Abhishek Bachchan, son of the biggest star of Indian cinema Amitabh Bachchan made his debut with Refugee opposite Kareena Kapoor in 2000. The career graph of the actor has seen many highs and lows. Though his performances in films like Guru, Yuva, Dhoom, Bunty Aur Babli, Dostana have been widely applauded, yet his acting potential has often been questioned and compared to that of his iconic father.
Being married to one of the most successful heroines of the time, Aishwarya Rai, perhaps made his journey more prone to comparisons of that sort. Speaking about a time, when he got criticised for his career choices in a row, Abhishek reveals a shocking truth in an interaction with NDTV, “If we give a flop film, people stop taking our calls; then it does not matter whose kid you are. It’s true that a flop is the worst feeling in the world and destroys you as a human being.”
However, Abhishek knows how to take criticism on his stride. Toeing on a positive note, he said, “The low phase that I went through, I think, was necessary. It teaches you a lot. I believe there is no success without failure. It keeps you grounded and makes you appreciate things.”
This is a clear proof that the actor who is more famous for bringing alive comparatively lighter roles on screen, is deep down a very wise soul.
