s performance in the film needs no introduction. Inspired by Dhirubhai Ambani’s life, the film earned him a lot of well-deserved critical acclaim.
- Dhoom Trilogy
Abhishek as ACP Jai Dixit has added a lot to the series, no matter how quick people are to set aside his role in the films. No Dhoom film would be as good without ACP Dixit in it.
