Abhishek Bachchan took us back in time on Friday as he reflected on his films from 2007-- a 'landmark' year for him. The actor opened up how his film 'Guru' opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was one of the most creatively satisfying films of his career. Not just that, Abhishek also reminded us of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and Shootout At Lokhandwala and shared anecdotes. As part of his #RoadTo20 posts, Abhishek revealed that AR Rahman's song Tere Bina from Guru remains his favourite to his day. 

Abhishek wrote, "Year-2007 #Guru #JhoomBarabarJhoom A landmark year for me both personally and professionally! Guru brought me back together with Mani for the 2nd time, @aishwaryaraibachchan_arb for the 4th and #Mithunda, @balanvidya and @actormaddy for the first time. Guru, was one of the most creatively satisfying films in my career. A film we all worked so hard on and enjoyed making immensely. Great music by @arrahman ( Tere Bina remains my favourite ). The huge talent and dedication of the entire cast made my job so easy. And my “phiphty percent partner” was truly the wind beneath Gurukant Desai’s wings!" 

He further added, "@lakhiaapoorva after Mumbai se Aaya Mera Dost, told me that in no matter what capacity, he would have me in every film he made. Staying true to that promise was #ShootOutAtLokhandwala yes career decisions are important and you need to think and decide very carefully. But I’ve always believed that we must also do films for fun and for friends! And Apu is one of my closest. The year was capped off with #JBJ from the brilliant, mad and creative mind of another dear friend. @shaadalisahgal (our next after B&B)."

My second film with both @realpz and @larabhupathi and my first with my friend @iambobbydeol Still one of the coolest soundtracks out there by the legendary @shankar.mahadevan @ehsaan @loymendonsaofficial @shankarehsaanloy Bob and I even got the opportunity to pay homage to our fathers and their legendary song “yeh dosti”. Great memories... that’s also what it’s about- making memories. And in 2007 I made some of the best ones.

Don’t say anything? Nepotism!!

Anonymous 2 months ago

You don't even need to put any pressure on your brain to see that Abhishek is a product of nepotism who had it easy and got big movies through his father. Look at his filmography, all his movies are from Yash Chopra, Karan Johar, Mani Ratnam, Shaad Ali, Ramesh Sippy, JP Dutta and other big names.

Abhishek never had to struggle and had it easy from the beginning. He has had 6 movies from Yash Raj camp, 3 movies from Karan Johar camp, 2-3 movies from Mani Ratnam, and many movies from Sippy camp, JP Dutta, Anurag Kashyap, Shaad Ali.

No not in his case...do not stereotype...may b refuge he got like that...but from there it wasn’t a cakewalk for him too bcoz he is neither kjos camp where Kareena is the star...after a break up with her sister will they take him...every one knows wat b****es the Kapoor sisters r...and so no yashraj movies also...so wat is he left with??salmans camp?really?plz try to put sum pressure on ur brain...that guy was as much a victim...the only difference is that he is an insider...and oh by the way...have u watched lagha chunari Mein daag...that role and that movie is the joke of the decade...they made sure that his career is dead just like they did with sushanths Netflix series...

Flop actor.... how come he still get movie offers?

Anonymous 2 months ago

They? Who is they? He is Amitabh Bachchan's son. The entire industry can't do anything to ruin his career. His movies flopped because public didn't like his acting.

No one highjacked his career after breakup with Karishma. He started his career in 2000 and his engagement with Karishma broke in 2002. He got all his big budget big director movies after 2002.

Karan Johar gave Abhishek many movies, Dostana and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.

Abhishek got 6 movies from Yash Raj camp (Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Dhoom, Dhoom 2, Dhoom 3, Bunty Aur Babli). Those were all big budget movies but Abhishek didn't prove himself because he is a terrible actor. Ranveer got only 3 Yash Raj movies and emerged as a good actor.

Why are you bringing Salman in this post. Why would Salman give Abhishek any projects. Did Amitabh Bachchan ever help anyone else? Did Amitabh help Salman when Salman was going through a difficult phase? Did Amitabh give any films to kids of his costars (Dharmendra's sons, Vinod Khanna's son, Jeetandra's son)?

He is Amitabh Bachchan's son. He doesn't need Salman or Karan Johar for movies. He is a failed actor who got many opportunities but he wasted them.

Wat offers did he get?they made sure kjo and Salman That he did not get any

Anonymous 2 months ago

Plz use ur brains!his career was as much hijacked by kjo after his breakup with Karishma....they made sure that he is no where seen...just luk at the roles he was offered...kabhie Alvida na kehna tho was a death blow....and to add to that there is Salman who has it against Ash...the day Salman is in Abhi will b out of Dhoom series also...now he is acting in b grade movies like manmarziya...he is big B’s son...there it ends...he has given his finest performances in mani Ratnams fins...all the other Bollywood films offered to him were a joke and utter c**p....that’s how kjo and party play their games....

He was really good in that movie

Yes I can count on fingers your hit , creative movies. But I don’t hv anything against this actor. I never saw him bullying. Infact he is victim of nepotism other way around. Must hv been more successful if not AB’s son and AR’s husband. Comparison ruined his movies.
