Abhishek Bachchan made his acting debut in 2000 with J. P. Dutta’s war film Refugee, and followed it by starring in over a dozen films which were all critical and commercial failures.
His first commercial successes came with the 2004 action films Dhoom and Run, which changed his career prospects. Bachchan went on to earn critical appreciation for his performances in the dramas Yuva (2004), Sarkar (2005), and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), which won him three consecutive Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.
In 2007, he portrayed a character loosely based on Dhirubhai Ambani in Mani Ratnam’s drama film Guru, which earned him a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor.
Bachchan has also played leading and supporting roles in commercially successful comedies and dramas, including Bunty Aur Babli (2005), Sarkar (2005), Bluffmaster! (2005), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), Guru (2007), Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007), Dostana (2008), Bol Bachchan (2012), Happy New Year (2014), and Housefull 3 (2016). His highest-grossing releases include the action sequels Dhoom (2004), Dhoom 2 (2006), and Dhoom 3 (2013).
After over a 2-year absence from the silver screen, Abhishek starred in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan alongside Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal which released in September 2018 and was successful at the box office.
After Manmarziyaan, Abhishek is slated to play the male lead in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali production which is a biographical film about love story of poet Sahir Ludhianvi and author Amrita Pritam.
In September 2019, Bachchan started shooting for The Big Bull directed by Kookie Gulati, which will be releasing on OTT platform Disney Hotstar Plus. He will also be seen in Red Chillies Entertainment production Bob Biswas.
He will also feature in a T-Series and Anurag Basu Productions film titled Ludo.

Time flies when you’re having fun! #RoadTo20 Today, 20 years ago JP Dutta’s Refugee released. Marking the introduction of yours truly and @kareenakapoorkhan into the world of films. Your first film is always most dear and special; Refugee was no different. An amazing experience! A newcomer could not have asked for anything else. JP sahab was the best teacher. Caring, nurturing and has since been an amazing guiding force for me. The entire cast and crew were so patient,supportive and encouraging. My love and respect for all of them is boundless. Thank you! It is a blessing and a privilege to be able to look back and recount the last 20 years. Any actor will tell you, getting to make a film is a huge honour. Surviving 20 yrs seems unimaginable. The best part is, I feel like I’m just getting started. I have so much more to prove. So much more to do and I can’t wait…. However, none of this would have been possible without my family! They have been my inspiration, my strength, my silent support and my “raison d”être”. They allowed me the freedom to figure out whatever I needed to without ever pressurising me, burdening me with expectation. They let me know when they didn’t like a performance and showered me with love when they did. I am because of them and I hope, some day whey they look back and reminisce they feel proud of me. But, now this is sounding like the end…. nowhere near it. Like I said, I’m just getting started. And “miles to go before I sleep”. Like the great Sinatra said- “ The record shows, I took the blows And did it my way!” #TakeTwo . . . Pic courtesy: @fifipewz
