The actor of flop films who gives two ‘exams’ every day, passes every day, still is not able to become a superstar.

If we keep aside the debate of star kids and nepotism, then it becomes most important to talk about this Bollywood personality. Talking also because he did not get the same stardom as his contemporaries and the actors who came after him. Whereas he is the son of one of the biggest actors of Bollywood.

The audience never saw him on the superstar race line. He has not just one but many flops. The number of hit films can be counted only on fingers. Even after spending 24 years in Bollywood, this actor neither got the fame nor the name he deserves. His luck was bad or in other words, his first film was a flop despite being very big.

After reading the intro of the story, if you feel that a Bollywood actor is being criticized in a negative manner, then wait because here his stature is being talked about in a positive manner. Even his best films kept flopping. But, even today, there is something in his personality and acting skills that he is included in the list of the best actors of Bollywood. His birthday is on 5th February, so it is important to see and recognize his different side.

Who are those who are stuck in the gap between star and superstar?
The name of this celebrity is Abhishek Bachchan. They have to appear in two examinations simultaneously. Every time since he became a part of the film world, with the release of every film, he has to go through the test that every actor gives to see how strong he is at the acting level compared to his contemporary and later actors. And the second but important test also has to be given as to where he stands in comparison to the stature of his father Amitabh. Despite being entangled in these exams and appearing to be successful every time, Abhishek Bachchan still has to wait for the fan base.

A woman even slapped me
In an interview given to E Times, Abhishek had revealed that after watching his film Shararat, a woman had slapped him outside the theater. Abhishek told that the woman did not like that film, that is why. He slapped the actor. Besides, it was also said that he was spoiling his father’s name and he should quit acting. However, 10 years later, when his Bol Bachchan was released in the same cinema hall, he was welcomed because he had shown his excellent acting skills to prove himself as the best.

Why is Abhishek Bachchan special despite not being a superstar?
Bollywood is home to three types of actors. One is the star like Salman Khan. Others are those who are just actors like Manoj Bajpayee and Pankaj Tripathi. Thirdly, those two are like Shahrukh, Aamir and Ranveer-Ranbir, Hrithik. The regret is that the audience does not include Abhishek Bachchan in any of these categories. But if critics are to be believed then Abhishek Bachchan is a great actor. Of course, he may not have got the name and fame that he deserves. But if Yuva’s Lallan and Guru’s Gurukant Desai come to your mind as a picture, then of course you may not be their fan but it becomes very difficult to deny that they are excellent actors.

Critics have always been praising
Refugee in 2000 flopped, followed by Dhoom in 2004 which became a hit. During these four years, all the films of Abhishek Bachchan were flops. Even in Dhoom, John Abraham stole the entire limelight. In true sense, it would not be wrong if Bunty Aur Babli, released in 2005, is called Abhishek Bachchan’s first hit film. But whenever Abhishek Bachchan’s name kept appearing in the reviews of each of these films, it was declared excellent. 2004’s Naach, before that Yuva and then Bluffmaster all showed an expanded version of Abhishek Bachchan’s acting. He played different roles with utmost seriousness. Whatever he did in Mani Ratnam’s Guru in 2007 would have been very difficult for any other actor. After this, his gray shade characters in films like Sarkar and Sarkar Raj were also liked by the critics and the audience.

In the review of ‘Yuva’ in Film Companion it is written that “Abhishek has given the best performance of his careerAt the same time, regarding the film Guru, Hindustan Times had written in 2007 that “Abhishek has given the second best performance of his career after Yuva.,

Has the power to overshadow even senior actors
If any actor has received maximum praise in films like Yuva and Bol Bachchan, it is Abhishek Bachchan. Despite having a great actor like Ajay Devgan in both the films, his comic timing and seriousness seemed to dominate the rest of the star cast. Despite the long star cast and presence of Shahrukh Khan in the 2014 film Happy News Year, if the audience laughed the most, it was at the scenes with Abhishek Bachchan. Regarding Bol Bachchan, Anupama Chopra had written in Hindustan Times that “The best thing about the film is Abhishek Bachchan.”

Abhishek Bachchan is still in Bollywood. Along with working in films like Manmarziyaan and Ludo, he has also shown that he is an actor who runs the long race. He still hasn’t given up.
