Abhishek Bachchan made an impactful debut in 2000 with the film, Refugee. He went on to entertain cinema-goers with superhit movies like Dhoom, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Dostana, among others. However, Abhishek was always pitted against his father and legendary actor, Amitabh Bachchan, during his acting career. But Abhishek never let the constant comparison take a toll on his self-confidence. Since 2020, he has worked in back-to-back outstanding OTT movies and called himself ‘The Bachchan Of OTT’.

Over the years, Abhishek Bachchan has been facing criticism from the audience with his open arms. From being called a talentless actor to being targeted for nepotism, Abhishek had faced it all. In an old interview, he was asked if he would like to travel in the past and cut all the ties with his superstar parents, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. Answering this, Junior Bachchan had said that he would never do that as he finds enormous pride in being Amitabh and Jaya’s son. Moreover, he had also called it a privilege that he was born with a silver spoon.
In an interview with India Today, Abhishek had revealed that his mom, Jaya Bachchan refused to watch his web series, Breathe: Into The Shadows 2. He mentioned how his family members were all set to experience the action-packed series, except his mom. Stating a hilarious reason behind it, Abhishek stated that Jaya gets scared of violent and aggressive content, so she avoids watching action movies.
We love how Amitabh Bachchan became a cheerleader for his son, Abhishek Bachchan.
