AB baby aka Abhishek Bachchan turns 37 today, and he plans it to be a very quiet birthday. It is not easy to live under the shadow of the superstar of the millennium who is possibly the most well-known personality in India but to his credit, in spite of a tough struggle, Abhishek Bachchan has successfully carved out his own place in the sun as a bankable actor in the world of Hindi cinema. Nagpur today will tell you someone unknown and very interesting facts about this “Guru Bhai”.
- He attended Jamnabai Narsee School and Bombay Scottish School in Mumbai, Modern School, Vasant Vihar, New Delhi, and Aiglon College in Switzerland. He then attended Boston University.
- Didn’t finish studying business in the United States since he wanted to become an actor. His father, Amitabh Bachchan, supported Abhishek’s decision.
- Abhishek has won the Best Supporting Actor at the Filmfare Awards for three consecutive years. Yuva (2004), Sarkar (2005) and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna (2006).
- In 2006, Abhishek was named the sexiest man in Asia by the UK magazine ‘Eastern Eye
- In 2010, he won his first National Film Award (as a producer) for ‘Paa’ which also won the Best Feature Film in Hindi Award.
- Abhishek Bachchan shot for an item number for Apoorva Lakhia’s ‘Mission Istanbul’ and did not take any compensation for the same. Abhishek danced with VJ Pia Trivedi for a pre-climax number in which Zayed and Vivek are shown to be on a mission in a hotel to get some vital information.
- Abhishek Bachchan is also involved in the functional and administrative operations of his father’s company, originally known as ABCL, and rechristened as AB Corp. Ltd. The company, along with Wizcraft International Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., developed the ‘Unforgettable’ production
- Abhishek Bachchan got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play the role of a young Amitabh Bachchan in Shoebite but he turned it down. He was obviously approached because his frame and features are very similar to that of the senior Bachchan. But AB’s baby had a few reservations.
So he may plan this birthday to be quiet but Nagpur today wishes Abhishek Bachchan Big Bang’s for his films and coming birthdays.
